Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I have a Singer 3116 and when I try to use the buttonholer it stitches in one spot only and won't move. I have everything set according to the manual. It sews everything else fine.

I have found that the problem lies with the button hole pull down. Either it is too far down, or too far up. The problem that I have with it now is that it will never sew the button holes consistantly. I will set it where the button hole needs to be, and it will then proceed to place it where it wants to. Any help on this problem?

try adjusting the size, see if it changes the result and go from there, you might also want to ask other experts, sewing machines are not my speciality.

Also make sure that you pulled the buttonholer lever down and pushed it back (it's on the left side of the presser foot) ... the machine won't make the forward and backward motions to form the buttonhole without it.

There doesnt seem to be a reason - you are doing everything as it should be - lever down to stop the foot according the the button size is the most overlooked step.
I would take the buttonhole foot off and see it is moving as it should. Don't force as the plastic parts can break and then try again to make the buttonhole.
If you still cannot make the buttonhole, the problem may be the control switch and this would have to be checked by a Singer Sewing Machine Tech.
Check your warranty - faulty switches are covered for two years, but you pay the labor.
