Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Singer 1036 1-step buttonhole foot. It will make 1 perfect buttonhole. When I try to make the next one it makes a short buttonhole, never moving forward enough to hit the lever.

I have to change the settings to a regular stitch and then go through the setup again to get 1 more buttonhole.

Possibly your machine does not make repeat buttonholes and you need to set every time? Are you stitching all the way around before resetting.

SOURCE: Singer 7462 buttonholer

generally most sewing problems are due to sticking parts because of non usage as =you have stated or because the tension has been not set right. what I suggest is that you take the time to do some cleaning of the machine like what bis pointed out in your manual use a light weight mineral oil to wipe the moving parts with, but not too much. also adjust the tension of the foot so there is pressure on the material as to move it while sewing. after all the cleaning and adjusting rethread the bobbin and make sure it is seated properly also rethread the need and make sure the thread moves freely from the spool. this should do the trick. please rate this

push the lever back, look at your manual and you will see what I mean. Read the manual and watch the dvd and you will see what you are doing wrong.

Instructions for making a buttonhole


The method will depend on your make & model machine, although the vintage sewing machine buttonhole method will work on all zig-zag machines (just requires manually measuring and adjusting the stitch length & width during the process):

Be sure there is a stabilizer between the fabric where the buttonhole is located so the fabric will not stretch or tear.

Cannot reset buttonhole size


Assuming its a singer domestic machine
1.For a 1 step buttonhole, you will need to place and lock the actual button at the buttonhole foot holder(back end of the foot), the size will remain the same each time you sew a button hole.
2.For a 4 step buttonhole, the size is determine by sliding the foot against the line/marker which you can see on the foot itself each time you start to sew the button hole.

When I press the button to make a buttonhole and step on the power, all I get is a beep. How do I make a buttonhole in that one easy step?!


Is there a little arm you need to pull down behind the presser foot? And a buttonhole foot that needs to go onto the machine?

Do you have a manual for it to check out the buttonhole procedure? try this link
http://www.singerco.com/resources/buttonhole.html for some instructions and images but always good to have the machines manual if you can get one.

Many of the machines with the one step buttonhole function have a white plastic slide type foot and the buttonhole lever that you pull down. You put a button into a clip at the back of the foot to "measure" the buttonhole length. Then start sewing, the machine will do a bartack, then start backwards, the pulldown lever will then connect with the foot when it gets to the right length, start the end bartack, then reverse back up the other side of the buttonhole and finish off when it comes back to the start of the foot.

The Singer will probably be some variation of this system, hope this helps.

One thing to try is that the button hole lever has not moved to the front or back of the guide, make sure that it is in the direct middle. Sometimes they get moved when you take out or insert fabric. If, that is not it, call Singer and find out if there is a problem with this model, because if it is maybe you can exchange it. Their phone number, 1-800-4singer

I am trying to sew buttonholes with the one step button hole function on my Singer 3116 - Simple. I have been using the function with no issues, but now for some reason, the machine is stopping short and...


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.

Buttonhole instructions needed for Singer 7422 Advance


These are the exact instructions from the Manual. 1. Select one of buttonhole patterns.
2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front)
3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped)
4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B.
5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.
6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear.
7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot.
8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.
*Sewing will be completed automatically.
9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread.
I hope this helps.

One step button Hole V for Singer Sewing Machine


Hi, I had the same problem, but I finally found my manual. The solution is that you have to use the presser foot for buttonholes but the most important part is that you have to lower the buttonholer lever. It is located right next to the needle to the left. It is a metal lever with a little square white plastic end. You need to pull that down in order the the buttonhole feature to work. My button was too big for the buttonhole presser foot, so I had to use the regular presser foot, but hit the buttonhole lever with my had to make it go up or down.
