In order to solve your problem, you may have to take the machine apart. The gears may have to be looked at and oiled. I would oil every joint.

How to sew buttons on a Singer 2273

Perhaps the manual would be helpful:

Something I do when sewing on buttons is to stick the button to the fabric with glue stick (don't worry, it washes out). Just be very careful when setting up the stitch width to make sure the needle doesn't hit the button. Turn the handwheel by hand first to make sure it is set right. Then sew slowly & carefully with the machine. Finish off with a dab of Fray Check on the back of the stitches to lock the thread.

Thread is bunching under fabric and I've rethreaded both the bobbin and the thread from the top multiple times.

Be sure your bobbin is inserted the correct way (this varies from machine to machine, so check the owner's manual). Bobbin tension is dependent upon this in most Singer machines.

Singer esteem ii wont sew after the needle wouldnt go down and got fixed. when it does sew it skips stitches. what do I do?

Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

if you can send me the model number of the machine,, I'll see if
singer has a free downloadable manual

I have a Singer Esteem II Sewing Machine model 2273. I ordered the ruffler foot 086742-P as listed on the website. I can get it to fit on the machine...i think...however when i lower the needle it hits...

Are there other needle positions on your machine that will allow the needle to pass without hitting? Otherwise, I suspect the accessory you have is not installed correctly or is not correct for your machine.

A friend gave me a Singer Tiny tailor 700 Mending machine recently. The lower thread is not coming up when the needle goes up and down. I referred to the manual. But it is not of much help. Please help me...

make sure your bobbin is threaded correctly from the spool and through the eyelet. with 4 or 5 inches of thread coming out of the bobbin and install the bobbin. Then, hold onto the end of the thread that is threaded through the needle while you manually rotate the spinner allowing the needle to drop all the way down and backup again . If everything is right, your needle thread will come up with the bobbin thread as you slowly pull on the needle thread and rotating the spinner . Make sure you rotate the spinner wheel the same direction it normally rotates while running .

Where do I oil this machine?

You can only oil modern machines on the moving parts that you can see.
