Question about Brother Sewing Machines
If it is part of a programmed stitch, you most likely cannot change it. However, before the programmed buttonhole function, sewists were able to create buttonholes manually on their sewing machines. Not so difficult, really. And you can sew Step 3 however you want.

Mine did the same thing. The needle is probably to high. Do not insert the needle all the way to the top. Lower it a bit and it should zig zag!

Remove the needle plate, bobbin case and bobbin and clean any lint that has accumulated.
Oil, if the manual indicates you should do this and where it should be done. Some do not as it has to be done by a repair tech.
Re-thread the machine with the presser foot in the up position.
Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.
If the problem continues, the machine will have to be services by a sewing machine repair person. Take samples of the stitching so they can see what it happening - it could be the timing has to be reset.

the mechanism is worn that makes the needle head move in a zig zag fashion ,need to be taken to a repair man to have the worn parts renewed

put in a new needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin--use every thread guide
make sure the zig zag settings are correct
it's also possible that the machine could have a worn or damaged gear or cam--which would have to be checked at a sewing machine shop
