I just figured out how to use the buttonhole feature today. Make sure where you insert the button is towards the back of the machine. Pull down the button hole lever and make sure it's between to two plastic notches. The buttonhole lever will actually be pressed against notch B as described in the instructions. Insert your material and let the bottonhole foot down. You will to play with the stitch width and length to get the right size opening. I hope this helps!

Hi can’t make the button hole big enough using the special one step Pfaff foot . Won’t go bigger than 8mm


It could be that 8mm is the limit for the buttonhole foot. You can try making buttonholes manually with the sewing machine. Not really difficult. Just need to be careful marking the buttonhole and stitching. Recommend practicing on scrap fabric before trying it on the project.

Singer confience stylist beeps four time and won't let me sew


The beeps usually indicates that your machine is not ready to sew which probably means a function has been left in the activated mode, ie bobbin winder, buttonhole function, etc. . Here are some ideas:

I am trying to make a buttonhole using the buttonhole foot and everytime i go to sew the machine beeps and will not let me sew?


if you have a automatic buttonhole , then you should have a buttonhole lever that you have to pull down, before you start to do the buttonhole,, my machine will not let me do a buttonhole unless I pull down the buttonhole lever

I have a Singer model 9910 and am not able to make a buttonhole on the setting for #61. The buttonhole seems to be inserted properly and the foot is lowered but the machine just beeps and will not sew.


Re your buttonhole foot - please note the following:

- This foot comes with a metal underplate.

- Place the fabric between the foot and the underplate.

- I am assuming that you have the buttonhole lever pulled down.

-Note: The silver coloured buttonhole lever is directly behind the needle threader. Pull it all the way down.

-When u have all the above in place, start the buttonhole. When it finishes the first side, gently push the foot back, so it reverses. I know this sounds strange, but if you have slightly bent the underplate you will need to do this.

- The directions are in the manual on page 60.

I get a beeping sound when I try to make button holes


Ensure that your buttonhole foot is attached, and that your buttonhole guide is slid all the way down(It is a small, flat-tabbed bar just behind your needle threader.) 

Ensure that once the bar is down, that it is able to sit between the two buttonhole foot guide tabs, and is not pushed by either of the tabs in either direction yet.(The pushing of the buttonhole guide bar is what causes the machine to stop, sew sideways, and start going the other way)

How do i use the automatic buttonhole on kenmore 19233??


Your machine should have a special buttonhole foot which has a place to insert a button, You will probably have to pull on opposite ends of the foot to open it. Place the button in the foot and then squeeze it together to make the button secure. Attach the foot to the machine. It should snap on.
looking at the left side of the machine you will see your needle bar at the front and the presser foot bar at the back. You should also see another lever which needs to be pulled down so that it rests in the buttonhole foot.Select buttonhole on your machine and it should sew. The button determines how long the buttonhole is.

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.
