Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine
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!

does your manual mention anything about a buttonhole lever that must be pulled down each time you make a buttonhole & then pushed back up afterwards

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.
