Question about Sewing Machines
The buttonholer only makes a very very small buttonhole no matter what size button is put in it for a size.

try adjusting the size, see if it changes the result and go from there, you might also want to ask other experts, sewing machines are not my speciality.

Yes, If you have a zigzag function use that. First you must keep the zigzag function stationary then set it to about a one or two on the stitch dial. Try that!

Also make sure that you pulled the buttonholer lever down and pushed it back (it's on the left side of the presser foot) ... the machine won't make the forward and backward motions to form the buttonhole without it.

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.

I have a computerized machine also, when I start to do a buttonhole my machine it beeps & gives me a error message BL. which means I forgot to pull the buttonhole lever down again

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
