Singer sewing machine needle moving to the side after it's in the fabric for a zigzag stitch


If you can grab the hand wheel and move it right and left, then it probably needs a plastic collar that goes next to the left upper shaft bushing.
If not then the cam timing needs to be adjusted.

How can I make a buttonhole that's bigger than my buttonhole foot will allow


Measure the button, mark the size of hole you want with a pin at each end. sew 6 full width very close zigzag stitches at one end ending on left side , then sew down to the other end with needle in left position with #2 width stitches, at other end again sew 6 full width zigzag stitches finishing on right side, turn work right around and sew back to other end again with #2 width stitches.
you should now have a rectangle of very close stitches with a very narrow gap between them down the middle. carefully cut between the stitches and you have a button hole.

Only half a stitch


Most likely, your hook timing needs to be adjusted. I'm afraid that this requires a technician, HOWEVER any sewing machine technician can adjust the timing, it's not machine specific.

My sewing machine won't zig-zag stitch


There is usually one source for this problem, and it's easy to fix. Take the end cap of your machine as if you were changing a light bulb. Now you are off...When you switch from straightstich to zigzag, the levers operate across and inside the body so that the needle shaft, you watch it going up and down, can also move sidesways (but only a few mm's (about 3/16 inch)) The needle shaft should both go left and right, freely. It is hinged at the top but half way down ththe shaft it "floats" in a two sided guide. This sounds complicated but it truly is NOT. What happens to neglected machines is that "gunge" forms in the sliding parts and stop the left and right deflections. You my need to prise open the shaft from it's guide to start with (be gentle) but a few drops of oil normally soon allows the needle shaft to slide side to side.
When you can shake the needle shaft from side to side BY HAND (with the machine set in the zigzag mode) replace the end cap and start zigzaging.
And in future oil your flaming sewing machine.....

Zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side.


if the zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side it's very possible that the cam or gear inside that does the zigzag stitch is either worn out or broke or damaged in some way, only a repair shop service tech can tell

I need to know how to make a button hole, can't find manual.


Hi there, don't know your machine but you can do a plaiin buttonhole manually.
Set machine up for zigzag stitch, needle to left side, mark out the size you need with pins or marker pen. Start at the top and set for widest zigzag with 0 length for the top bar, cannot give sizes as don't know the button you are using, about 6 stitches, set stitch width to just over half the width of top bar and length to approx 0.5. Stitch down to bottom marker and again set up ffor the wide bar, do the same amount of stitches as the top, finish with needle down at the outside edge, turn work so that you will now stitch down the other side to meet the top bar, not forgetting to adjust stitch length and width again.
Hope this helps
