If you reach behing the foot holder there is a black lever. You can use this to remove and install each foot. Don't be afraid to play around with your machine, there's not much you can do to it that can't be fixed easily.

I have a new machine. This is the second the first had the same problem so I exchanged it. It worked fine on 1 project on both machines the next the time it did the following. When sewing stich #8 which is a zig-zag stitch with a straight line on one side, I get the #8 stitch on one the bottom side and the #13 stitch on the top side. I have read the manual, also re-wound the bobbin twice re-threaded the machine twice and changed the needle none of these worked. Do you have any suggestions.

Need instructions for Singer buttonhole attachment 103233.


I found a manual for several Singer Buttonholers here: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/manuals/singer-sewing-machine-manuals.html . I'm not sure of the part number for the Professional Buttonholer Model, which looks like the one for my Singer Touch & Sew. Mine is part #161829 (if I read the box correctly).

I hope these help.

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

When I press the button to make a buttonhole and step on the power, all I get is a beep. How do I make a buttonhole in that one easy step?!


Is there a little arm you need to pull down behind the presser foot? And a buttonhole foot that needs to go onto the machine?

Do you have a manual for it to check out the buttonhole procedure? try this link
http://www.singerco.com/resources/buttonhole.html for some instructions and images but always good to have the machines manual if you can get one.

Many of the machines with the one step buttonhole function have a white plastic slide type foot and the buttonhole lever that you pull down. You put a button into a clip at the back of the foot to "measure" the buttonhole length. Then start sewing, the machine will do a bartack, then start backwards, the pulldown lever will then connect with the foot when it gets to the right length, start the end bartack, then reverse back up the other side of the buttonhole and finish off when it comes back to the start of the foot.

The Singer will probably be some variation of this system, hope this helps.

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.

The thread breaks a lot when sewing.


Use a good brand of thread and not old or cheap thread.

Thread as indicated in the manual (always with the presser foot up).

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.

You go to the back edge of the presser foot (where it would be) there is a little button and a little slot and out the back of the presser foot toward the slot and it should click in

One step button Hole V for Singer Sewing Machine


Hi, I had the same problem, but I finally found my manual. The solution is that you have to use the presser foot for buttonholes but the most important part is that you have to lower the buttonholer lever. It is located right next to the needle to the left. It is a metal lever with a little square white plastic end. You need to pull that down in order the the buttonhole feature to work. My button was too big for the buttonhole presser foot, so I had to use the regular presser foot, but hit the buttonhole lever with my had to make it go up or down.
