My singer 7463 machine will not form the left side of a buttonhole. The right side is fine the left is not no matter what I do to adjust the machine any suggestions

Make sure the needle is pushed all the way up into the needle bar as high as it will go, probably should put a new needle just to be safe. If that doesnt correct it the machine is probably not in time correct.

Just put my button hole foot on for the first time ready to practise a button hole but it just keeps beeping any ideas?

Yes, you need to review the steps to sew a button hole, because just putting on the foot is not enough. Generally there are several other things that must be set before it will actually sew buttonholes. Download your user's manual free at the Singer Sewing machine website, and review it.

How do i drop the feed dog on singer 7463 confidence so i can free motion sew?

You cannot drop the Feed Dogs on a 7463 Singer. It should have come with a small black plastic shied that will slide over the Feed Dogs and clip into the two holes in the face plate to cover them completely. If you've lost that dark plastic plate, you can also tape an index card over them, or a piece of thin plastic (like template sheets) to get the job done.

Try straight stitching on the left side and then on the right side of the foot. If it doesn't give a stitch on the left it is a sure sign that it needs to be timed.

On my wifes 7463 machine, the needle is 180 degrees out of alignment with the pick up race and jams when lowering the needle. The correct needle is installed and correctly installed. While trying to fix...

do you have it facing the right way, flat side facing the rear of the machine? Oil wick???????? Check the manual carefully. I think that I would take it back to where I bought it and ask them because I have never heard of any of your problems in 50+ years of sewing. You can also call Singer at 1-800-4singer.
