Question about Singer 7442 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I've answered this question for this model a couple times. Ensure that the buttonhole lever is all the way down. Also, ensure that it is point STRAIGHT down, and is not pushed by the buttonhole foot in any way.

SOURCE: singer 7436 buttonhole problem
I have found that the problem lies with the button hole pull down. Either it is too far down, or too far up. The problem that I have with it now is that it will never sew the button holes consistantly. I will set it where the button hole needs to be, and it will then proceed to place it where it wants to. Any help on this problem?

Souds like a stitch balance problem how long since the machine was serviced as the buttonhole mechanism can seize up if not used frequently.

Look for the buttonhole lever, just in front of the presserlever, on the lefthand side of the machine. Pull it down and push it back to the top. Good Luck

I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.
