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.

What model singer buttonhole attachment will fit a Bernina 807 minimatic machine. This question was asked but I can't find the answer.

Most likely a Singer presser foot will not attach to your Bernina. They are not interchangeable.

You can also probably use something like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOImaKwv4fU
but you need to purchase a snap-on shank adapter for your Bernina, like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/PRESSER-FOOT-SNAP-ON-SHANK-ADAPTER-BERNINA-OLD-STYLE-530-1630-0062617000/282290526069?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D40807%26meid%3D4fe9a7b6fca84bb3adef4f466cc8776f%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D401187382421

Or, are you talking about the presser foot? Bernina #033? You can usually find a replacement through eBay, or even purchase a snap-on shank and pick up a snap-on buttonhole foot. But, if you have another zig-zag foot or open-toe presser foot, you can probably get by with using it as long as you can see your marks on the fabric when you stitch.

If you are actually referring to a buttonhole attachment like what is available for new machines, you may be out of luck. Probably not any available for this older model. The automatic buttonhole attachment usually has a sensor that your machine does not accommodate and the buttonhole attachments have a different shank that will not work on the older machines.

However, the buttonhole dial on your machine should work just fine. You just need to do more pre-work, ie measuring the button and marking the buttonholes on the fabric before stitching them. Even if the machine is only a zig-zag, buttonholes can still be done on them. Just be sure to practice a few buttonholes on scrap fabric before trying them on your garment. Get the stitch length so the zig-zag stitch has no gaps between threads but also does not overlap the thread next to it. Also, check that the tension does not cause the fabric to pucker (be sure to use a stabilizer between the fabric to prevent the fabric from stretching or distorting).

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.

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).

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.
