Buttonhole Foot on Singer 4423 Not Working

My buttonhole foot won't make buttonholes. I have all the settings right, in the correct order. All I get is a glob of thread. The foot doesn't move like it should to make the buttonhole.

Has anyone else had this issue?

From patternreview.com:

The older Singer Professional buttonholers, do need to be cleaned, oiled at their moving parts and kept free of grit/dust, which they accumulate a lot of while they do their thing. Something might have seized inside the attachment. If there'a s lever on the side, move it back and forth to make sure it actually moves the the buttonholer smoothly along the gauge mechanism and back again in its whole circuit without sticking.

Make sure there is no lint or thread in the buttonholer or the bobbin area.
