Question about Singer 3116 Simple
When the hand wheel is turned clockwise (when looking at the right end of the machine) the needle works normally ... when the hand wheel is turned counter clockwise (when looking at that right end of the machine) the needle is stopped by something!!!! It makes not difference if the bobbin is in or not!!! Please help!!!!
Thanks Phyllis Fullerton

here is some troubleshooting
Download your manual.
Ok I know that youve checked this, but I have to ask.
Check and make sure the reverse lever isnt engaged.
I'm looking at pg 27 and see you have a traditional bobbin casing (not a drop in) make sure your bobbin is wound well and the case is inserted correctly. (they are picky)
Change your needle make sure its in right and tight. (I have bent many a needle just slightly, and it causes huge issues with this particular type of bobbin casing)
Pg 35 gives a test for the bobbin tension. If your thread rolls, the tension is too loose, OR the case may have gotten damaged.
Lets see if this helped.

I'm giving you a direct link to the Manual on page 82 of which is explained the procedure of removing the needles so you can attach new ones the same way...
Lemme know if it helps :-)

SOURCE: Hand Wheel Won't Turn
The "Bobbin stopper" is in the incorrect position. It moves from side to side in a switch like motion. In one direction, it locks up the machine. That is, you can turn the wheele backwards, but not forward.. The bobbin stopper can be found in the book that cam with the machine. In our book, it is item #9.

readjust the hook to just grab the thread loop as the needle raises it will take a few tries to get the exact setting for the hook (maybe you will see a mark on the hook shaft to show you where the hook's set screw was located before it slipped)
