Question about Singer 3116 Simple
The needle jammed down in the fabric and I could not raise the needle using the wheel. I removed the bobbin case and saw that thread was jammed. In order to reach it, I had to remove the outer ring thing and the shuttle. I cleared the jam and the needle moves up and down. But now I can't figure out how to re-insert the shuttle and outer ring thing. Please help!!
Maybe one of the parts diagrams at the Singer site would help? or us the contact there?

I solved it myself this way. This is not hard, in fact you can go to www.singerco.com and download your manual for free, then go to page, 82, and enlarge( 200%) the diagram, you then can see your parts really easy. Just take a deep breath and relax, you can do this. Let me know if this helps. I know it is so frustrating when that little thing does not want to cooperate. Good luck. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer
