Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Specifically, the thread gets stuck at the part where the thread slides vertically down into the hidden disc on the side. I thought it needed some machine oil, so I bought some to put in it, but it's still getting stuck. The thread just doesn't slide through easily. Can anyone help? Thanks!!
Sometimes the thread on mine will get twisted and creates too high a tension. try re-threading . Mine did this , I have no idea how it got twisted behind there, but it did. I have to re-thread from the spool down.I am used to industrial machines and tend to have a heavy foot on my poor little Singer. That is about all I can think of that may have caused it.
