Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Moved lever on singer simple sewing machine and now feeder teeth are not engaged and can't reengage. Does anyone know how to fix without having to open the machine. Sewing pants for daughter's orchestra performance on cello.
While attempting to engage the feed dogs with the switch, wiggle the hand while a little back and forth. Sometimes that motion will help it slide back into sewing mode.

It might be the way you're asking that's confusing the problem. It's simple to remove the hand wheel, slip the belt over the track, and then replace the hand wheel. It really depends on the model of your machine - is it by chance a 328K?

Most likely the "dogs" inside the lever are broken off. Oil/grease on the metal rod cause chemical attack to the plastic lever and the "dogs" break. Singer should know to degrease this rod before assembly.

Sounds like you threaded it wrong and kept trying to sew, gently get all of your material out of the machine, DO NOT FORCE, GENTLY ROCK IT OUT OR YOU WILL WRECK THE MACHINE, also watch your dvd and learn about threading from your book. Always, hold your thread ends when you start to sew. If, you cannot find your manual go to www.singerco.com, I have sewn for 50+ years and found that the dvd was very helpful, each machine is different.
