Go to www.singerco.com and under customer support, instruction manual, then enter 3116 and download a FREE manual to your computer. Save it and then you never have to wonder where it is. Another great thing is that you can enlarge the diagrams to really see things close up. You are going to find that your threading is not right with your machine for it to do what you describe. Totally rethread, then with the presser foot up, pull on the top and bottom threads, it should move smoothly, now put the foot down, pull the threads, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. Good luck
I had this same problem yesterday. I took apart the needle tension casing and now it doesn't get tangled or stop. The only thing is the bobbin is not sewing...it looks fine on the top, but the bottom is just loose loops.
Check first that you have put the needle in the correct way round, if that is okay then you will need to retime the machine, I can attach timing instructions if you email me and remind me of your machine and letting me know if your bobbin drops in or goes in a seperate bobbin case firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking for a manual for the Mitsubishi relsew DB-130. I need to know the best way to thread the bobin and the correct way to put in the needle. I will take a photocopy of the manual if someone has one?
I was just checking the web for information on my machine, the Janome 5018 and ran across your post. I have an instruction book, if you are still in need of one, you may email me at: email@example.com.
You also need to adjust the pressure foot on the top of the machine. This regulates how much pressure is put on the fabric and the feed. Sounds like it is wrong somehow-maybe you need more pressure. Check the pressure adjustment is screwed in properly if it is this type which unscrews.The pressure adjuster Im reffering to is generally a silver colour and looks a bit like a basic tyre pressure guage or pressure cooker valve-it just got a cuple of lines on it and sits on the top left of the machine above the needle bar. The other thing which could cause problems is the bobbin tension-make sure it is running thru smoothly but not too loose.
