Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I just got this machine and have attempted a some test stitching and the reverse button will not work. It sounds like it's doing something, but the lever is floppy and it doesn't appear act like it's engaging.
Here is a download for your manual
pg 32 talks about sewing in reverse sewing.
but doesn't give much on trouble shooting other than hold the lever while sewing. If that's not the case, then I think your feed dogs are the issue. check your feed dog drop. pg 9 part 12
If you think the reverse lever is sloppy, professional action should be taken, (take it in to be repaired under warranty?)
I hope this was helpful.
