If you have had this repaired several times, I am inclinded to believe that the shop is resetting the timing and after a little while it jumps time again. If this is correct, you probably have a gear that is defective. I have seen the gears where the nylon material did not set correctly and actually spins around on the metal. Since the nylon is intact, it does not appear broken and until the technician actually sees it spin, there is no way to know it is defective. You could take it back and ask the tech to check for that.

Please share the symptoms of a messed up timing on a Singer Confidence sewing machine. Thank you in advance

A timing issue is usually demonstrated by the needle thread failing to pick up the bobbin thread. First, try installing a brand new needle as a bent/damaged needle will sometimes also fail to pick up the bobbin thread. You can search the internet for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

How do I reset the timing on the singer simple 3116 machine,

Why do you think it is the timing? What is the machine doing that makes you think that is the problem? If, it does have the timing messed up, it is not a do it yourself job. You need tools and expertise to do it right. Let's hope that it is something more fixable at home. Write back and state the problems.

How do you retime a singer 3116?

You cannot do it yourself unless you have the special tools or expertise. Why do you think that your timing is messed up? It is kind of hard to mess up timing unless you did something to cause it. Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and see if your machine is under warranty.

Your machine needs a professional to fix your timing and tune it up. You may have messed up the timing when you took off the belt. It is worth getting it fixed.

I'm trying to reset the timing on my futura machine, can you show me a diagram of where the needle should be before I tighten the ''screws''? This machine has been in the main repair center in TN 4 times,...

Lisa, I cannot solve your problem because I have the same one. After paying for shipping twice to the Singer repair that Singer told me I had to use the machine is still not working. I am so mad and disappointed at Singer. I think a class action lawsuit would be great since these machines are lemons!

Needle keeps hitting bobbin case on my Singer CE 100 Futura, it is now jammed completely. Why is this?

either your bobbin case isnt installed right or the machine's timing is messed up try to get needle loose or completly out is preferred then try turning it and see if it comes unjammed if so take your bobbin case out and reinstall it making sure it is in the fit right if this dont solve it then you need to get timing set (not recommended to do at home get pro to do it ) hope this helps you

Bobbin case catching-tangling thread

It sounds to me that you might have the wrong type of bobbin in the case. The top of the bobbin should not be higher than the case. Thread will slip through the space and cause problems. Also unevenly wound bobbins will also cause this symptom.
Or your losing tension which you will have to adjust tighter.
