My Singer 3116 Simple is tangling up by the bobbin and leaving knots of thread on the underside of material?

Thread it right...with the lever up. Then adjust your top tension.

If you still have problems check the bobbin carrier/shuttle for burrs. If you find burrs carefully sand with fine grit sand paper.

You can go here: for a free download of the manual. If the instructions seem to be written for a rocket scientist, just look at the pictures and duplicate with your machine.

I just got a new Singer Simple. I had a problem with the needle thread getting caught in the bobbin shuttle. I disassembled this area, found a random thread, and cleaned it out. I put it all back together...

Do you have the bobbin thread going the right way, according to owners manual some go clock wise some go counter clock wise when you pull the thread after bobbin inserted in bobbin case

How to thread the bobbin on a singer simple sewing machine

Drop-in bobbin: Note: thread must change direction when entering bobbin shuttle notch. Usually bobbin will turn counter-clockwise when threaded properly.

1. hold bobbin so that the tail of thread is facing to left.
2. drop bobbin into bobbin shuttle.
3. pull thread toward you.
4. guide thread into notch and pull to left so that slot engages thread.
5. pull thread diagonally across shuttle toward back of machine.
6. draw bobbin thread up through needle plate with threaded needle.
