Singer Simple 3116 only sews backward.Looking for answer I saw earlier that involved several steps including buttonholer


You are stuck in buttonhole. The selector knob does not spin round and around. It is moved from Stitch 1 to stitch 14 and back. Try selecting buttonhole and then running the knob in the other direction to straight stitch. If that does not work, (1) drop the lever that senses the button hole attachment, (2) sew a few stitches backward, (3) push the button hole lever rearward, once, hard, (4) rotate the stitch selector to straight stitch.

Where can I find a power cord for singer simple 3116 sewing machine?


It looks like your power cord and foot pedal are incorporated into one unit, and you'll have to replace the foot pedal to get it. You can get it for $30 at sewing parts online, http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-3116-simple-sewing-machine-parts.aspx?gclid=CLTXmrLC18ECFeHm7AodBioADg, and you can also get them from eBay by doing a search on Singer Simple 3116.

I am trying to sew buttonholes with the one step button hole function on my Singer 3116 - Simple. I have been using the function with no issues, but now for some reason, the machine is stopping short and...


There doesnt seem to be a reason - you are doing everything as it should be - lever down to stop the foot according the the button size is the most overlooked step.

I would take the buttonhole foot off and see it is moving as it should. Don't force as the plastic parts can break and then try again to make the buttonhole.

If you still cannot make the buttonhole, the problem may be the control switch and this would have to be checked by a Singer Sewing Machine Tech.

Check your warranty - faulty switches are covered for two years, but you pay the labor.

Hand Wheel Won't Turn


The "Bobbin stopper" is in the incorrect position. It moves from side to side in a switch like motion. In one direction, it locks up the machine. That is, you can turn the wheele backwards, but not forward.. The bobbin stopper can be found in the book that cam with the machine. In our book, it is item #9.

the problem may be in the button hole lever sensor . Next time it stops try moving this lever up and down. if it works ,great. If it doesn't , well, the machine has at least a 2 year warranty on electronics.
