Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I have just bought a new Singer 3116. Starting sewing for a while and then when I put my foot on the foot pedal the needle would not come down and the handwheel would no longer turn backwards or forwards. What am I doing wrong or is this a problem machine? Nothing is jammed. I have tested upper thread test and bobbin test. Both seem to be fine.
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.

CHECK THE BOBBIN SWITCH.

I recently took mine in to get fixed. The problem was that there are 2 holes where the spools sit ontop of the sweing machine and the pin was in the wrong hole. Everytime I would start sewing the vibrations from the machine would make the pin drop down and stop something from moving inside. Took 1min to fix and cost $5. Now is working great.
