Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I have a Singer 3116 and I've never been able to get anything done on this machine. I get maybe 2 or 3 stitchs out and the top thread just jams and piles up in the hook. I've oiled it, I've threaded it properly and I've made sure the tension is corrected. There is absolutely nothing else I can thiknk of that I can do to this machine to make it work properly.
Rethread and when you do, be sure presser foot raised so thread can locate the open tension disks. If you threaded machine with presser foot down and flat against needle plate where feed dogs are, no amount of turning dials and de-linting/cleaning will allow those tension disks to draw in thread so you can correct tension. Take heart, a deep, cleansing breadth, and give another try.
IMPORTANT! ALWAYS TURN POWER SWITCH TO OFF POSITION WHEN CHANGING NEEDLES! Hold needle when removing so it doesn't fall into machine.

You most likely have a top tension problem. make sure your top tension unit is clean of any dirt between your tension plates
