Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Singer simply sewing machine
The needle should be in the up position or the threader won't come down, still when it does, you have to get the thread right across the hole in the needle for it to catch,
another problem is that you bent or broke the center pin that pulls the thread through the needle,
the tip that comes to the needle has three parts, the two outer ones that wrap around the needle and the center pin that goes through the hole in the needle,
If this is bent you may be able to bend it back if broke you need to get it replaced
take a good magnifier and take a look at the center pin!
Hope this helps

First thaing you should check is the tension pulley if it is poperly adjusted. Adjust it to the factory setting. Then check the needle if it is properly sitted. Then you look into the bobbin case and refix the bobbin.
Adjust your thread tension. It may be too tight or too loose.
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate). (Important: After changing your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide stitches.)
Hope this was helpful to you. All the best Elect_Comp
