Question about Singer 3116 Simple
It really dose not sew on the under side it turns into a big mess and the top there nothing weve rethreaded it the bobbin and upper what do we do
I have the same machine. I found that the tension mechanism would stick and have no tension. I disassembled it to find an arm that goes from the tensioner assebly to the foot lift mechanism. The arm had jumped on top of another metal piece, sticking the tensioner in the loose position. This would not happen all the time. I removed the arm from the tensioner and bent it so it was straight (or slightly down) so the arm would not jump on top of the other piece. When you raise the foot, the arm releases the tension on the thread.

Tension issue,,,,,upper tension assembly needs to be adjusted, either the machine is not being threaded correctly or tension assembly is bad,,,
