Question about Singer 3116 Simple
There should be a screw to release the needle from the arm, it's possible the needle is crooked and the screw is holding it in at a wrong angle. Try removing the needle and then reinstall is making sure if there's a flat edge on the top of the needle that it aligns with the flat side of the entry hole, it may take a flashlight to see if there's any difference on the machine entry hole. If that doesn't work, you may need to try adjusting the plate as well, all of these things can get just a little out of alignment making for trouble. Hope this helps.
