Our simple 3116 won't zigzag stitch,the needle is off to the right and will not do any other stitches. Help!!


It won't do straight stitch?
Take the needle out... see if it is moving the fabric when you press on the presser foot. If it is not, then you need to raise the feet (it's under the accessory box/table face. If it does move the fabric. Make sure your machine is set to Zig Zag. again without needle... sew. Does the needle bar move? change to straight stitch, does the needle bar move? If it does I think you have the wrong size needle. If it does not, I'm afraid your plastic machine has broken... take it in for repair.

My sewing machine does not stitch when I press the motor. The needle moves up and down but only stays in the same spot. What should I do?


:o) Did you re-engage the clutch after you wound your bobbin? Also check to see if your feed dogs are lowered... and that your stitch length is adequate.

Hi! I have a singer simple 3116 sewing machine


It is the top threading that is giving you the problem not the bobbin thread. Try this, totally rethread, the machine. A new needle will not hurt either. Now with the presser foot up, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull the thread again, it should barely move. This usually will seat the thread in the tension discs.
Good luck and Merry Christmas

When I am sewing the needle moves up and down and so to the feeder feet but it will not pull the fabric through. I am not sure what to do...


Try lengthening your stitches on your stitch guide, it could be trying to stitch too tightly together & not stitching 'forward'....

Bought blind hem stitch for a 3116 singer and the needle hits it


I think you may have to make an adjustment on your blind hem foot, it also could be the wrong fit for your machine.

Stitch is uneven, not straight, and tension off on top and bottom


on my industrial machine this was caused by the wrong size needle. the length was off just a fraction. just an idea, in case you bought generic needles or something.

Rewatch your dvd that came with your machine. If, you do not have that, read the manual. Sometimes you have the thread feeding the wrong way, make sure that it unwinds toward you. Also, check your needle, change if necessary. Make sure the flat side faces the rear of the machine and is inserted all the way up.

Needel hits somthing inside moter tries to go but needl will not let it singer sewing machine model 3116 this is a new machine


Are you making sure that the needle is in the highest position when you start to sew, and hold your threads until 4 or 5 stitches forward. Replace your needle and make sure you have it inserted flat side faces away from you and pushed up all of the way.
