Question about Singer 3116 Simple
The machine worked fine for about 3 or 4 uses. Now the top thread just gets tangled up around the shuttle. I've cleaned/oiled as the manual directs but that did not help.
Are u talking about 3-4 uses from being a new machine or is this a machine you aquired,,,,alot of times the machine can be off timing, if this is not the case always try fully unthreading and rethreading and please use rayon or polyester thread, plus make sure you have the bobbin case in correctly
