Question about Singer 3116 Simple

1 Answer

I can't get my Singer Prelude sewing machine to sew. I took the bobbin out and the metal pieces that holds the bobbin in, but can't get the metal pieces back in correctly, so the machine keeps jamming and leaving lots of thread in between the bobbin and the upper needle area. HELP!

This one will take fidgetting. Basically, ensure that you can get those parts in right(there will really only be one way. Check your manual to make sure you've got them in right. Singer has most manuals available online for free for their machines.)

The problem will continue until you have those parts in correctly. Sorry!

How do i adjust bobbin tension on singer 4210


Open bobbin area and look at your bobbin carrier for a tiny metal screw that holds down a metal piece to the plastic carrier. Tighten the screw. Be careful though...the plastic can strip.

I cannot get the bobbin thread to catch and pull through the footer wen trying to thread the machine?


Make sure your bobbin is placed in correctly. Thread is counterclockwise as you place bobbin in the metal piece. Pull thread end through sliver in metal piece. Hold on to movable metal latch then lock the bobbin in place. Bobbin should not fall out but is able to rotate. Rotate the wheel on the furthest right of your Singer 1507 machine towards you to move the needle downward. The top thread should then be able to catch and pull up the bobbin thread.

Bobbin jumps out of place while I'm sewing and jumbles the thread. I took it to a repairman, it worked for about 3 weeks. Now, same old problem.


I had a similar problem but found it only happened when I used plastic bobbins. I've been using metal bobbins and haven't had the problem again. Hope this helps.

Problem with singer prelude sewing machine!


Firstly make sure when you thread the machine you have the sewing foot in the up position or the thread will not sit in the tension and cause this problem. Also as it is a new machine it may have a small amount of oil from transport stopping the tension discs from separating. Try sliding the folded edge of a piece of fabric with the foot up through the tension unit it may clear the oil away.

Bobbin Case


I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

Bobbin thread getting caught


Check your Instruction manual - if you have taken the bobbin case apart to clean it, the shuttle must be reinserted with the little tab pressing against the piece you mention. It is under page 45 - "Caring for your machine" in my book. I missed it the first time I cleaned and oild mine.
