Question about Singer 1116 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I attempt to sew, my needle jams after the 3rd or 4th stitch. When I manually rotate the wheel to loosen it and proceed again, the needle breaks off. I have a Singer model 3116. It is only 1 year old. I have tried to rewind the bobbin, which is where the thread bunches up, but it has not helped.
Needle jams....Thread is caught in the hook...solution...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case,turn the handwheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands.
1. Needles is damaged..Insert new needle
2. The needle is not correctly inserted....insert flat side towards the back
3. Wrong needle size for the fabric...Choose a needle to suit the thread and fabric.
