Why does the needle stop before inserting down into the bobbin on my Singer Simple sewing machine?

Make sure you are using the correct bobbin and it is put in correctly. If it isn't put in the right way, the needle will hit the bobbin case. Take out the bobbin case and put it back making sure it is snapped into place. If this isn't the problem, use the flywheel and manually lower the needle to see if there is an obstruction.

How do I put the bobbin and parts back together so the needle picks up the thread?

Time to visit the local dealership. I wouldn't try to replace it myself. Too many things can go wrong. Find local dealerships on official website or inside the user's manual: Singer Simple 3116 manual Download Free Manuals

I needed to replace th bobbin case because was broken. Unfortunately, by mistake, I removed the positioning plate. Now, I just cannot put back the parts ( bobbin plate and positioning plate). Is there

The parts list (or chart) may be useful to you, and generally, they are free. The Singer Sewing Machine site does have parts charts for sewing machines as a free download. Go to the Singer Sewing Machine site and type in Parts Chart in the Search box. If you don't find it there, send an email to Singer Customer Support. The reason it might be useful is in addition to a list of parts and their order numers, there are diagrams as to what they are and how they fit together.

My singer sewing machine is jammed. it sewed awhile, the bottom tension too loose, I adjusted it a tad, now its jammed again

try changing the needle
adjust the top tension one number or letter higher till the stitch looks
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
it's also possible that the machine could be out of time & needs
to be checked at a repair shop
