Haven't had the Singer Sew Simple very long. Second time to use it. Ready to throw it out the window. Bobbin tension seems to be off. Thread keeps knotting up and breaking under fabric, jamming the...


Have you tried re-threading it? Remember to keep the presser foot up as you thread so that the tension discs are open. Re-thread the upper thread because it can often cause bobbin jams.

Check there are no broken threads in the bobbin raceway.
Sometimes the wrong size needle upsets the tension.

What series bobbin do I use for a singer simple sewing machine model no. 3116


Download a manual at www.singerco.com and it will say, 15J but, personally I like to use a metal SA 156 and I have no jamming like I do with plastic bobbins. You can buy them really cheap on ebay, 20 for $8.99 and free shipping, Very quick delivery. I have had no jamming after I started using the metal ones. Good luck
