Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew


after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

Our simple 3116 won't zigzag stitch,the needle is off to the right and will not do any other stitches. Help!!


It won't do straight stitch?
Take the needle out... see if it is moving the fabric when you press on the presser foot. If it is not, then you need to raise the feet (it's under the accessory box/table face. If it does move the fabric. Make sure your machine is set to Zig Zag. again without needle... sew. Does the needle bar move? change to straight stitch, does the needle bar move? If it does I think you have the wrong size needle. If it does not, I'm afraid your plastic machine has broken... take it in for repair.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

When sewing hems and coming across a thick seam, the pressure foot seems to not allow the material to run through, keeping it stalled while the needle continues to pump into the material eventually...


I don't think you can adjust the feed pressure on this machine. I have the same machine and the same problem and my solution is the same as you've already mentioned - raise the foot and move the fabric by hand. I would do it by turning the wheel by hand until the seam is clear of the foot to prevent breaking a needle or sewing my fingers.

The needle is stuck,not moving.its very hard and the motor makes a sound but needle does not move.


Refer to your manual and make sure the bobbin winding feature is disengaged.

Turn off the power and remove the needle and if there is fabric, remove it also.

Open the needle plate look for thread tangles.

After cleaning, turn the hand-wheel by hand to see if it moves the needle up and down.

If it does, press on the foot pedal to see if it is working.

Any of the above could be the problem.

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.
