I would call customer service at singer.com they are very helpful, Is your needle inserted right with flat side facing the back? Inserted all the way up? Watch your video again, and read your manual. Sometimes, it something so simple as lint or a piece of the needle still in there, take it apart again and try.

I have a singer 3116 sewing machine. It works fine for the first couple stiches and then its starts making this weird noise and the thread gets cought around the bobbin case under the machine. I tried to...


Call Singer if this persists, without hearing the sound I would only be guessing what the problem is. The phone number is 1-800-4singer for customer service.

Bought blind hem stitch for a 3116 singer and the needle hits it


I think you may have to make an adjustment on your blind hem foot, it also could be the wrong fit for your machine.

If you bought this machine at WalMart, I recommend you return and the go to JoAnn Fabrics. Walmart can buy millions of these machines and pay next to nothing for them. I don't even suggest a beginner buy this machine.

Singer Simple.....not really!


You really should go on the Singer website and look up support and frequently asked questions. If, you cannot find your manual they have it there to download for free. I really think that you are not threading the machine right, check it with the presser foot up and the thread should feed freely, then lower the presser foot and it should not feed at all or very little. Most of the bunching of thread underneath is the fault of the top thread not the bobbin. Make sure you turn the handwheel towards you never away from you. Also, check your needle, inserted flat side away from you and, if it were me, I would use a new needle before I sewed again, This machine comes with a dvd, try watching it.
