Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Check the needle to see if it's damaged-roll on flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if the needle makes a popping sound going into fabric it is blunt
check the top thread & bobbin tension
some sewing machines knots up in bobbin area when the top thread comes off the thread take up lever
here's a tip how to tell if thread & needle are compatible
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread
also check to make sure that the bobbin is not warped
