Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I know that you do not want to hear it but your top threading is not right. Try this test, put your presser foot up and pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly. If not, you are not making sure that the thread is going through the tension discs on your way down. Rethread and make sure you are not using old thead, Try using a new needle. Read your manual, all machines are different even if you have been sewing for years. If, you do not have your manual, download one for free at www.singerco.com and enlarge the diagrams to see what you are doing clearly.
