Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Could be a lot of things but it usually your top theading. On this machine I use a metal SA 156 bobbin and have no jamming, but that is my preference. For your threading, totally rethread, now with the presser foot up, pull your top thread, it should feed smoothly, then put the presser foot down, now pull the thread, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. You should have had a dvd to show you how to operate your machine in your manual bag. Also, study your manual. If, you are trying to sew on sheer or lightweight fabric, use a stabilizer of some sort, (gift tissue paper or printer paper works also).
