Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I just bought a Singer Simple to make some easy projects. Within 2 ft of stitches the machine locked up and the bottom bobbin thread is gobbed up and won't let loose. I tried several times to fix the problem. I cleared the thread, checked the case for placement several times, adjusted the bottom bobbin thread. Nothing! I have used an entire bobbin of thread and nothing to show for it. I am SO frustrated!!! Could you please help me resolve this? I don't think this Singer is Simple!
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.
