Question about Singer 3116 Simple
My maching let me sew for about 30 mins then it just got all messed up, it would do 3 stitches then stop and be stuck. Its getting all bunched and stuck on the metal arm of the bobbin holder and not coming through and up like it should. I've removed the bobbin and messed with it several times with no luck. What can I do to fix this?
thanks so much in advance
It sounds to me that you might have the wrong type of bobbin in the case. The top of the bobbin should not be higher than the case. Thread will slip through the space and cause problems. Also unevenly wound bobbins will also cause this symptom.
Or your losing tension which you will have to adjust tighter.

SOURCE: won't stitch properly
ever tried adjusting the thread tension control? clean if possible
tighen it more, loose tension adjustment causes loose stitch and tangling of the thread.
