Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Check these two things first.. Pull the bobbin out and look at how it is wound. Is it evenly wound across the bobbin ? Is the bobbin moving with the thread coming out the right way? ie not put in the bobbin casing backwards.
Try a different bobbin to make sure it is not the above problems. If it sews ok then there's something with the way the bobbin is wound or inserted. Also make sure when you put the bobbin back in the machine you feel/hear it click into place.
If that's ok then check your needle to see if it is bent, or in wrong or the wrong type of needle for the machine (tho most new machines all can use regular needles...older machines sometimes required specific needles made for that brand). Try changing needles.
