Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Hello, I just received the Singer Simple sewing machine for my birthday less than a month ago. I filled the bobbin and threaded the upper thread fine, but am having great difficulties raising the bobbin. Every time I try to bring through the thread, it gets stuck and I have to forcibly pull the thread out or cut it and pull out the rest. I have tried different tension and rethreaded the upper thread several times, but it seems to be a problem of the workings around the bobbin. I tried to research what to do, and tried those things with no luck. It seems this is a common problem among this sewing machine. Could you please help? I am desperate to start sewing!
Use a SA 156 metal bobbin (ebay, 20 of them for $8.99 free shipping) and make sure the bobbin thread is turning the right direction, read you manual or call singer at 1-800-4singer
