Question about Singer 3116 Simple
Posted by Anonymous on
It won't do straight stitch?
Take the needle out... see if it is moving the fabric when you press on the presser foot. If it is not, then you need to raise the feet (it's under the accessory box/table face. If it does move the fabric. Make sure your machine is set to Zig Zag. again without needle... sew. Does the needle bar move? change to straight stitch, does the needle bar move? If it does I think you have the wrong size needle. If it does not, I'm afraid your plastic machine has broken... take it in for repair.

Reduce the width of the zig zag as a short term fix, but it seems that you either have the incorrect foot attached, or the ZZ width setting needs adjusting.
If, when the needle is set to be centred, is it actually slightly off-centre ?? You may do worse than have a service done, explaining the issue you face as well as a general go over.
As this was posted some time ago, I hope it has been resolved for you.

you have your dial setting wrong because i cannot work out how a zigzag is sewing a straight line have you set both the dial and the knob - one knob for straight stitch and another knob for the settings for a large stich or a small stitch ,these have to be set up right for it to zigzag and further questions and i will send the wife for free so long as you dont give her back
