I have the same problem. Driving me nuts. The tension dial is broken, as far as I can tell. Just craps out from time to time. Sometimes turning it on and off helps. I personally think it's a problem with the electronic controls.

You can get a users manual from the Singer Website for model 5040.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this helps.

My wife just had this a similar problem with her Singer Omega 36 where she could sew straight and select patterns but could not zig zag. If you open the top of the machine you can see where a little lever connects to the white plastic pattern module that gets inserted in the top. The reason for the problem was that the lever was not touching the bottom of the module properly. The notches on the module cause the needle to move from side to side creating a zig zag. The module needs to be inserted correctly, by this I mean fully and the correct way around or it does not reach the lever when it is in the A position. At first inspection it looks the module could be inserted any way around but there is a thin and a fat clip. You need to try both ways to see which on sits lower in the machine. You may now need to adjust the tension on the machine as the lever will nowe move differently inside the machine. This fixed my wifes problem.
