With your slide plate open, you will see 2 screws on the bobbin case. You need to adjust the one on the inside (not the one that sits at the edge of the metal strip). Do so very slightly. If you can't seem to get it adjusted, take a look and make sure there isn't any thread or lint in between the two pieces of metal that the thread feeds through. This can cause a loose tension.

Putting this back together is a thirty second job if you have done it a hundred times. If you have never done it but have mechanical aptitude, it may be a challenge.
Whatever you do, don't bend the check spring out of shape!
Below is a link to the Singer site with the schematic for reassembly. When placing the check spring back in place, place it in about the 6 o'clock position with no tension so that it has a fair amount of check before pulling it up in place..
When setting the tension, at a setting of "1" the tension disks should just be slightly compressing the beehive spring. "0" is almost no tension at all. Normal sewing is 5.
Get all of the parts together and push in the cup with the numbers while screwing on the knurled nut taking care to get the pin in one of the holes.

If the entire assembly has fallen out you will find if you remove the top left hand cover that there is a small screw in the casting where the tension assembly goes, replace the tension body to the correct position and tighten the little screw.
