Unless you want to deal with the little screws to take it apart, you may take it to an authorized singer service dealer. Look in your local yellow pages under sewing machines.

You are jammed up with thread or material. Clean it out, rethread, wind a new bobbin. Oil your machine and put in a new needle. When you sew, hold the thread ends when you first start out sewing for about 4-5 stitches. Read your manual, watch your dvd on instructions

SOURCE: handwheel is tight and will
Try clearing out all of your lint, pieces of thread and debris from the bobbin area. If that doesn't work, then you may need to have your machine cleaned. I had the same problem with my machine, and took it to my repair guy. He told me that the mechanism of the machine was packed tight with lint and "stuff" that had worked in. After a thorough cleaning, the machine ran like new.
You may also want to try to completely unthread the machine and rethread it (both top and bobbin). Sometimes that works.

You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in the model number and click "search".
This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?
However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.
