I am out of town and did not bring my manual and my singer has started messing up. It was doing well on the zig zag stich, but I have changed the thread several times and I don't know if I have missed something. It is loose on the bottom and tight on top. And I have several things to finish before I go home, so would appreciate any help.

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.

I've included an image of the page on threading your machine below:
Do you have your manual? Because it is almost always the top threading, either tangled thread or a bent or dull needle causing the problem. You can download your manual at www.singerco.com for free and enlarge the detail of the diagrams for threading. I just hope that it is something simple and not your timing because that is not a do it yourself job, unfortunately. You can also call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer. and get their advice. Good luck.
Are you using bobbin thread? Is your thead new? Is themachine threaded correctly?
Make sure that when you thread the upper part the thread go under the circle that pull it.
Another thing is that when you hit the start button, pull the upper thread until the machine goes two or three times. It helps the bobbin thread to come up and the machine start sewing.I you leave it along the thread sometimes doesnot comes up and that is why the machine beeps.
I use this technique to make sure it doesnt beep and to cut the thread (the one at the beginning so it doesn't mess my design)
