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 you have Increased the upper thread tension on your machine, try these solutions.
* Decrease your bobbin tension if your sewing machine allows you to adjust it. Consult your manual.
* Re-thread your bobbin, It may be threaded incorrectly.
* Reinsert your bobbin, It may be inserted incorrectly.
* Change your thread. If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both.
I hope this helps.

If you go to this site, you can find some pictures and buy a manual fo around 10.00, the manual should have the pictures of the tension in each piece.

SOURCE: bobbin tension is too loose
"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Hi. The upper tension is too loose (even tho it looks ok). If the upper thread is too loose, it can't pull the bobbin thread up to properly form the stitch and you get those messy 'birds nest' on the bottom side of the fabric. I posted a Tip on Adjusting Tension--read that and adjust your upper tension.
