Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Install a brand new needle and confirm it is installed correctly.
Changing thread brands may be helpful. AVOID old or bargain bin threads. Focus on spending a bit more for better quality thread.
If it still does not work, it could be the machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

Hi, try re-timing the machine. Select "straight stitch," then take the bottom off the machine to see underneath the bobbin case area. Open the faceplate and look for two marks on the needle bar around where it enters the machine. Take out the bobbin case to see the hook. Turn the balance wheel toward you so the needle is going down. Stop turning when the needle is just about to start on its way up. The bottom mark on the needle bar should be just about to enter the machine, and the point of the hook should be just above the eye of the needle. If it isn't, tilt the machine backward and loosen the two screws on the vertical gear so you can move the hook to where it should be. Tighten the screws and put everything back so you can test your setup. If it sews a straight stitch correctly, try it on zigzag wide stitch. If it misses one side, repeat the timing process.
