Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Singer Quantum XL-100: the timing is off. I sewed over a very thick belt loop and bobbbin thread started coming to top, also there were some skipped stitches. A computerized machine, none of the tensions will make stitch be correct. I read in FixYa that others have timing problems. Is there a way for me to adjust timing? I purchased it new , this is first problem with it.

put the tension to about 4 and make sure it is threaded in a N shape and remember the thread catcher above the needle from the bobbin to left down round tension up to arm down the side.

SOURCE: Loopy thread during stitching
if loops appear on underside of fabric, make sure machine is threaded correctly (check instruction manual for threading). when presser foot is resting on feed dogs, needle thread should be quite tight when pulled through needle (needle should bend a little). if thread does not feel tight, check threading again and ensure thread is between tension discs (presser foot should be up for threading and then down to check tension). if threading is good and tension seting is at 5 but still not tight enough check no htread is caught in tension assembly. if tension assembly is clear try tightening needle thread tension to 6,7 or 8 and see if that helps.
if the above is correct check for damage to the needle hole in the needle plate and polish with fine emery tape if necessary.
if you still have trouble best see a technician for possible repair to bobbin case or hook/shuttle mechanism which you may damage trying to fix yourself.

Well is your machine skipping stitches? "Not looping" does that mean not creating a stitch? To adjust your bottom stitch you usually adjust the top tension regulator. I can try to help you more in detail check out my forums http://www.sewingmachineryrepair.com/forums/index.php
