Broken Singer Merritt 9612 tension dial

I have a Singer Merritt 9612. Recently the entire tension dial fell out of the front of the machine and came apart. We put it back together the best we could and the machine works, but the tension is still off, causing thread breakages and frequent thread goobers on the back of the fabric. Is there a service/repair manual out there somewhere that would help me troubleshoot this machine? I have the original instruction manual, but there is nothing in it regarding making repairs.

Hi!
There could be several reasons due to which the thread keeps bunching up underneath. 

It may be due to tangling of upper thread. Remove the thread completely from the machine, use correct size spool cap for the size of the thread spool, re-thread the machine, now remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.


You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please rate the solution as FixYa and revert for any clarification.

Thanks
Rylee

You will find the parts list most helpful, because it will show you with drawings where each part is supposed to go. Go to the Singer site, and type "parts chart" in the Search box, then select Sewing Machines and the 9 - 900 series. Scroll down; it's towards the bottom.
