Have a look at this website.
If they do not have the manual you want email them and they will help.
The looping problem is the bottom tension is to slack, on the same website look at the repair section and it explains how to adjust the bobbin tension.

I need elp with tension on singer cg550


You didn't explain the symptoms. Is the thread bunching, looping, knotting under the fabric? Is the bobbin thread rising to the top of the fabric?

If it is bunching under the fabric, it is probably what is called thread nesting or bird nesting. There are several fixes, sometimes more than one fix is required to resolve the issue.

Be sure to clean under the needle plate, around the bobbin, and the feed dogs. If the machine has instructions for oiling, follow the directions using a fresh, good quality sewing machine oil and apply only 1-2 drops each spot.

Install a brand new needle. Make sure you are using a needle compatible with the thread and fabric being used. All About Needles
Best practice is to use the same thread in both the upper and bobbin. Also, avoid old or bargain bin thread. Spend an extra couple of dollars to reduce frustration and increase success with your machine. If you wish, you may use two different colors of thread to test so you can easily determine what is happening with the tension.

Remove the thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--the thread needs to be seated firmly in the tension disk. Verify that the correct thread path is followed (consult the owner's manual).

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low numbers (this is the factory standard and is a good place to start, but every machine is different and may need adjustment).

Confirm that the bobbin is installed in the bobbin case (turning the correct direction) and that the bobbin case is threaded properly.

Before beginning to stitch, hand rotate the handwheel one rotation and pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric. Then, gently hold the thread tails in the left hand and slowly begin to stitch.

Test.

If thread is bunching, looping under the fabric, the upper tension is too loose. Tighten it and retest. On most machines, the lower the tension number, the looser the tension.

If the bobbin thread is rising to the top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight. Loosen the upper tension and retest.

Keep adjusting and testing until it is where you want it. Generally, tension is correct when both threads (upper & bobbin) meet in the middle of the fabric. FWIW, tension is static and should be tested and readjusted every time a new project is begun. The needle, thread, and fabric will affect the tension, so it is important to get comfortable adjusting the tension.

Also found the following reviews. Appears that some users have had tension issues with their CG550.

I have a singer 500/550 .I'm trying too sew a straight stitch ,but I'm having trouble with the tension. What's the best setting? And i can't sew with needle in the middle position. Why


500/550? wow, that an old one. have you check your timing? or the bevel gears?
what type of problems are you having with the sewing. is the thread knotting up on the back side of the fabric? is the thread just breaking? or is it just missing stitches? does the needle hit the bobbin case?
I have a 600 series and I found that if i put the tension around 2 or 3 it sews the best.
too tight the tread breaks, too lose the thread knots up on the back.
I had to change out the bevel gears and have the machine re-time to stop the miss-stitching.
also may want to check your bobbin tension.

What should the tension be on for this machine?


Most of the time if the bobbin thread is coming through on top it means that the bobbin thread is too loose and/or the top thread is too tight and is pulling the thread too much. check and make sure that there isn't anything in the top tensioner that could be increasing the tension like lint. Good luck.

Have a CG 500......the stitches pucker.. I have adjusted .the tension..but the only way to prevent this is to put the tension on 0............then this does not make good stitch.HELP


Try rethreading the top thread thru the tensioner. Make sure the presser foot is in the up position during threading, and as you go thru the tensioner you may need to pull the thread back and forth lightly to help it settle in the tension discs.

Also check the type of bobbin being used. Drop in bobbin machines need bobbins with rounded sides (class 66).

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

Singer 221-1 stitching is good on bottom but not on top


pucker is caused by too loose or, to tight adjustment of: the thread tensioners both the bobbin tensioner and, the needle tensioner need to be adjusted: to adjust the needle tensioner turn the side knob clockwise is tighter counterclockwise loosens; the bobbin tensioner is a tiny screw on the bobbin holder adjust both tensioners until your stich loops' both top and, bottom are tight but, the machine does not break the thread

I have a singer cg 550 sewing machine and I am not sure which slot to put the bobbin thread in first


If you put the bobbin in the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction, the thread should just fall into a slot and gently tug on the thread and it will slide through the tensions. Lay it across the bobbin case and then pick up the thread with the needle.
