How to get the back off if it. My machine stitches slower and slower. Need to find out what is wrong

Sounds like your motor is going out. Engage your bobbin winder, and make sure the needle isn't moving. Push the foot pedal all the way down and listen to the motor. It should be a steady sound. If it sounds like it's struggling, your motor is going bad. Your foot pedal can also be an issue.

Where can i get a free manual?

Not sure you can get a free one. Singer only shows a $15 one. I did find one for $9.99http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-singer-2950.aspx

My Singer 2950 buttonhol-er stitches only one side

Have you pulled down the buttonhole trigger lever at the back of the sewing area? most modern machines have one of these - when you use it with the button hole foot, you'll see the foot has a little piece that sticks out and triggers the lever to begin stitching the reverse bead and bar tack of the buttonhole.

I have a Singer 2950

Do you have the manual for this machine? It sounds like the clutch is partly disengaged for bobbin winding.

Manual can be purchased here http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals type in your model number and press 'search'.

Does the fly wheel have an inner knob ? if yes, then grip the outer wheel and turn the inner one away from you to lock. Or there may be a button or indent you push. If it is an indent, then push on the other side to reset it to normal stitching mode.

Sorry, as I can't see the manual for this actual model am flying blind but I do think it is something to do with bobbin winding. Is the bobbin spindle turning when you press the pedal too?

Bottom tension very loose, looks like a crocheted

Rethread your machine, you haven't got your thread going through the tension discs right or your thread is tangled

The top needle unthreads after just a few stiches.

Are you saying that the thread is breaking?

CAUSES of upper thread breaking

needle is in backwards
improperly threaded
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,

Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically
