Undo tthe needle to raise the needle arm ...this will allow you to get under and carefully cut away the jam....there really is no easy way, and you may have already damaged the fabric if it is in the feed teeth, so be slow and gentle.

Singer Heavy Duty 110 making whining/screeching noise.

If you cleaned and oiled according to the owner's manual, then that probably isn't the issue. Suggest consulting the owner's manual, troubleshooting section. Machine could also be out of time.

Some reviews on this machine are not great:

If you've had this machine for seven years and haven't had problems until now, it may be a good time to think about replacing it.

Machine sews fine until I use reverse and then the bottom stitching gathers up. Very annoying. I have adjusted bobbin tension and thread tension. What should I try next? Thank you.

Since you seem to have done everything possible to make it "happy", it is not likely that tension is the issue. With the problem becoming more aggravated, sounds like the feeding mechanism is not responding correctly in the reverse mode. Even refurbished machines come with a warrantty, so try that route before submitting it for an inspection by your local qualified technician.

How to fix a hook & timing issue on singer inspiration 4205?

I would over ride the auto setting and trial and error the process by manually turning the tension my self, also it has to do with the fabric too, sometimes whatever fabric is being used tends to regulate the tensioner too, good luck

Letters are Backwards

It's a tension issue. Sounds like too much bobbin thread is coming to the top of the fabric.

CE-5000 thumping sound when I sew, messy stitching

any sound out of the ordinary could mean that a part is worn or fixing to break or something is loose
it's very possible that the machine needs to be serviced

Why does my new Singer cg-500 stop working, then start for a little bit and stop again?

Probably thread wrapped around something....takeup crank, motor pully...if you can get inside to have a look great, if not, find someone who can.
