Don't tighten any belts -- I'm not sure this machine has any, anyhow. You've probably got the bobbin winder engaged, so read the manual to tell you how to switch it off again, or call Singer's help line ( -- "contact us" tab)

I believe on this machine the bobbin winder is disengaged by moving the bobbin winding pin to the left, but check the manual.

    Unless you don't want to cough up money for it to be fixed from an expert I don't have advice. Though there may be dust or something stuck in there, but you say it doesn't sound jammed, most likely it is.

    The motor runs the machine by a rubber belt, try tightening the belt...
