Hi Halina,
I definitely recommend using Chimera 1.7 (daily build) since the newer tool is a lot better, and you can also use a web service to run Modeller. The Chimera 1.6 Model Loops requires Modeller installed on your own computer.  

Daily build download:

Description of Model/Refine Loops tool in Chimera 1.7:

If you still have a problem, however, as Eric mentioned please use "Help... Report a Bug" in the Chimera menu to report it.

Your report is actually a classic case why -- I don't know what version of Chimera you are using and therefore don't know if you are referring to the 1.6.2 "Model Loops" tool or the 1.7 "Model/Refine Loops" tool (they are considerably different)!  I will open a ticket in the Chimera bug database for your report and we can work from there.
