SOURCE: tention guide
It is normal for the tension to be relaxed when the presser foot is raised, so , is there any tension when the presser foot is down, even if only a little more ?
Check there is no lint built up between the tension plates as this is common, and will cause the tension to be affected as you describe.
Unusual but possible is that the lever mechanism which relaxes the tension from the presser foot to the tension dials is seized or "gummed up" with lint and old oil.........when was your last full service done ? If it was more then 2 or 3 years, just like a motor car, regular servicing will pay dividends in enhanced performance and longer life.

For a brand new machine, your dealer should help you get it set up properly and give you lessons. Every machine is slightly different. You may just have something as simply as an ill-fitted bobbin case or wrong needle inserted. If it is making a "banging" noise, don't force it to sew. Walk through your instruction manual step-by-step for threading and call your dealer for more help.

The top tension dial is usually standard set on #3. The rest have nothing to do with tensions but make sure that your foot that you put the fabric under is up before you start threading the top

On the bobbin case is a screw. Mark the case with a tiny dab of nail polish and the edge of the screw. This will tell you where you began.
Turn the screw: right to tighten and left to loosen.
This is an adjustment that is usually not needed unless you are changing the weight of the thread being used on the bobbin.
