Make sure the chain stitch thread is threaded exactly as it should be, make doubly sure the thread comes off the bobbin vertically and runs through all eyes smoothly. Any faults in the threading causes extra tension at the needle despite what the tension is set on.
If this is not the cause then the needle depth and the looper timing needs checking.

You need to do a tension assembly test.
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt;
font-family:"Times New Roman";}
Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread
through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.

Welcome to FixYa!
Loose bottom stitches come from the top, not the bottom. Seems weird, but that's the way sewing machines work.
The dial tension should be set at the mid range and make absolutely sure that you have the machine threaded correctly. Both things will cause a sloppy bottom stitch.
If you find my solution helpful, I'd appreciate a FixYa rating....

Possibly you have the bobbin in upside down and its turning the wrong way. Read manual. If you have done everything the manual says then it must be a mechanical issue such as the small thread take up spring or maybe the tensioner discs are dirty. Timing slightly off or there is a burr on the hook that catches the thread. Have a tech look at it.
