FIRST DETERMIN NEEDLE BAR POSITION TURN STITCH REGULATOR TO LARGEST STITCH, THEN TURN HAND WHEEL TIL' NEEDLE IS ABOUT TO ENTER NEEDLE PLATE.
AT THIS POINT THE FEED DOGS SHOULD BE JUST AT OR JUST UNDER PLATE. IF SO NEEDLE BAR IS, IN CORRECT POSITION,AND TIMING WILL BE SET AT THE HOOK.
TO SET TIME REMOVE NEEDLE PLATE TURN HAND WHEEL SO NEEDLE IS IN LOWEST POSITION. USING A SMALL RULE RAISE NEEDLE BAR 3/32 OF AN INCH ( OR 3 MM FOR A METRIC RULE) .HOOK POINT SHOULD BE IN CENTER OF NEEDLES WIDTH. LOOSEN THE 2 SHAFT SCREWS
SLIGHTLY,TURN HOOK TIL CENTER OF NEEDLE. TIGHTEN SCREWS. IF NEEDLE BAR IS OUT OF TIME. BRING HOOK TO CENTER OF NEEDLE AND LOOSEN SCREW IN LEFT COVER. RAISE OR LOWER NEEDLE BAR TO SET 3/32OF AN INCH. THE 3/32 MUST BE VERY VERY CLOSE.

SOURCE: Bobbin problems
Any time you have looping on the bottom, it is almost always related to the upper tension and not anything in the bobbin area.
A good way to troubleshoot this is to turn the machine off, blow out the upper tension disk assemblies with canned air, (the machine needs to be off because most canned air uses butane as a propellant. Butane + electricity = bad;) replace your needle, and rethread your machine. Once you've threaded it to the point where you're about to put the thread through the needle, "floss" the thread forward and backward to ensure that the thread seats correctly into the tension assemblies.
Set your tension to around 4.5 for most applications, and drop your presser foot. Give the thread a gentle tug to see if the tensions have engaged the thread, then thread the needle.
If doing this does not address the problem, you probably need to have your tensions professionally calibrated. This is also true if the needle is in fact hitting something in the bobbin area. This is usually caused by the machine's timing being out of alignment, which is not something that can be fixed at home.

I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.

you may have the wrong size bobbins. Most likely you have the wrong needles they are not long enough. Check your manual for the correct size.
