SOURCE: bobbin tension
This is an issue of your upper thread tension, so take a look at this generic tension solution
If you are in a pickle with your bobbin case, check top tension and bobbin case are free of lint, reset the top tension to 4, and adjust the bobbin tension to suit......some more detail on how to do that, is here

SOURCE: bernette 90E
have a Bernette 90e and it is driving me mad! I could be sewing for weeks and then for no apparent reason, while sewing, the bobbin housing pulls right out of position and jams. I have, by luck only I must add, been able to put it back into the right position but it takes me days!. I do not no what to do and am about to chuck the whole machine. please help me!!

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....

SOURCE: thread or bobbin tension
Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.
Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.
