Question about Sewing Machines
It's possible that the gear or cam that make the zig zag stitch is
worn or broken or loose, there's no way to know for sure with out
having a sewing machine shop look at the machine.
you mentioned the needle, when sewing on cotton you need one
kind of needle and for knits you need a different needle, so
according to what kind of fabric that tell what kind of needle has to
be used for the stitches to come out right.
also check the top tenison--on a scrap fabric,,try to tighten the top
tension and see if the helps stop the thread loops on the underside.

Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:
Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.
If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.
Post an update and we'll get this right.

I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.
