If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

If you threaded the machine with the presser foot lever raised and the stitching is still loose, the tension control may need a new spring or the entire control may need to be replaced.
Berninas tend to be the only brand that hold their value and it would be worth the expense to take it to an authorized Bernina dealer for service and repair.

SOURCE: My bobbin thread keeps looping
Have you been using new bobbins? I purchased what I thought was the same size bobbin I had been using for my cs6000i, they differed in size only very, very slightly . For the life of me I couldn't figure out why I was having such trouble with my bottom thread. Upon placing one old bobbin (the correct size) beside one of the new ones I realized the difference. Make sure they are part code: SA156.
If this isn't the problem you could always adjust the tension in the bobbin casing itself with a screwdriver; the correct screw usually has a bit of paint on top of it so it's easy to locate. However, I would do that as a last resort, I've only had to tighten the bobbin casing when using elastic thread.
I hope this helps!

this is a known issue with the pfaff.....i have just bought the machine and it has thread uptake issues...thread tension issues and it comes unthreaded by itself often...leaving globs of thread on the bottom stuck in the feed dogs and under the throat plate.....then the stitches are not properly balanced because the tension gets too loose on the bobbin thread....very disappointed to find out it is a known issue with all the viking husqvarna made machines...which are pfaff, janome and viking.....sux.
