For normal everyday fabric, tension should be 3-5.
If it is looping on the bottom, the problem is the threading of the machine. If it loops on the top then the problem is with the bobbin.

SOURCE: thread bunches up under fabric
Your thread tension needs adjustment.
Most likely it is the lower thread tension (not the upper thread tensioner).
When sewing very thin or very heavy material - it is required to adjust the lower tension as well.
To regulate the lower thread tension - turn the small screw on the tension spring of the bobbin case with a small screwdriver.
To increase tension - turn it clockwise SLIGHTLY.

Make sure that there is tension on the thread when you have passed it through the tension unit, by making sure the presser foot is down, and then gently pulling the thread to feel tension. If there is no tension, as seems to be the case, check the tension discs inside the unit to make sure that there is no debris stopping them from closing.

tension could be too loose. start with bobbin tension- should allow thread to pass with SLIGHT resistance. then adjust top tension at about 2-3 to start.
