SOURCE: looping underneath
I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

try to rethread the machine all the way back to the spool of thread and check the top and bottom tensions on scrap of same fabric

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.
