SOURCE: Bobbin issues
Take out your bobbin case... there should be a small screw fixture on the side of the case...turn screw anti clockwise until you get the correct tension ... To test the bobbin thread tension...Remove the bobbin case keeping bobbin attached and hold it by suspending it by the thread...**** it once or twice, if the tension is correct the thread will unwind by about an inch or two. If it does not unwind at all...tension is too tight. If the tension is too loose it will drop too much. Goog Luck

Unless you are going to hand wind a heavier thread on the bobbin, you do not need to make any adjustment to the bobbin tension.
There is a screw on the side of the bobbin case and this is where you adjust the tension.

If your stitching is loopy, it is not the bobbin.
Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up. This will insure proper tension when the top thread and bobbin thread combine to make a stitch.

"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
