The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

The timing mechanism is likely off. Take off the plastic bobbin case and see if the eye of the needle, on its way up, is just below the metal hook that catch the thread. If not,open the bottom cover with a flat screwdriver, loosen the two 2 mm hex screws, push out and disengage the gears. Adj the hook position by turning left or right so that it is right above the eye of the needle when the needle is on its way up. Tighten the hexes. I also give my machine a good old job with a high grade geese on the gears and light old drop on all moving parts before I close the cover.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.

Make sure the bobbin has a 3-5 inch thread tail
Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine to slowly
Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick
Up that way
