Question about Sewing Machines
When i sew the bottom thread sews correctly but the top one just loops onto the lower thread?
I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.
Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.
Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.
Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Your problem may be as simple as adjusting the height of the needle in its clamp. Try moving the needle up a millimeter at a time; or down a millimeter at a time.
