Question about Euro-Pro Fast and Easy 420 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I use the backstitch the thread from the bobbin tends to loop on the fabric as if the tension is off.

This is a very common problem with really lightweight fabric and can often be cured (if doing straight stitching) by using a straight stitch needle plate and foot. The wider needle plate and foot openings on newer machines give the machine/thread a wider area to pull the fabric into the machine. By using a straight stitch plate/foot you remove the wide opening, eliminating the majority of the problem.
Also - try using a specially coated needle (Teflon or other non-stick finish). The thread feeds more smoothly through the needle and the needle more smoothly through the fabric, causing less drag into the needle plate opening.
Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to respond to this if you have further specific questions. We're always happy to help

the top seam is actually the bobbin thread. dots on the underside means that the top tension is too tight. you may have a piece of thread or something gummy caught between the upper tension disks.

make sure you have the same type of thread in both the top thread and bobbin.
Also make sure your thread tails are clear, by grasping the upper and bobbin threads, making sure they are under the foot when you start. Hold them as you sew the first few stitches so they don't get caught up in the machine.
