The handwheel may have a pull out/push in action to disengage/engage the clutch, or it may automatically disengage when the bobbin winder is moved to the right for winding........hold a short tail of thread to get it started and you should be away.
Move the winder to the left for sewing, or push handwheel in, according to the mechanism.

Welcome to FixYa!
Loose bottom stitches come from the top, not the bottom. Seems weird, but that's the way sewing machines work.
The dial tension should be set at the mid range and make absolutely sure that you have the machine threaded correctly. Both things will cause a sloppy bottom stitch.
If you find my solution helpful, I'd appreciate a FixYa rating....

I don't know if this is the right answer for any of you, but thought I'd put my 2 cents worth in. Often this can be the bobbin in backwards. It needs to unwind a certain way depending on the machine. I've heard a phrase for this: Mind your p's and q's which means some wind off to the right like a q, others to the left like a p. Mine has to unwind one way then be slipped backwards into a little slot or it does that loose bottom thread looping and bunching someone here mentioned. It seems everytime I get that problem I rethread the top thread 100 times before it clicks again and I remember it could be the bobbin thread. Either your manual will tell you the correct way, or you could experiment and try one or the other. Once you figure out whether you're a p or a q, mark it on your machien somewhere to remind yourself.
Good Luck and Happy Sewing!

Loops on the bottom of the fabric direct the problem to the top thread. Rethread again and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Lift the foot, because this is what opens the discs. When sewing and the foot is down, the discs should be closed and thus giving the upper thread the tension it needs.

The bobbin thread tension
has already been adjusted at the factory for general use. For most
applications, no adjustment is needed.
When sewing with then
thread on thin fabrics, the thread tension may not be adjusted adequately with
the upper tension control dial. Therefore, the thread tension must be
adjusted according to the procedure described below.
If bobbin tension is too
loose and locks appear on the surface of the fabric, decrease the thread tension
by turning the dial to a lower number.
If the result is still
not satisfactory, then adjust the bobbin thread tension.
Increase the tension in the bobbin by turning the screw with a small screwdriver in a clockwise direction. However, do not turn the screw more than one full turn.
