If the stitching is loose on the bottom, it is not the bobbin that needs adjusting.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will be eliminated.
Check your manual to be sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly.

Have you removed the bobbin holder and then put it back in lining up the little red markings on the right hand side? If the case has moved slightly then it will keep jamming and the bobbin thread won't clear to form a stitch. The case is held in place by a magnet and a stopper but it will dislodge if you have a bad thread jam, then it keeps happening even if you have removed all the thread because its not in position.

When you take out the bobbin case, carefully inspect it for any damage and burrs in the black plastic, if there are any then file them carefully out with a nail file or fine sandpaper, a burr will keep catching thread too. Or you may actually need to replace the bobbin holder if it has been pierced by the needle badly, they are about $35 or so.
You may also want to get it serviced. On my 6500 during its last service the technician added a little piece that is a Janome "after sale replacement" part. It is slightly longer than the standard part, and is a little metal bit on the left hand side of the rotary hook area which is holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a major jam up since this was fitted so you may want to get this fitted on yours too.

here are my suggestions
1. when your sewing check to see if the thread is coming off the thead take up lever,, I've had this to happen to me & it can jam a sewing machine up
2. it's possible that the bobbin case is worn & needs to be replaced
3.also check your top tension
4. try rethreading the machine top thread & bobbin

Oh wow. That's definitely not good. Well you'll need to replace the bobbin case, and needle plate. Even the slightest burr can cause havoc. you could try smoothing down burrs with some fine sand paper but you'll need to replace the case eventually if you can't get this problem identified and fixed.
Next look for a build up or stray threads under and around the needle plate/bobbin area. Make absolutely certain you have the right needles for your machine.
