SOURCE: Machine not sewing
Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:
Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.
If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.
Post an update and we'll get this right.

SOURCE: looping underneath
I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

Check the tension of the feed foot. Some machines have an adjustable tension for the foot pressure. If this is not the case then re-check your thread tension setting. As well clean the bobbin area of loose threads and dirt. You can adjust the bobbin thread tension on the side of the bobbin holder(small screw). From the sounds of your dilemna the bobbin tension may be the culprit. The housing does come out with either 2 screws, or clips. Try that. Wayne

Testimonial: "Played with the bobbin tension and it's working great! Thanks:) "
It is most likely because you have it on a type of stitch but did not switch the didstance that you want the zig zag to be. Just change you stitch or your distance.
