Your bobbin is probably too loose. When you set a new bobbin, stop every now and then and try with your fingers nail if it's nice and tight enough. Not extremely tight, but tight, not loose and moves easily when you set your finger between the threads.
With most fabrics (99%) the plate is fine at the the top position, just with very thick and "fragile" (satins etc) you might need to adjust it.
Settings: Tightest tension for the thinnest materials, more loose for the thicker ones, better have a test piece, it rarely goes under 5 anyway.

these are the best setting i have found for sewing through thick materials, specifically leather and vinyl:
top tension- between 8 and 9 bottom tension- between 4 and 5 stitch length between 3 and 4 stitch type: 2
that is just what works best for me, i have a brother xl-2600i
