SOURCE: machine will not stitch
It is either a top or bottom tension problem. Top tension speaks for itself. Most folks do not know that there is the facility on the bobbin case to alter the bottom tension. Your user manual will tell you how to do this. It is very difficult to describe how to do it you need diagrams or to be shown

SOURCE: Loose stitch
Welcome to FixYa. I am the sewing machine expert that chose your issue to solve.
When everything seems to be working fine and an occasional stitch is loose.....now get ready.......here it is.......the needle!
It seems impossible, but the needle is the most neglected part of the machine. The one you are using could be slightly bent or have a slight burr that you won't see with the naked eye. Also, needles, especially in an embroidery machine (which work their buns off), are only good for about 8 hours of cumulative use. I would say that an embroidery needle should be retired after 3 or 4. They get dull like a razor blade which can cause enough drag to create a timing issue that's barely perceptible.

There are really only two things that can cause bottom (note: remember that problems with the bottom thread, almost always comes from the top and not the bobbin. Bobbins rarely need tension adjustments). These two things are:
So try it and see if that helps.

check the thread tension
check the needle to make sure it's the right one for the thread
to check the needle to if it's work with the thread
here's how to check
cut a 8 inch piece of the thread your going to use for the project, take the needle your going to use out of the machine or package, & insert the 6-8 inch thread into the eye of needle
& lift on side of the thread up to a 45 degree angle & if needle is the right size needle for the thread, it will side down the thread easily,,but if it hangs up you need a needle 1 size larger
