A sewing machine should catch and tie the threads at any thread tension. If it's not tying and you're sure it's threaded correctly then it's out of time.
Timing a sewing machine is not difficult, but the point where you adjust the timing is often not obvious. I don't know what kind of machine you have so I can't tell you just where to set the timing, but you'll find the point in the lower section of the machine, there will generally be a screw or two that, being loosened, will allow the lower section of the machine (where the bobbin is) to turn while the upper section stays still.
You want to watch the needle and the tying mechanism: as the needle starts to come up the top thread becomes slack and the hook on the shuttle carrier (the piece that either turns back and forth or goes round and round, down below) catches the slack top thread and pulls it around the shuttle. If the hook is too early in its motion it can't catch the top thread, if it's late then the top thread is gone before the shuttle can catch it.
Timing the machine is simply a matter of determining if the hook is early in trying to catch the top thread or late. Turn the machine by the handwheel, watch the interaction of the needle and hook, adjust the timing if necessary and try it again.
If you don't see where to time the machine the next best thing is to take it to someone who knows, pay them, and watch where they're making the adjustment.
Good luck with it,

This might sound too basic for you but check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.
