You are sewing heavy thread in a machine designed for sewing clothing but it can be done. Use a size 18 needle or a top stitching needle(it has a larger eye). Thread the machine and adjust the tension to 8 or 9. Set the stitch length at 3 or 4. If you still get loops on the bottom, wind the thread around the bobbin winder thread guide once for more tension and then thread it normally. If you do this, lower the tension to 5, test sew and then tighten the tension until the loops go away.

I have a sewing machine model uhtj1276 i need part that i do not know what its called- metal ring with plastic piece that moves bobbin, this part is located under the bobbin on the shaft, plastic part

I'm not sure about what your explaining, If the bobbin drops into this part (plastic) it is called the bobbin carrier. If you take the carrier out and you see a metal hook going around and circles or bobbing back and forth this is called the hook. The bobbin carrier is most likely what you need. Try this web, they usually have everything:
