SOURCE: unable to adjust tension,
Sounds like the bobbin thread is not inside the tension on the bobbin case. This normally happens when the bobbin is upside down. Insert the bobbin and pull on the thread.The bobbin should turn counter clockwise.

1 - Flat side of the needle is facing the back of the machine.
2 - Threaded machine with the presser foot up - always.
3 - Bobbin thread is feeding from the spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.
Lower and raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.
If this does not pull the bobbin thread up, the timing may need adjusting.
There is a graphic for doing this as sewusa.com or take it into the dealer for service.

What kind of thread are you trying to use? Is it a decent fresh thread? If, it is old, throw it out and buy some fresh quality thread. Usually, cheap thread is the problem.
