Juki HZL-E61: cannot get tension right on straight stitch
Loops on the bottom of the fabric direct the problem to the top thread. Rethread again and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Lift the foot, because this is what opens the discs.

When changing the position of the fabric (turning a corner or sewing a curved seam, for example), lower the needle into the fabric to prevent the stitch from malformation and tangling with the bobbin thread.
Start sewing by holding onto the thread ends and hand walking the needle into the fabric for one or two stitches.
If this problem continues, the timing may need to be adjusted and this does require a trip to the shop for proper service.
