Looping on wrong (bottom) side of fabric is almost always insufficient tension of top thread.

The fabric appears to be multiple layers high density so it will take a higher than typical tension setting.

You can easily verify it is top thread looping on bottom by using a different color top thread. Using a different color top thread will also aid in setting the proper tension as you'll be able to see bottom thread eventually come to top side as you increase tension. Then reduce tension until stitch returns to center of fabric layer.

You have to split the covers to get to the bobbin winder assembly. This will void your warranty, but if it is over 3 yrs old it’s out of warranty already. Then engage bobbin winder, turn the handwheel and determine where the squeak is coming from. Use a silicone based lubricant.
