Question about Sewing Machines

No, no, no. Do not adjust the bobbin. It is a top tension problem.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Loops under the fabric frequently indicate the thread is not completely seated in the top tension.

With your slide plate open, you will see 2 screws on the bobbin case. You need to adjust the one on the inside (not the one that sits at the edge of the metal strip). Do so very slightly. If you can't seem to get it adjusted, take a look and make sure there isn't any thread or lint in between the two pieces of metal that the thread feeds through. This can cause a loose tension.

If you getting loops on the bottom of your material, you need to
re-thread the top of your machine. I say this because it is very rare
when you will have to adjust the bobbin tension. But if you must,
looking straight down at the bobbin as a clock- at 6:00 is the bobbin
tension adjustment- lefty lucy, righty tighty. Hope this helps.
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correct
There is no standard tension for any machine to be set at. They start at four when they are brand new, however, after years and years the springs become compressed. You could start at four and then play around with it from there. If you are getting loops underneath the material, you are threading the machine incorrectly.
