It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

Sounds like the needle alignment is out.
This website has some instructions on how to properly set it up and also has manuals too.

Sounds like the bobbin case tension is not properly adjusted. Try turnibg the adjusting screw about 1/2 to a full turn clockwise and see if it is better.
