Increasing the top tension (and possibly decreasing the bottom tension) will cause the top thread to pull the bobbin thread up.

This likely is related to thread tension. You might increase that adjustment a bit higher than the book settings. If that does not fix the problem, here are some additional considerations?

I have several of these machines and they all have the problem you described. It would seem that the lubricant used by Viking has dried out with age and turned to something like varnish. If you can remove the back plastic cover without breaking it, then you can gently heat up the internal mechanism (hair dryer?) and oil, exercise the zig-zag linkage.
Be careful of the plastic, it is old and brittle. Sometime just turning a screw loose will break it, making reassembly difficult.
These are great old machines but sometimes you have to be satisfied with only a good straight stitch.

Try switching it off and unplugging the power socket. After 5 mins plug back in to the socket and switch it on.
If that does not fix it, its a circuit board fault.

On my machine, I use a size 18 needle with an 8 to 9 tension. Could try that. :-)

Check to see if the button perhaps is stuck in DOWN position.
A quick spray of WD40 with the nozzle in the gap will free it.

If the button is not stuck there may be a worn contact underneath the button, and a spray of WD CONTACT CLEANER in the same manner usually effective

It works best with very thick fabrics when the bottom fabric moves with the feed dogs but the top fabric doesn't, ie quilts. Also, helps when sewing slick fabrics.
