Sewing machine either breaks thread or comes unthreaded every time i try to sew.

Make sure the thread coming off the spool is not wrapping around the spool spindle. Install a brand new needle. Remove ALL the thread from the machine. Clean bobbin area of any dust, lint, threads. Set upper tension to the midpoint. RAISE the presser foot and then totally re-thread the machine from beginning to end verifying the sequence is correct. Test.
Did you try adjusting the tension? sometimes that pulls on the thread and causes it to unthread. Is your bobbin thread the same type as the top thread? Two different thread types will cause problems. Also, some of the cheaper thread they sell at JoAnn's and other stores are not supposed to be used on machines, only hand sewing. Is your thread specifically made for machine sewing?
needle is in backwards
tension to tight
needle bent or blunt
thread to coarse for size of needle
needle too long for machine
burr on needle
tension discs worn so that thread works in grove
neele too fine for size of thread and fabric
lint or dirt around bobbin case holder
irregular sewing speed AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS:
threads not properly pulled back under pressure foot when starting to sew
This means, Have enough of the upper and lower thread pulled to the back and hold for the first 2-3 stiches,
Do this every time and it will become second nature and you will do it automatically
Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.
if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.
