You do not say what model you have. Check this site out, if you need a manual.
What you need to do is to give it a good cleaning.
MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE SCREWS WITH THE PARTS TAKEN OFF AND MAKE NOTE OF HOW YOU TAKE THING APART SO YOU CAN GET IT BACK TOGETHER
If this is the old metal machine, (I love them) remove the screws and plate on the top, (set this aside)
remove screw and part from the left side of machine, (set aside)
remove the needle (note how needle comes out, flat side in the back)
remove the needle plate
You are now able to see most of the inner workings of the machine
Using a can of air (do not put too close to machine parts) dust all the open parts. Can also use old fime paint brushes to get into dmall areas
now using ONLY sewing machine oil, TURN the hand wheel by hand, put a drop of oil on parts that go in and out of each other, rub over each other (on top, over the needle area and in the bobbin area, (IN bobbin area you can use a q-tip with oil to rub the area)
If turning the hand wheel by hand to oil moved freely, you can plug in machine and run machine to get the oil in all the parts (this will lubricate the parts you just oiled.
Put machine back together,
Use the air agsin to dust between the tension disks.
When winding the bobbin, make sure it winds even up and down.
thread machine and try
MAKE SURE YOUR BOBBIN THREAD AND TOP THREAD ARE PULLED TO THE BACK BEFORE SEWING AND HOLD THE THREADS FOR THE FIRST FEW SITCHES, IF NOT THE MACHINE WILL PULL THE THREADS AND YOU WILL GET BREAKAGE

Testimonial: "Thank you for your advise. I know the machine needed oiled. The thread still breaks, but now it will sew a little longer before the thread breaks."
maybe it sounds like the feed dog is out of alignment, and the needle hits when it travels up and down breaking the needle
