Firstly make sure when you thread the machine you have the sewing foot in the up position or the thread will not sit in the tension and cause this problem. Also as it is a new machine it may have a small amount of oil from transport stopping the tension discs from separating. Try sliding the folded edge of a piece of fabric with the foot up through the tension unit it may clear the oil away.

Yes they can indeed go out of time and breaking needles is the most likely cause. To solve timing problems you will need a sewing machine engineer though. The part which needs adjusting would be the area above the needle-the needlebar but it is a fiddly affair only to be attembed by someone who can repair sewing machines. It is also a fairly expensive repair as it is very time consuming. However-don't assume it is that. Firstly make sure the new needle is in correctly-the most common cause of problems is needles in wrong direction! If bobbin opens at front then the flat part of the needle faces the back. If bobbin area opens at side then the flat side of needle faces the body of the machine to the right. Check needleplate for damage so that new needle does not catch. File it smooth if you need to! Check you are using a good quality thread as cheap thread causes no end of problems. Guuterman is the best I found.

it sounds like the timing is out. are you confident the needle is fully inserted into the needle holder? if so take it back to the shop or look here for instructions on repair for stylist machines. http://www.tandtrepair.com/StylistLine.html

Time for a tune up and the timing to be reset. People tend forget that machines do need to be serviced once in a while, it will be well worth it. Just remember it is a machine, just like your car.
