Question about Sewing Machines
Right I have an old Lervia Sewing Machine, OK to be honest I actually don't know anything about this. There are loads of things with number on them I don't know what it is for. After a few stitches my needle breaks I just don't know anything!!!! Please I need help :(
Needle breakage can mean that you don't have the needle inserted correctly, you have the wrong size needle for the machine, you are pulling the fabric instead of letting the machine take it on it's own. Thread coming off the needle is usually operator error... make sure you grasp both threads as you start your seam.
Also if you are certain your needle is correct for this machine... take it in for servicing by a pro... it is likely that the needle is striking something and breaking... that means it's out of time... or perhaps a bent part.

SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?
You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:
Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...
I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.
If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

The top tension is dependent not just on the tension dial, but also on the little disks that you go through to thread the machine. If it is not threaded correctly, you will get bunching underneath. Sometimes I just have to rethread the machine-- when you get to the disks- hold the thread taut and push it through the disks before going up to the arm part. Here is a threading picture I found- but it doesn't point out the disks too much. Once the machine is stitching nicely, then the tension dial can be used to flatten out the stitches.

try to rethread the machine all the way back to the spool of thread and check the top and bottom tensions on scrap of same fabric
