Check the upper threading and make sure it is threaded correctly. When you pull on the thread before it goes through the needle does it give a bit or does it break? If it is breaking when you pull then the tension is way too tight or it is threaded incorrectly. Make sure it isn't looped around some guide along the line too.
For the bobbin thread... when it is in the bobbin case outside of the machine dangle it by the thread. It should hang there until you flick your wrist a bit, which should cause some thread to release and drop the bobbin down towards the floor a bit. (If it just pulls out right to the floor it is too loose). Most bobbin tension is tightened by a small screw on the bobbin case near where the thread comes though. Breaking thread would not be from the bobbin thread being too loose. Too loose would cause looping on top side of the stitch not breakage.
Make sure the bobbin is in correctly. You should feel and hear a slight "click" when the bobbin goes in correctly.

SOURCE: I received singer sewing machine
Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.
I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.
(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)
I hope this helps.

It could be the bobbin tension, as Hans Pearson suggests.
It could be that you have forgotten to lower the pressure foot, or are sewing something so thick that the machine does not tension the needle thread.
The machine could be mis-timed. If it jammed and broke needles, the timing may have slipped. If this is the case, then you may need to have the machine repaired. there are instructions on the internet for how to re-time simple mechanical sewing machines, and adjusting the timing of the thread hook to the needle is not difficult. If you sew you have the required hand-eye coordination and attention to detail for the job, but it requires some mechanical skill to remove all the covers and then to reassemble the machine and a parts or assembly diagram is helpful.
