The error message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so.......
Remove needleplate and bobbin case.
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels.
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits.
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins.
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too.

Probably the belt tension needs adjusting, it is slipping like a car fanbelt and needs the same relative "give" when correctly tightened.
Remove the side cover where the handwheel is and loosen the motor fixing to adjust and increase the tension on the belt ....needs some slack, if you can move the belt 10mm with light pressure then it will be fine NOT TOO TIGHT or you will overload the motor. NOTE: If the side panel is not easily removed, ie 2 piece casing split in the middle, take it to a service centre or risk breaking the casing trying to get in....if it is more than a few years since last service, let someone do it all and get a sweet machine back, with no risk for not a whole lot of time or money

Testimonial: "Thanks! I think I'll zip it in to the service center."
Whenever I've had an issue with threads breaking, it's usually the tension or it's not threaded right. You probably have the first thread lapping over one of the bottom threads it shouldn't be lapped over. I would suggest you put all of your tensions back at factory level, pull out all the threads and rethread the whole thing. Thread the two bottom ones first without moving the handwheel. (Make sure the handwheel has the two top needle in the up position. When you thread this machine, you must not have to turn the handwheel. If you do, you change something.) Then thread the top needles. After that hold all four threads and make a string. Test on the same type of fabric as what you're working with. Adjust tension as needed. HTH
