Question about Sewing Machines
This sounds like a problem with your tension adjustment. The lower adjustment (for the bobbin) and the upper have to work together or you will get loops that can get tangled underneath. they can wrap around your needle if left to build up and snap the needle. My sewing machine has a screw that can be loosened or tightened to correct this underneath, where the bobbin is. Look for the manual online and see if this is the problem. Hope this helps.

Be sure to have the right needle for the right material! that sounds maybe a bit like I am taking you for a ride! but not! I sew professionally and have a box full of needles! Most of the needles you buy in the shop have a designation (jeans, jersey etc! ) afterwards there is something like 70, 80, 90 up till 100!
70 - very fine fabrics, silks and sheers
80 - fine fabrics, thin cottons
90 - average and 'normal' fabrics
100 and more - thick fabrics, curtains etc!
If your problem persist, you may need to take your machine for servicing! how old is it? and what brand? yours,

I could be that the new needle has not been pushed in far enough.
Try loosening the fixing and try pushing the needle further in.

That's ok, needles get bent all the time and sometimes broken too. Just give it a new needle (look on the shaft at the top of the needle, you should see a screw to loosen for removing the needle). Note that the needle is made with a flat side on the shank to locate it properly, watch how the bent one is positioned when you remove it.
