Question about Sewing Machines
Every 5 or so inches the thread keeps bursting
Make sure you are using quality thread. Old, cheap or defective thread. Also, make sure the bobbin contains the same kind of thread.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks
Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

I would try this -
Make sure you are not using quilting thread for hand stitching.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up.
If the machine is stitching seams without a problem and the breakage happens with thicker fabrics, it could be the presser foot is not down below where it is closing the tension to the setting of choice.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens. When the presser foot is down, the tension control closes to the setting you have chosen.
If this continues, call the dealer/tech and tell them the problem you are having.

SOURCE: I've cleaned, oiled, bought new
clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
also clean in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
also check for burrs on the needle plate or on the bobbin & case
it could also be out of time

With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

it's a problem with the thread take up lever, either put a small
piece of tape on the take up lever or take a pair of pliers and
carefully place a cloth over the take up lever and close the take up
lever a little but don't damage the take up lever
