SOURCE: Upper thread brakes often.
It could be your thread is old, dry and brittle, always store out of sunlight and in airtight container to avoid this. You could try putting the thread into the fridge overnight to add a bit of moisture back into it. Or buy some new thread and try again. Also, always use same thread on top as in the bobbin, don't be tempted to just use an old bobbin of thread you have already as different colours and thread top and bottom will affect stitching quality.
If you are getting loops on the underside it also sounds like top tension is not right. Check dial is on 5, and always raise the pressure foot when you are threading up so the tension is open for the thread to go into.
Then lower the pressure foot and pull on the thread below the tension - it should feel firm when you pull it. Also revisit your threading up, it is possible that the thread is catching somewhere between the spool and needle causing it to break so check with your manual carefully to see if you have missed a threading eye.
Failing all of this, go back to the shop and ask them to watch you thread up and see if they can spot the issue.

SOURCE: I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin
it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.
