Question about Sewing Machines
Most likely, your tension is too tight. First thing, unthread the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. The standard initial tension setting is the midway point between high & low number, HOWEVER, that will probably need to be tweaked as machines vary.
The tension is correct when upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the thread continues to break, then there may be a snag somewhere that is catching the thread and breaking it. Also, check that the thread notch on the spool is not catching the thread. Be sure your needle is compatible with the thread, ie the thread is too thick for the needle eye.
