Hi there, Sounds like the tensioner needs to be adjusted. Or the bobbin isn't loaded correctly causing the thread to snag and pulling the needle and breaking it.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
bent bobbin--replace
thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly & that you are using the right kind of bobbin .
