Question about Janome 1600P-DB Mechanical Sewing Machine
First Zenqi, that you are not telling the appropriate size needle. Or the type of needle. The first is the "TOPSTITCH" needle is the best for both piecing and quilting. The Topstitch needle has the best GROVE, EYE and BEVELING on both sides of the eye. To use the Superior Thread Titanium Coated Topstitch needle is better because it stays sharp for 40-60 hours.
The size of the needle is needed for the size of the thread. The thread needs to be inside the grove so it will not touch the fabric. If it touches the fabric it will wear out the thread. For 1" of the thread it goes back and forth throught the eye of the needle over 60 times. This is why the thread would get worn out if it could touch the fabric.
Your secound paragraph is correct. The other reasons that was not asked was the type of hopping foot, and dog feet down or covered.
For all of you people go to Superiorthreads.com/education
You will learn a ton of smart information to help you.

Could be several things. First, make sure that you are using an appropriate size needle, not too big, and that it is inserted with correct orientation.
Make sure that as you move the fabric, that your movements do not cause the needle to bend as it penetrates the fabric. If the fabric is pulled as the needle is penetrating the fabric, it causes the needle to bend and strike the plate or be struck by the hook. Smooth, fluid motion at a moderate to high speed makes for good freemotion sewing.
If you still break needles, the hook may be too close to the needle; an adjustment to be made by a technician.
