I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

Do you still have any parts off of the Riccar Galaxy 300? I need the templates for the buttonholer. I bought my machine on ebay and by the time I was figuring out how to use the buttonholer, I realized all the templates where missing. If anyone has any to buy please email me at Joytruck@gmail.com Thank you.

Oh yes. GRRRRRR is the word!!! I hope I can help.
In many cases, breaking thread is caused by the upper tension being too tight, so that's something to check.
Another thing is to change your needle. If it's at all bent it can break the thread.
Third thing is to make sure you're using new, high quality thread. Older thread breaks more easily, especially if it's been in the sun.
Finally, clean and oil the machine. A bit of lint in the bobbin area can do all kinds of havoc.
Hope this helps!!
