Hi, when your thread breaks or frays right before in goes through the eye of the needle:
The most common needles are size 80 and 90 universal needles, which are fine for most sewing projects. But if you are using a specialty thread, you need to use a needle that is designed to work with that particular thread. For example, top stitching needles have a larger eye than a universal needle, because top stitching thread is thicker than sewing thread. The same is true for metallic thread - needles made for metallic thread an eye designed to allow the thread to pass thru without fraying. Further, if you using fine thread, you need a small needle.
FYI - unfortunately, thread sizes do not correspond directly with needle sizes. Small needle numbers indicate a needle with a small eye. But the smaller the thread size, the larger the thread. For example, size 50 thread is very fine and would usually be used with a size 70 needle. Size 30 thread is fairly thick and would probably be used with a size 90 top stitch needle.
Hope this helps, and remember, you should always change your needle after about 10 hours of sewing, no matter what size needle you are using. If you have more questions, please post again. Thanks, Ginny

Most likely caused by issues with your top tension if it is showing on the underside of the fabric, top thread is not being tensioned fully or at all. Check the tension dial is set to five and that the top thread is between the tension discs and under tension.
Best way is to lower the pressure foot as this engages the top tension. Then pull the thread from below the tension device, down near the needle bar, it should feel firm to you.
If not, then check top threading again, rethread and pull thread into the tension device, and test again. If there is some tension there, then you could try turning the top tension dial up to a higher number a little to see if this helps with the stitching.
Failing that, take it for a service, tension device is probably faulty.
