If the upper thread continuously breaks, most likely the machine is threaded incorrectly. Most brand machines thread similarly, so even if you are unable to locate a manual, a threading diagram from a similar model may be helpful:

Be sure to use only good quality thread--no bargain bin threads or old thread from grandma's sewing box.
Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Set the upper tension to midway (the standard tension setting) and retest your machine.
If it continues to break, check that the thread is not wrapped around a guide or the spool pin. Sometimes the thread will catch on the little thread spool notch that holds the thread on the spool (if so, flip the spool over so the notch is on the top).
Those knobs on the front are most likely:
1) stitch length selector
2) stitch width selector
3) perhaps a stitch pattern selector
4) the tension dial (very left above the needle) or on the very top left, and
there is also a reverse selector that is sometimes part of the stitch length knob
sometimes there may be a feed dog control usually located at the very bottom right of the machine (dropped feed dog is used for darning or free motion quilting)
