Question about Sewing Machines
You don't say what make and model but you may find a manual on www.sewusa.com, www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.sewingmanuals.com .
Check your top tension dial, turn it to zero and clean between the discs with a selvage edge of clean cotton offcut. Also take off the needle plate and check it for any burrs or damage around the needle hole that could be catching the thread. I assume it is the top thread that is breaking? Check the threading path from the thread spool, down to the needle visually to see if there is something damaged or catching the thread. Does the machine have an aerial arm, and if is, is it lifted up? Also, the thread spools themselves sometimes have a little nick in the edge where the thread can catch, so use a spool cap over it or turn it up the other way to ensure this is not happening.
Good machine maintenance tips, troubleshooting and threading diagrams are at www.sewing.about.com.
Hope this helps a little.
