Question about Consew Sewing Machines
Top thread keeps snapping ,adjusted tension but still snaps when trying to sew
Sometimes the problem can be the thread itself. I bought some cotton thread that would break at the slightest pull. Try using polyester or even quilting thread. It might make the difference.

Top thread snapping. Do you have an idea of there it is breaking?
First I would check the needle throat plate and needle. If you have stab marks on your needle plate, examine it closely for a crack. (get out the magnifying glass or jewelers loop) I recently fixed a problem I had with an old singer that kept breaking the top thread by replacing the needle plate. The old needle plate was so damaged it had actually made a knife edge which consistently cut the thread right at that location.
Change your needle and make sure it is the proper size for your thread. Too narrow of an eye can shred the thread causing it to break.
Next, check anything along your threading process that could be catching or snagging the thread. A worn or chipped thread guide can be a real problem.
Also make sure your thread hasn't dropped down below your thread cones and wrapped around the thread spindle. This would cause extra tension that might not be readily apparent.
