Would try changing to 80 needles and loosening top tension slightly(no more than a 1/4 turn at top most tension). Sounds like on a trim it is pulling the thread from the eye of the needle? Could also be a check spring wound to tight. Can back off Check spring 1/16 or so to see if that helps as well.

Adjust your thread tension.When you pull down on the thread, the check spring should come down to the stop before the tension discs move. If the wheels move before the stop, loosen the check spring about 1/16 of a turn and try again. May take some tension adjustment as well, but the goal is to get the check spring to touch the stop before the discs turn. Should clear up the coming out the eye of the needle before the knot is formed.
