Sewing Machine needles breaking!

My mom was cleaning out her sewing room and gave me her Handi Quiliter and Juki TL-98E sewing machine. I got my quilt all loaded, and have quilted about 1/4 of it when the needle broke. I proceeded to put in a new needle and 5 needles later, I cant for the life of me figure out why all of a sudden the needle keeps breaking. I have read, and re-read the manual to make sure I am putting the needle in correctly and have the machine threaded right.. Does anyone know if you have to use the Juki specified needles? I have a Bernina and use the Schmetz needles with no issues.
