I did not have a Serger, all I have is an old sewing maching but appeared to thread from the left slot and any machine that I have had always threaded from the right side. Anyway, I found a neighbor who was able to figure it out. I would love to get a directional book for the machine if that was possible. The machine is a Brother Model No. VX581.

I would contact Brother, they have an outstanding service department. But if the thread is only around the hand wheel, try pulling it outward to see if you can access the thread that way. Many hand wheels pop out, to disengage the needle mechanism so you can wind a bobbin.
In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?
You really need a replacement manual and Brother is excellent about providing them. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/ if your machine was sold in the U.S. If not, you'll need to contact Brother International.
Loose thread and jams usually mean the tension needs adjusting. If the loose threads are on the underside of the fabric, it means that the tension on the top thread is too loose. Be sure to have the pressure foot down when you adjust the tension and only move the dial a tiny bit at a time. Also, when you begin sewing, hold the top and bobbin threads securely in your left hand for the first few stitches. That bit of tautness helps prevent 'birds nests'.
This is why I think sewing machines should be bought from a local dealer who knows 98% of the time this is operator error and will take the time to show the customer the proper way to thread the machine. The other 2% of the time they could fix it or exchange for the customer. The problem is in the threading of the top thread, refer to the manual. No one on the phone or in an email can guide one to thread a machine. Diagram in the book is a poor second to hands on instructions given by most independent sewing machine dealers
