Question about Brother XL3750 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Problem with Brother XL-3750

I just purchased this machine and still can't figure out the two stitch dials. The manual is very hard to understand. Can you explain it to me? Also, even though I am using a very light material and the machine is threaded correctly, I still get weird stitches on the underside of the garment. Aaarrrrgh. I'm ready to throw the machine out the window.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This allows the thread to seat firmly and completely.

Verify the thread path is correct.

For straight stitch, set the stitch pattern selection to 2. Set the stitch length to anywhere between 1 and 4. Leave the stitch width at zero,. This determines how much space there is between each stitch. (Stitch width dial on this stitch selection causes the needle position to move left or right of the center position, so you probably want to just leave it set at the CENTER position.) THE STITCH WIDTH DIAL MOVES THE NEEDLE POSITION--SETTING IT AT 5 MOVES THE NEEDLE TO THE LEFT, SETTING IT AT ZERO MOVES THE NEEDLE TO THE RIGHT. The manual does not say what the setting is for the CENTER position, so logic says 3 is the Center needle position.

For zig-zag, set the pattern to 3, Stitch length anywhere between F and 4. Stitch width set between zero and 5.

Did you not get any training when the machine was purchased? If not, you may want to check with some sewing stores or shops about a beginning sewing class, ie JoAnn's Fabric, etc. May cost a little bit, but the information would be helpful for you. Learn how to properly use the machine instead of throwing it out the window.

In the meantime, this video may be helpful:

SOURCE: Brother vx790, my stitches are reversed ( top is on botom & bottom is on top )

It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

Check the bobbin to ensure it is installed correctly. Your bobbin is probably in incorrectly. You shouldn't have to change your tention yet but it is possible. this may sound stupid but the other culprit may be that your forgot to put the foot down. Hope this helps. Let us know. If you found that the tension adjustment did help call your local service center and ask for the in-house tech, ask them where the original # position is when it came from the manufacturer and re-adjust the top tention to that.

With my Brother 3750 sewing machine, it is hard to thread because the arm that goes up and down does not come out of the machine "case". I end up trying to almost blindly put the thread through...


Hello, Cwpetronio -

I hope I am correct in thinking your Brother sewing machine is in the XL series of sewing machines. If so . . .

I think you will find the instructive illustrations here helpful:
http://support.brother.com/g/b/faqend.aspx?prod=hf_xl3750eus&c=us_ot&lang=en&faqid=faqh00000467_000

I would think the instructions for threading the machine are in the owner's manual. If you do not have the manual, you can download on free here:
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/brother/xl3750.html

Note: The manual is in PDF format, meaning you will need Adobe Reader software (free). After you download the manual, I recommend you save it in your Documents folder using a file name you can find again easily - Brother XL-3750 Manual. You can print the manual for easy reference.

Best wishes.

I have a 15 stitch Brother and I cannot figure out how to use all the stitches. The manual is of no use. I cannot get into the other circle of stitches that are available after 8 or so.


You are not making it very easy to help you. I think you should talk to a person who sews, because I never heard of someone who cannot understand a manual. Call Brother at 1-877-276-8437.

Brother mechanical sewing machine XL-5060 - Can't select stiches


I have been provided with the solution by Brother.

If I turn the Stitch Length dial to "SS" I can select stitches from 10 onwards.

Wish they could have put that in the manual!.
