Question about Brother XL3750 Mechanical Sewing Machine
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.

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.

SOURCE: can't select stitches 11-21
To select stitches 11-21 you position the stitch length dial on the "SS" setting , and the pattern selecting dial on the desired stitch number.

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.

it is easy to switch the stich modes
there are two wheels on the side on the mchine
one in for manualy stiching *the big one)
and the little one changes the stitch
you have to look at the LCD screen to make sure the numbers correspond
