Question about Brother XL3750 Mechanical Sewing Machine
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:
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:
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.

Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

Most likely the needle is in backwards. Weird I know, I have no idea why but if the needle is in wrong, it either hits the bobbin and breaks or won't grab the thread at all. Good luck.

make sure that when you insert the thread *top hole bottom to top* that you turn the bobbin itself until you hear a click *that is the spring sliding into the ****.
