Question about Brother XL3750 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

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 the hole and then trying to grab it with tweezers. It takes so much time. what am I doing wrong?

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:
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.

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.

SOURCE: Top & bobbin thread will not sew

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 ****.

Keep the thread from collecting on the arm that holds the bobbin case in? My Brother LB-6800 sews quilts, and embroiders great until yesterday, The thread wraps around this small arm every time now.


Try taking the bobbin case out and re-insert. It sounds like the case that holds the bobbin is not inserted correctly. You might also try checking to be sure that the needle is inserted properly. Sometimes the needle gets loose and drops down too low. unscrew, push the needle up as far as it will go, then tighten the screw.

Thread in bobbin keeps getting caught. I'm doing something wrong putting it in.


Hello

The bobbin case is not properly installed.

Remove the bobbin case and make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the spool in a clock wise direction and through the guide on the side of the bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's highest position and this will move the shuttle to it's proper position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case, with the arm on the case pointing toward the ceiling and slip into the shuttle.

Bend your head down and you will see the shuttle has a slot for the arm to fit into.

Once you get the feel for this you will not have to bend down for a bird's eye view!

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up. Make sure the threading sequence is correct and the thread has not slipped out of the take up lever.

Hold onto the top thead end and lower then raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Pull both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You should now be able to sew without any issues.

You can get a manual from Brother (free download). Refer to the maintenance section for cleaning and removal of the shuttle parts for lubrication, if required for the model you are using.

Bobbin thread won't engage.


The bobbin case is not in the shuttle.

Raise the needle to it's highest position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and hold it open as you insert the case into the shuttle; arm on the case pointing up. You may have to turn a bit to the left or right - it will click when in place.

Brother 8500D sewing/emb machine - upper thread stops feeding


If the thread is hanging up at the spool - this could be the way it was manufactured, a nick in the spool end or the thread is unwinding too fast, puddling and wrapping around the spool pin.

Keep the bobbin case and surrounding area clean and free of thread tangles and snips. Thread tangles in this area can cause the machine to stop.

When the presser foot is down on any sewing machine, the tension closes and you cannot manually pull the thread through.

Sulky and C & C black tends to fray more than other brands of thread.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to be serviced by a professional.

How to thread bicor vx 1005 sewing machine?


Most older machines start the thread from the spool on a spool holder then the thread goes through a tension dial, on to another tension holder inside the case. Then make sure the thread is going through a lever that goes up and down with the needle, through a thread holder near the needle.

Place thread spool on the spool pin at back right top of machine. From there, thread through 1) rear thread guide (little hook), 2) front thread guide (front hook), 3) down and up through the thread tension dial from right to left so that thread picks up the thread spring check (the little spring on the left of the tension dial). 4) Through the thread take-up-lever, from right to left (the little lever that goes up and down). 5) Through the thread guard and guides (one on the front, one on the needle arm). 6) Through the needle, front to back.
