My cxl will not stay theaded way the thead does not brake it comes untheaded.

When threading the machine, pull at least six inches of thread through the needle's eye. Pull up the bobbin thread (see video) and then gently hold both threads gently with your left fingers when taking the first couple of stitches in your fabric.

My machine is not picking up the bobbin thread

check the needle to see if it's damaged
make sure to have a 3-5 inch thread tail on the bobbin
then make sure the top thead has a 3-5 inch tail , then hold the top thead with your fingers( away from the needle) & with the other hand use the handwheel on the right hand side of the sewing machine & slowly manually let down the needle into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will come up that way

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up - this will make sure the tension feature has control of the top thead.

Make sure the needle is properly placed - usually with the flat side toward the back of the machine.

Thead keeps pulling out of needle

There are a couple of things to check, first of all check that your needle is installed correctly. Thread breaking will happen if the needle is a little off or installed backwards, or even if it may be the teenest bit bent. Best bet is to put in a new needle and make sure the groved side of the needle is towards the back of the machine.
A misaligned needle can also throw the tension out, so once you are sure about the needle you will have to adjust the tension following your machines instructions.
