Question about Sewing Machines
I am trying to wind the bobbin and it says to press the engaging lever to the right.... Where is the engaging lever???
The engaging letter is the gadget where you place the bobbin. By pushing it to the right the machine disables the rest of the machine temporarily while you wind the bobbin.

If you have a top winding bobbin on the right hand side it may be that the winder is seizing up, you must put a drop of oil now and again down the spindle otherwise it goes dry very quickly at high speed.

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

SOURCE: Bobbin is not winding correctly
slide plate may be worn - i had the same problem. try holding down the center of the bobbin with a pin while slide plate is in the winding position.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

May be one of two problems.
1st you should be able to turn the nob about 90-120 degrees. Not a full turn.
If this is not the case follow these steps.
Turn the small screw on the nob about 2 full turns
Carefully turn the nob all the way off.
Inside there is a round part with 3 small prongs on it.
spin that 180 degree and put everything back together.
2nd your clutch is gummed up
You will need to remove the handwheel and motor belt for this.
Remove the nob, small 3 prong part, and motor belt.
Pull the handwheel off (it may be stuck on and hard to get off).
Clean inside the handwheel and the machine main shaft.
Lubricate the Main shaft and put handwheel back on.
When you put the small 3 prong part back on it needs to have the prongs sticking away from the machine.
Hope this fixes your machine
