Re: Bobbin does not fill completely
Machines that stop the bobbin winder automatically when the bobbin is full have a mechanism that detects how much thread is accumulating in the bobbin while it is winding, then stops the winder when the bobbin is full. It is likely that the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be adjusted by a mechanic.
On the other hand, if the thread winds evenly, and stops winding when the bobbin is about 3/4's full each time, you probably don't need to worry about it if all else is good (even tension, consistent stitch quality, and so on).
If you'd like me to post some general troubleshooting tips, let me know.

I don't know that machine specifically, but generally, there is a wheel or disk or something inside the hand-wheel that is the clutch. It needs to be disengaged to wind the bobbin. Here are some options: 1. if there is a wheel with serrations on the edge, turn it clockwise until the hand wheel moves freely. 2. if there is a button, press it until you hear a click and the wheel turns freely. or 3. if there is a disk with a depression on one side of it, press in on the depression as though it were a button.
BTW, don't you have a manual for it? If not, it's available for download at: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals/search just put 132 into the search window and there it is.
I know this sounds like an insult, but check FIRST to be sure you have the bobbin inserted in the bobbin case correectly. If it IS in the case right, then check your upper tension. It generally needs to be at 3. Check also to be sure the top thread is between the tension disks. If it isn't, you won't have the right tension to connect the threads. You bobbin also needs to be wound tightly. A loose wind will cause problems with the bobbin thread. If none of these work, the bobbin tension might need to be adjusted by a professional. I hope one of my suggestions helps. If so, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
