Question about Sewing Machines
I have a Singer sewing machine #6268 and the bobbin wind is not working. I did find a small stop in the machine. The only place I could find where it goes is on the back side of the slide plate. Is is OK to super glue it one.
First you must clean the bobbin chase, remove all lint and threads. After you have cleaned that area, reset your screws (assuming you adjusted the screws on the bobbin case and not something else). Re-thread you upper thread and make sure the pressure foot and needle are in the highest position and you are in straight stitch mode. Then install an empty bobbin and push the cover so the arrows match (you should hear a slight click). Pull the upper thread down and wind it over the presser foot screw, insuring you are on the little area DIRECTLY BEHIND THE SCREW, pulling thread under the pressure foot before winding the thread. Press "A" button and the circle with the dot in the middle should light up. The just press on the foot pedal. You can see through the view port how the thread is winding the bobbin.

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.
3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.
4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.
5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.
6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.
7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.
8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.
9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
