Question about Singer 2662
There are two details to this that may make a difference in the answer...
The problem I had was that it wound the bobbins too high on one side, so the rubber foot stopped it but it was only half full. So if you looked at the bobbin after it was wound straight on, you saw a slant to one side where more thread was wound. The fix to that was easy - gently guide the thread down with your finger as it winds to make sure it does so evenly. Be careful with the pressure! You don't need much at all to do the job, but if you push down too far it will quickly go right past the bottom of the bobbin and wind on the metal axel.
The second detail is that the rubber foot that is attached to the right of the bobbin spooler on the top of the machine (it has a screw down on it) has been bumped or moved closer to the bobbin so that it stops too early. The best way to fix this is to tighten the screw just a hair - that goes clockwise and should twist the rubber foot with it as much as you tighten. IF the screw is already really tight, then just use your thumb to push that rubber foot out a bit (again, clockwise around the screw post).
Warning: Overtightening the screw will lead to breaking it all together pretty easily, so only use the tighten the screw method if it's already loose!
Make a small move to it, then try winding again. If the wrapped thread extends past the edge of the bobbin, you've adjusted too far and need to bring it back in.
