There is an adjustment on the bobbin winder. Just bend the little spring flap that rides inside the bobbin while winding. Bend it up a little. The flap being pushed up is what releases the shut off

Singer 9217 thread winds under bobbin instead of on bobbin

Make sure the bobbin is seated all the way on the winding pin. There may be an adjustment for it--a technician can probably fix it for you. However, you can also try lifting the thread with a pencil tip just before it winds onto the bobbin. Some of my machines wind the thread unevenly (more on the bottom than the top of the bobbin) and I balance it out by lifting it when winding.

Trying to wind the bobbin on my singer 6268 but the thread keeps winding under the bobbin. What am I doing wrong?

if the bobbin winder is driven of the end of the machine then you may have to guide the thread as it winds onto the bobbin
if you are allowing the thread to come directly from the reel and it is not in line to the bobbin then what you have is what will happen

How to thread the bobbin

Are you trying to thread the bobbin for winding or for sewing?

For sewing, make sure the needle is fully up and then release the bobbin cover plate. Insert the bobbin so that the bobbin rotates counter-clockwise. Pull the thread through the slot at the center-front of the bobbin case. Hold down the bobbin with a finger then bring the thread to the left and through the slot on that side. You should here a clicking sound when you pull on the thread. Leave 6" of thread free and replace the cover plate. Refer to the manual (page 12) for pictures.

Many Singer sewing machine manuals are available for sale or download here: . The direct link to the manual for the 2662 is here: . See page 11 and 12.

If the bobbin thread isn't feeding, clean the hook and surrounding area. Then with the presser foot down, retry. If you aren't hearing the clicking sound when the thread is pulled, you may need the bobbin tension adjusted. There is a small set screw for the adjustment but it's really easy to damage the threads. If you still have a problem, the bobbin case or shuttle race may need to be replaced (See for the parts breakdown).

I hope this helps.

My thread in the bobbin keeps getting jammed up

Here are some possible solutions:
1) Try a new bobbin, and if you wind your own, make sure it is wound very tightly
2) Take the bobbin case out and make sure there are no stray threads stuck down there, they can wreak havoc! To do this, unscrew your throat plate and lift the bobbin case out. Then use your lint brush that came with the machine, or another small soft brush and give it a thorough cleaning under there.
Hope these help!

I have a Singer 2662 sewing machine. I have problems with the bobbin winder that will only wind it partially full or half full at the most. Any suggestions?

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.

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.
Good luck
