If the bobbin is on correctly try crossing the thread before going through the tensioner which should solve this problem and also a more evenly wound bobbin.

You need to turn the wheel inside the handwheel to wind a bobbin. You will feel it "release". (I think you turn it towards you - can't remember, sorry!) Don't forget to turn it back when you are done.

Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.

It is not that the thread is not being picked, it is just that the tension of both the top and bottom threads is not equal. That is why the thread at the bottom gets collected because the lower thread is loose compared to the top one. Loosen the top thread by unscrewing the thread tightner a little at a time. The problem will be sorted out when tension get equal or near equal.

1. Place the thread spool on the spool pin in
against the spool.
back to front. Pull the thread clockwise around
the inside to the outside.
4. Place an empty bobbin on the bobbin spindle.
5. Push the bobbin lever to the right to wind.
A pop-up appears on the screen to inform
you that bobbin winding is on. Press the
foot control or the start/stop button to start
winding the bobbin.
When the bobbin is full, the bobbin winding
will slow down and stop automatically. The
pop-up closes. Remove the bobbin and cut the thread
