The bobbinwinder spindle is on the top of the machine on the right.
Try to turn the spindle with your fingers. If it is turning easily, good. If not, see below.
Push the spindle to the right and it should turn when the handwheel turns.
If the spindle does not turn properly, remove the two screws that hold the top cover on. DO NOT REMOVE THE SCREW THAT IS ON THE SMALL BLOCK NEXT TO THE BOBBINWINDER SPINDLE.
The top cover will not remove because of the handle. While lifting up the cover, peer under to make sure that there is a small rubber tire on the under side of the bobbinwinder spindle.
If the tire is there, place a small drop of oil on the spindle and turn it until it frees up. Try not to get oil on the tire, it will make it slip. Wipe it off if it gets oily.
Replace the top and retry.
