Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.
Singer 2010 touch tronic. Trying to fill a bobbin and several things happen;
1. thread does not pull off spool. Have chedcked proper spool placement and rethreaded machine 4-5 times. have manual and i think it is correct.
2. once the thread did pull off the spool and the thread pooled under the bobbin- did this once in 8 tries
The bobbin light does not come on as the manual says it should. Is there a connection?

Re: Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill...
There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

Presser foot up, takeup lever at the top, thread the machine normally all the way and through the needle, open the needle plate, press the little lever to the right, wind the thread from the needle round the presser foot screw, press on the foot control slowly and wind the bobbin, when you have enough thread on the bobbin close the slide plate the winder will drop down, pull the threads to the back of the machine and start sewing
No, sewing machines that use bobbins don't have an adapter like that. It would be difficult to get the bottom tension right working off the spool. The best solution is to fill several bobbins in your thread color before starting to sew. Then when you run out, swap in a new bobbin.
Some advanced machines will warn you when the bobbin runs low. (I've seen the feature on the machines with touch-screens.)
I wish that I had better news for you. A serger might be a an option to consider. They don't use a bobbin and can be used for some sewing projects. You can still run out of thread on one cone before the others run out. (Those machines use 3-4 threads at a time for the basic stitches. The knife can be lowered if you don't want to trim your fabric while stitching.) Cindy Wells (I've got a Singer Touch and Sew and usually don't run out of bobbin during a seam. I will swap bobbins when they are still 1/4 full at times if I get concerned about the bobbin running out.)
I've had that problem before, I wrap several loops on the bobbin it's self & as I start to wind I make sure the thread from the spool is pulled tight from the spool to the bobbin,,& that usually takes care of the problem
What type of material are your trying to sew? If it is stretchy, or thin put some gift wrap tissue paper under it to stabilize it. Also, adjust your tension to about 2 or 3. Now check your needle, put a fresh one in, maybe a 9 or 11. Do not use old thread, either because it breaks easy. Try this, I hope that it works for you. You can buy stabilizer, pellon but tissue paper is what we used years ago, sometimes even computer paper. Good luck.
It sounds like your path for your thread around the guide is not correct, read your maual, page 10 and see that you have to cross over your thread to give the right tension, then slide your bobbin over to touch the lever. Also, remember to hold the tail of the thread for a few rotations before you let go. If, you do not have a manual, go to singerco.com and download one for free.
Threading the bobbin - winding thread onto the bobbin.
Position the new empty bobbin onto the vertical bobbin rod next to the end wheel. Click the rod to the right to engage drive. Hold the outer end wheel with left hand, and rotate the inner wheel anticlockwise by about a 1/2 turn (it stops) this removes drive from the foot and needle mechanism.
From a spool of thread on the top, thread to a loop/post on the left on the top. Then back to the bobbin you want to wind. Thread through a hole from the inside-out. Hold the thread vertically above the bobbin while you depress the footswitch to start winding. Let go when it's turned a few times.
Move bobbin shaft left, and tighten end wheel after winding enough.
Move footplate towards you, insert bobbin in hole so that bobbin rotates anticlockwise when thread is pulled, then pull thread into the fine notch towards you. After this position thread away from you, and slide the footplate closed.
To start / load thread. Hold the end 3" of the thread through the needle behind the sewing foot. hand crank towards you to sew first stitch in air. This should retrieve the lower thread - which you can catch with a handy pair of scissors. Then pull both threads rearwards - ready to sew.
