If the winder is working without thread as it should you can rule out an electronic and motor issue. At this point it won't hurt to remove the two screws on top and lift your top cover off. Take a close look at your winder and see if there is any thread or anything wound around or blocking it. There are one or two screws that will adjust the eveness of your bobbinwinding but I don't think this is part of the problem (just a slight turn for that until the bobbin winds evenly). There is a spring beneith the winder that may have popped loose, check that but if the little arm snaps back and forth thats ok. The spring should be in the second tooth of the gear notches.
I hope this helps.

Also it is quite possible that the small circuit board (P-print) just below the bobbinwinder that the motor plugs into has gone bad.

If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.
Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.
Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.
