Question about Singer 4166 Sewing Machine
I threaded the machine properly and the red light comes on when bobbin is put into wind position. The machine will not do anything. I pushed on the presser foot and pushed the start button........will not move no matter what. Did I miss something in the instructions?

SOURCE: Problem with winding thread onto
first you must make sure the winder shaft is turning by moving it to the right a little and see if you can turn it by hand.
If it is turning ok then there is a rubber ring on the other end of the winder shaft and it should come in contact with the drive which turnes it ,if it is worn it might need a new rubber.

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

this is a common problem, don't worry it's easy to fix. take the spool of thread off, remove the bobbin. look for any stray thread pieces in or around the bobbin case, rethread the top of the machine and when you do, follow the threading guide precisely and ---here's the trick---make certain that the thread goes between the tension discs.

I had a received a sewing machine and it was doing the same thing.
I brought it to a sewing place to get it checked out.
They said the timing is off and they fixed it bought it cost me $68.00.
