Question about Sewing Machines
BOBBIN WINDER stopped working. Is this a DIY repair? Motor whirls, but the winder doesn't engage at any variation on the side "safety" dial.
I would really suggest having the machines bobbin winder checked at a sewing machine repair shop..

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.

Either the winder rubber has worn down, or there may be some residue on the winder rubber, ot the winder may have seized through lack of oil which is quite common in that case it will need to be replaced
