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 I understand the problem, the bobin winder has probably lost a rubber 'o' ring.
Unscrew the two top screws and remove the top cover. At the base of the bobin spindle is a metal disk that should have a rubber 'o' ring on it. This will perish over time and break off.
When the bobin winder is pushed sideways into the active position, this should contact the main turning handle thingy (that's a technical term) and be spun around. Check if the bobin 'o' ring is making contact or if it is even there at all. Any sewing machine repair shop (or good automotive store if you're desperate) will have a replacement.
