Question about Brother Sewing Machines
Trying to wind my bobbin and it make a whirring noise but doesn't move. No error message and needle is stationary.
Replacing the bobbin winder rubber ring.
I am sorry the 3rd image is so small. It shows the screw to remove to access the arrowed screw in the second image

The bobbin winder ring, (the rubber ring which drives the bobbin winder within the machine) on many of the lower end brother sewing machines have a tendency to melt/liquify. It's a very strange condition but is very common. If this has happened, it would be best to take your machine to a sewing machine repair shop to have the former bobbin winder ring cleaned out and replaced. If this is not the case, it is likely that your ring has become worn and is no longer making contact with the drive wheel, and should be replaced. I would not recommend taking this specific model apart to replace the ring yourself. It is not terribly difficult to take apart, but it can be very difficult to put it all back together properly, and this machine is particularly fragile, and could easily be damaged if you don't have a fair amount of experience with sewing machine repair.

Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,

SOURCE: Can't wind the bobbin
Well we finally downloaded a service manual that cost a few bucks, then finished getting the machine apart, then found a small rubber O-ring that had obviously gotten hot when spinning after the tangling of the thread on the bobbin stem. You could see where the heat had melted tiny teeth marks in the ring and it was stretched out of shape. It and yours too will need to be replaced.
If you or someone you know is mechanically inclined, you will need to take five screws out of the back including a hard to find one under the foot raising lever (lower the foot), then one form the front that is under the thread cartridge, and you will have to remove the bobbin winding plate cover which is held by one small screw, and then remove a small screw from the support bar.
