If the bobbin winder is not turning after pushing it on it will either be that there is some oily rsidue on the winder rubber, the winder rubber is worn on one side although if the machine is new it is very unlikely, the winder rubber is not connecting with the balance wheel which means an adjustment and that will mean getting inside the machine which is not easy.

When I have run into similar problems with my older Singer, it's because there is a bit of thread caught somewhere in the bobbin mechanism that doesn't allow the shuttle to run freely. Take the bobbin assembly apart and use a bright light to see if you see any bits of thread in there.
Good luck and let me know if this works!

SOURCE: can't put thread on bobbin
I cannot tell what your problem is. The winder isn't working? The bobbin won't hold the thread so it will fill?
There are threading guides at the sewusa website that may be helpful as they include written instructions along with graphics.

I could not find a guide for this model.
If there is a knob in the center of the handwheel, it needs to be loosened.
Take the thread from the spool around the first guide and then to toward the bobbin winder.
Run the end of the thread through an opening in the side of the bobbin spool.
Hold onto about 5" of the thread and place the bobbin spool onto the bobbin pin and move the pin to the right or the winding wheel to the left (depends on how your machine is designed).
Holding onto the thread end, press the power pedal.
When you cannot hold onto the thread any longer, stop the machine and cut off the thread end and then continue to wind the bobbin.
Disengage the bobbin winder (move the pin or the wheel back into place) and tighten the knob in the center of the handwheel before sewing.

Hi. The most likely reason for this is that the needle is not inserted correctly. There is a flat side to the needle shank that has to be inserted facing a particular way--to the right as you're facing the machine, or to the left, or to the rear, facing away from you. Most modern machines need the flat side of the needle facing to the rear, so try that first. Also make sure the needle isn't bent or dull.
Hope this helps!
