Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
I cannot wind cotton onto my bobbin. I think I cannot wind cotton onto my bobbin. I think the clutch is not disengaging properly. the clutch is not disengaging properly. I had the machine serviced but they did not fix this problem. Help!
What model Bernina is it? Most operate on a simple system where a rubber wheel on the bobbin winder comes into contact with the handwheel (under the cover) ... the handwheel is disengaged so the needle has no drive.......

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.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't turn
take the top of the machine cover off by removing screws on top plastic cover. Make sure that the rubber ring on the wheel that turns the bobbin threader is making contact with the belt from the flywheel in the back. You may need to see if it turns freely. If not take it off and lubricate it until it frees up and then replace it and the cover.

SOURCE: Winding the Bobbin
If you have a top winding bobbin on the right hand side it may be that the winder is seizing up, you must put a drop of oil now and again down the spindle otherwise it goes dry very quickly at high speed.

SOURCE: bobbin spindle won't spin
Check the bobbin winder rubber, it may be worn or broken and insufficient friction against handwheel to turn.........or a thread jam around spindle is stopping the spin. In this case, carefully unwind, DO NOT cut thread.

Your bobbin was basically crushed slightly, to remove it simply take the thread off the bobbin and it will come off very easily.
When you wind a bobbin on a Husqvarna and you leave the machine threaded to wind the bobbin through the needle, you must take the thread down below the foot (a metal foot only) before you take the thread up to the bobbin winder. If you take the thread directly from the needle it creates too much tension on the thread and crushes the center of the bobbin so that either you can't get the bobbin off the spindle or in some cases it damages the bobbin completely.
Some threads, the kind that can stretch slightly when pulled, shouldn't be wound through the needle at all. Instead go through the first guilde and then straight down to the little metal "button like" guide and then to the bobbin. It will create much less tension on the thread and wind it much better.
