I would call Singer at 1-800-4singer and have them direct you to an authorized warranty center. This sounds like an serious electrical problem and should be covered under warranty.

Do you mean that when you are winding a bobbin, it is not winding smothly? If yes, this means that the thread has not been held firmly under tension while winding from the thread spool to the bobbin.
Do you have a manual and if so, are you thread the thread correctly through the thread guides and the tension device correctly as per diagram?
If you don't have a manual to refer to you can download it free from the Singer website, link is
http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals, then type in the model number only and click "search", you will see there is a pdf file of your manual.
Bobbin winding is covered on page 24 and it looks like the thread needs to go through two guides, then around the tension device before it goes onto the bobbin. Winding a bobbin is much like coiling the garden hose back onto the hose reel. It needs to be done smoothly and evenly tensioned to get a good even bobbin and to achieve this, you need even tension on the thread so it runs smoothly onto the bobbin. It may be a bit difficult to see the bobbin as it winds on this machine as it is sitting inside the top panel but you want the bobbin to fill evenly top, middle and bottom and with smooth even tension.
If you do have it threading correctly but it isnt tensioning the thread enough, you could try just resting somthing firm onto the thread spool that the thread is coming off such as your scissors handle, you just want to slow the turning of the spool so that the thread is kept running at an even tension and not stretched, then slack. If the bobbin is wound with thread tensioned in a varying way, ie stretched, then not, when you stitch your seam the thread is going to pucker in your seam.
I hope that I have understood your problem and helped you out with this. Obviously if you have done it the correct way and the tension device is not tensioning the thread at all, its faulty and will need to be serviced by a technician to address the fault.
