That often means the machine is in need of lubrication, or stray bits of thread have jammed something up. Unless you want to void the warranty (if any) by taking the case off, it's probably a "take it to the shop" fix that should be included in a standard COA ("sewing machine tuneup", which usually runs $50-100. I don't know when this machine was made, but White deteriorated sadly in the last years; it may not be worth fixing. There are aftermarket bobbin winders like the Sidewinder available for $20-$50, if you want to run it till it dies. Ordinarily, a COA is needed once a year on many machines. See also: http://www.gwsms.com/ultimatetuneup.htm for an idea of what happens in that service by a thorough repair shop.

SOURCE: bobbin winder won't spin Cannot load bobbin

Can be dirt or particles that have made it stuck with friction and so a resetting /overhauling with good oiling, degresing will resolve the matter, provided there is wearing off in the drive.
First use a degreasing spray before you can disemble.

SOURCE: Janome sewing machine bobbin winder

I had that problem the first time I tried to wind a bobbin. What a mess. The next time I let the thread run through my finger and thumb before reaching the bobbin. I had to do the same on a previous Kenmore.

I've also found that the heavier Bernina bobbins don't 'jump' around.

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: Kenmore sewing maching model 158.904

I bought mine at Walmrt. They are a Singer product and says it will fit most machines. There are 2 belts in the package and the small one is for bobbin winders. I have a Kenmore 158,904 and it fits perfect.

SOURCE: Bobbin winder will not spin on sewing machine

If you take the top off you will see a tiny rubber tire that engages the winder to the handwheel. Over time they get really soft are really hard and disintgrate. If you have a local sewing shop take the old one in and get a new one to slip on it takes only a few minutes and cost usually less that $2.00

Bobbin on Bernina 807 won't wind?


Please follow the logic checks and possible corrections:

1. Check the winder shaft for a sticking or a stuck condition. If stuck or sticking, add a drop or two of mineral spirits to the winder shaft and the winder support bushing. This will generally release the winder shaft.
If the winder shaft becomes free wheeling, clean off excess solvent and apply a drop of Bernina machine oil which is typically a class 68 machine oil. You can also use a common white mineral sewing machine oil.
Do not use WD-40 or 3 in 1 oil!
If WD-40 had been used prior to the winder seizure then you'll know why....Removing sticky WD-40 residues requires further measures.

2. If only the rubber wheel has hardened, you will need to replace the winder hub with a new hub and replaceable winder ring or the entire winder can be replaced. There are some very good after-market parts available online.

3. If the winder parts are good and you are describing a condition where the hand-wheel will not release so that the machine drives while trying to wind a bobbin, this would requite another question and detailed answer... SewTechnical Home

Bobbin winder shaft wont spin


If you take it apart, you'll void the remaining warranty. The usual cause is not getting the door open completely and/or thread wrapped around the spindle.

some machine, you have to push the bobbin winder spindle to the
right so that it will wind the bobbin, I have to on mine.
but if you've already done that then the machine needs to be checked
to see what wrong with the bobbin winder spindle

When i try to stitch it won't let me and instead says "wind disable", how do i fix it?


Wind disable means you're in the bobbin winding mode. The chrome shaft on the right end of the top of the machine is pushed to the right. Push the (bobbin winder) shaft to the left side of the slot and you should be able to sew again.

I need to know how to thread a bobbin?


TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help Title:
How do I wind the bobbin? windingbobbin_02.jpg

1. Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin. windingbobbin_a0991.jpg
2. Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk. Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.

Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
Note
  • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
  • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
(For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.
woundbobbin3.jpg ac0993.jpg Wound evenly ac0994.jpg Wound poorly


Note
  • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
  • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

Viking sewing machine 545 bobbin stuck on rewind


It should just pull off of the winder shaft. There is a small spring that sticks out from the shaft to hold the bobbin in place (at least on my wife's Viking which is a different model number than yours). Is there a release button somewhere near?

well!I If you buy a new sewing machine it has a manual to guide you in any brand.But if buy a used one sometime it doesn't have a manual, you didn't mention the type of sewing machine you want to use any how if you have a mechanical sewing machine it's better to start on it.First you must know and must familiarize the significant part of machine and important usage of them,I'll just mention the most usage part at start.Putting thread in bobbins first there is bobbins winder where thread was wind,draw thread from spool through bobbins winder tension disc located at top of machine.wind thread around an empty bobbins serveral times then,place bobins onto bobbins winder shaft with thread wound on bobbins clockwise sometimes this is located at top right side a shaft coupled to circular rubber touching handwheel perpendicular sometime it was located at right side front of machine near handwheel.Release clutch by pulling handwheelor rotating pivot wheel counterclockwise at the center of handwheel whlle holding freeze the handwheel tigh in order to disingage the motion of handwheel from mechanism of machine.
