Question about Sewing Machines
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
