Question about Sewing Machines
Probably something within the bobbin winding mechanism is misaligned or broken. You can probably still wind bobbins except you will probably need to slow it down, watch it, and stop the winding action when the bobbin gets near the filled capacity. Or, for ~$35, you can purchase a standalone bobbin winder (one brand name is Sidewinder) from JoAnn's, Hancocks, or even Amazon.com. (Also helps save wear and tear on your machine.)

SOURCE: Bobbin Winder won't release
i have a husqvarna rose, i has the same problem when i started using my machine. i was suggested to not wind the bobbin so fast. the reason it gets stuck is because the thread is so tight on the bobbin it actually makes the bobbin a tiny bit smaller, making it hard to get off again. if you dont wind it so fast, it doesn't get so tight.

The bobbin winder question is a frequent one and it is very easy to solve. If you look at the shaft where the bobbin sits on the bobbin winder, you will notice that it has a slot in the middle of the shaft, an opening if you will. This is where you use a flat screw driver and open that space more to give more friction to the bobbin so it is not loose on the shaft. That slot was made for that. There are different bobbins on the market so thats why the slot is there. If it is too tight, grab a pair of pliers and close the gap. The metal of the bobbin winder on that shaft is malleable exactly for this reason. No need to put plastic bag material or anything like that. Use it as it was intended for.

You can turn the screw on the top of bobbin winder tad to right. Also, you may want to try a metal Universal bobbin, but try first option I gave first. Jimmy
