Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I don't know, but I can suggest a workaround to you. I'm not in live with their bobbin winding system anyway, but that's personal. You can purchase a bobbin winder; you can get one for about $25 from WalMart, and if you order it online and pick it up at a store, delivery is free. It does a much better job anyway.

Is thread under bobbin? can you turn it? can you pull the thread off the bobbin and then remove it? Bobbin that comes with machine may not be right one. Right one has a light blue tint and a slightly domed top.

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.

When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.

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
