Question about Sew D'Lite SM-888 Mechanical Sewing Machine
THe bobbin winding pin in the center of the hand wheel turns like its supposed too, but the bobbin winding pin on top does not do what it is supposed too and so winding bobbins just isnt happening here..how can i fix this problem?? Please help
SOURCE: Winding the Bobbin
If you have a top winding bobbin on the right hand side it may be that the winder is seizing up, you must put a drop of oil now and again down the spindle otherwise it goes dry very quickly at high speed.

Also it is quite possible that the small circuit board (P-print) just below the bobbinwinder that the motor plugs into has gone bad.

I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.)
After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.

slide plate may be worn - i had the same problem. try holding down the center of the bobbin with a pin while slide plate is in the winding position.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

Remove the race cover and jiggle it out. It is only stuck in there with thread.
oil the machine first. Then, determine whether or not you need any parts at all.
