Question about Euro-Pro 8260 Mechanical Sewing Machine
SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind Singer 7422
Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

SOURCE: Birdsnest and machine jams
I have a singer 457 (from 1964!!) that I inherited from my grandmother. It worked successfully many months, but then I developed a similar problem (birds nests, tangles in the bobbin assembly).
AFter messing with the tension, different spools of thread, and what not, I found that it was the BOBBIN that was the problem. Althought this bobbin is the same size and shape as others, there is something about it that knots up the inside of the machine EVERY time (as in within 15 stitches or less).
I tossed the thing and have been trouble free ever since.
I am now convinced that bobbins (particularily plastic ones) wear out.

I have two possible solutions:
1. you have the wrong bobbin and it doesn't grip the winder.
2. the small spring on the winder spindle is missing or bent, it is what applies pressure to the bobbin for winding.
