My bobbin is not sewing smoothly. It is pulling and causing a very rough stitch.

Rewind a bobbin, sounds like it is wound unevenly, remember don't speed when you are winding.

I am trying to retread the bobbin for my singer sewing machine but the thread is not tight but is very loose

I think that you have wound the bobbin with the thread unwinding the right way. Retry winding again and do not speed, just a steady pace.

Bobbin holder won't lock into place to wind

Replace your needle with a new one and insert with the flat side facing away from you. Then turn the handwheel towards you, never away from you or else you can mess up the timing

Hand Wheel Won't Turn

The "Bobbin stopper" is in the incorrect position. It moves from side to side in a switch like motion. In one direction, it locks up the machine. That is, you can turn the wheele backwards, but not forward.. The bobbin stopper can be found in the book that cam with the machine. In our book, it is item #9.

Singer 7444 trouble winding bobbin

It sounds like you don't have any tension on the thread when winding the bobbin. Make sure that you are running the thread through the tension disc on the top of the machine before going to the bobbin winder.
