The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.

I LOVED these Touch and Sew machines! The bobbin is wound in place in the bobbin case; you just flip a lever on the left, and it will start to fill. However, you should download your instruction manual free from the Singer Sewing Machine site; it's pictured and discussed on page 7.
A heads up, though; those bobbins were available with a metal piece in the center and without; from the drawing it appears that yours takes the one without anything but a hole in the center. I owned BOTH types of machines at the same time once, and I had to be careful as to which bobbin I used in which machine.
The Touch and Sew series of machines was commonly given nicknames like Touch and Swear and Sew and Throw and other less printable names by mechanics who had to repair them. The bobbin system is *very* touchy, and a bobbin that's just slightly chipped, cracked or otherwise not completely perfect will throw the whole machine into a tizzy.
try changing the needle rethread the machine top & bobbin make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case make sure the bobbin is wound correctly make sure the bobbin is not bent or damaged
I had a Golden Touch 'N Sew many years ago and as the machine aged and parts became worn, step 4 of this bobbin winding diagram started to become a problem and I had to sometimes try several times before the "tabs" would release. If they did not release, the machine "thought" it was still winding the bobbin and would not sew.
