If you're sure you've set the machine bobbin winding function to the correct setting for bobbin winding and the machine is still not winding, it's time for a visit to the qualified repair tech.

Sounds as though the bobbin gear has worn out - this happens as machines age, The bobbin gears of today, no matter who manufactures the machine, are made with rubber/plastic/silicone 'teeth' and over time these teeth wear down.


This is NOT a fix you can do at home - please don't try as you will only cause the repair tech to charge you more for replacing your gear and putting your machine back together after you've tried to do a home repair job.
