Singer Bobbin Winder Not Working Properly?

I have a Singer Brilliance 6160 sewing machine and I have just started experiencing some problems with the bobbin winding mechanism. On the one hand, the bobbins are not so nicely wound as they used to. I mean, sometimes the winding is not homogeneous and there is more thread at the top or bottom of the bobbin. On the other hand, the machine used to stop when the bobbin was full and now it doesn't. It can continue forever, putting thread even out of the bobbin. Does anyone have had the same issue?


Thank you.

Thank you very much for your kind reply, but I don't know exactly what the bobbin winder tire is. Is there a picture that I can see to understand it?
On the other hand, my sewing machine is only one year old, and I have winded at most 10 little bobbins. Is it still possible that the tire is worn out with that use?
Thank you again.

Ok how do you replace the winder tire? The machine is from 1958.
