Kenmore 385.196180

Just bought this machine at online Goodwill auction and she's a beauty! One thing it does not do is wind the bobbin. Everything else is working. These are the symptoms:
put in bobbin and thread to wind bobbin, engage clutch -- press on foot lever and bobbin winder winds about two times. I opened top of machine and the machine appears to be working mechanically.
Suggestions, any one?

My wild guess might be the spring is shot, but there can be a lot of other causes.

Most Likely the rubber ring needs to be replaced. Email me and I will send a like to the inexpensive part snipped-for-privacy@a1sewingmachine.com
