Question about Singer 8280 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Mine wasn't snapping in properly either. I took out the hook race cover and hook and put them back in. Then, the bobbin case was able to snap in. Be sure to hold it by the hinged part and have the small part that sticks out pointing up.

There is a black lever that holds in the case (look for it at around the 10-11 o'clock area on the circle where the bobbin case fits into. You need to use a screw driver (the one that came with the machine) and push and hold it back enough to wedge the bobbin case back in. the little black lever is spring loaded so it will go back to its normal position.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

Insert the bobbin case without a bobbin to see if it will go all the way into the locked position. If it does,the bobbin case and basket are okay.
Check inside the bobbin basket(where the bobbin goes) and see if there is thread or lint wrapped around the spindle the bobbin case sits on. If there is, remove it. If there isn't ,then the bobbin is probably sprung and needs to be replaced.

I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.
