Did the machine get dropped, or otherwise roughly handled? Or have a rough, bumpy ride back home, etc? That could explain why it's not working correctly.

SOURCE: Bobbin case.......
A bobbin case for accommodating a bobbin which has a shaft portion and a collar portion formed on both sides of the shaft portion on which a thread is wound, the bobbin case comprises: an opening being opened on at least one side of an axial direction of the shaft portion, for detachably accommodating the bobbin; a thread take-up portion provided in the axial direction opposite to the opening, for pulling out the thread of the bobbin; and a holding member which makes contact with the bobbin and nonrotatably holds the bobbin.

SOURCE: I'm trying to do shirring?
My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?

SOURCE: thread or bobbin tension
Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.
Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.

Sounds like you need to put a drop of clear sewing machine oil in the raceway of the hook. Then sew on some scrap material to soak up the excess oil.
