Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Doesn't that just give you fits? :) Usually this happens shortly after a needle break. So check your bobbin, bobbin carrier, needle plate.... for stab marks and burrs. Then if you find some carefully smooth those with fine grit sand paper at least 400 grit.

From what I gather on other sites, your thread has to be threaded under tension.... You have to make sure you hear a click when your bringing your thread down to the bottom of the "arm". Also, I thought the bobbin case was rather loosely held in its place, I adjusted this by unscrewing the black plate and moving it over just a smidge. The bobbin is supposed to have some wiggle room, but it kept popping up and making the tiny adjustment seems to have done the trick....for now...

This problem is common in sewing machines with plastic bobbin cases. The new case you've ordered will most likely solve your problems. I might suggest checking the point of the rotating hook, to be sure it is burr free.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread bunching
I have a Kenmore 16231 That kept bunching up on the bottom side of the material. I found to correct this problem, there is a tension adjustment under the cover on the left side of the machine ( the light is housed under this cover) I found a tensiner lever numbered 1 - 4 and if you try this adjustment on 3 or 4 this machine works great. hope this helps
