SOURCE: My Singer 2639 Bobbin case
Hi, I used to have the same problem. I pulled the whole bobin casing out, cleaned it oiled it. When I put it back in, I made sure the actual bobin was turing the right direction so the cotton didnt snag and pull casing up.
If you havent already tried this give it a go.Its amazing how much gunk gets in there.

if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

Also make sure that you pulled the buttonholer lever down and pushed it back (it's on the left side of the presser foot) ... the machine won't make the forward and backward motions to form the buttonhole without it.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
