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!

pull the bobbin case out by pulling tab or flapper forward (outward toward you) and take bobbin out of bobbin case, If bobbin has thread and that it is coming off bobbin free and is not hung up on bobbin case.
let me know if this helps you,

I am having a similar problem with my machine except it got much worse and now does not sew consistently. The needle is contacting the bobbin case. I found the following information about adjusting the timing and it looks like it might solve my problem- keeping my fingers crossed- maybe it will help you too.

On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

I think that you have had the wrong size bobbin. It should be a class 66. Look in your manual, it should tell you. If, that is not it, call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask if it sounds like the timing and if so where can you take it to get fixed. This is a nice machine, my friend, has one and it is worth getting fixed if you like it.
