Question about Singer Sewing Machines
If you are talking about the bobbin case and it looks like the one below, it has a flipper latch at the very front that you just hook a fingernail on and open. Shouldn't have to remove any screws. The latch is the long vertical piece with the hole in the very center.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread getting caught
Check your Instruction manual - if you have taken the bobbin case apart to clean it, the shuttle must be reinserted with the little tab pressing against the piece you mention. It is under page 45 - "Caring for your machine" in my book. I missed it the first time I cleaned and oild mine.

The bobbin case is not supposed to move. It should only have a little bit of wiggle room so there is enough clearence for the thread.

try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
change the needle--flat side to the back of the machine, make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or theads
