It may be that the silver square object in front of it is to tight. I had this happen and I loosened that up with small screwdriver and put bobbin case back in and it helped. Had to play with it for a while. Or It may be that the bobbin case has chip out and need to replace that.

You're best bet is probably to buy a new bobbin casing. They're usually about $25 or so and you should be able to find one on eBay by searching for Singer (your machine name and model) under the Crafts category. The silver plate on top of the area covering where you place your bobbin into has screws you need to carefully remove (careful not to loose them!). If you need to, take pictures with your cellphone or digital camera as you remove the old bobbin casing so you can see how to put the new one in.

Bobbin case is popping out, and machine is birdnesting

Usually when this happens the bobbin is in wrong, replace it make sure the thread is going out the right way, make sure there is no lint or small pieces of thread around or underneath the bobbin area. Make sure you thread it with the foot up. Also make sure you are usng the right bobbin for the machine. They can easy get mxed up.

Then I noticed that the bobbin casing was out of the original position, take the whole casing out and make sure that when you put it back that the small metal tension loop at the front side on the right is correct, this image you can see in your handbook, (placement of the bobbin casing)
