Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

Are you certain you are using a singer bobbin to suit this machine ?
If you have gathered a collection of bobbins over the years and have just grabbed "any old one" it may have different depth and diameter.
If this is the old 9217 that has a self winding bobbin, it is even more important to get it right.
It is almost always necessary to match the bobbin to the machine to avoid problems.
Also ensure that the bobbin is sitting comfortably, not at any angle, and that the hook race surrounding it is clean and free of lint deposits.
Singer UK has a few diagrams & info that may be helpful ....here

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.

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...

When you insert the bobbin case, make sure the "knub" on the bobbin case (#1) is just to the left of the position finger bracket (#2). It should sit in there nicely and you should be able to spin the hand wheel freely.
Let me know if you need more help,
