Question about Singer 2250 Tradition
The most common reason for this is that the bobbin case is inserted the wrong way. There's a slot on the bobbin case. When it's inserted into the machine this should face up. The needle comes down through this slot and picks up the thread from the bobbin. If it's put in the wrong way the needle hits against the case and cannot get through to the thread on the bobbin.
The other possibility is that the new needle doesn't fit properly. It may not be pushed fully up into the machine. Sometimes this can happen if the needle is too thick for the machine or if the screw wasn't loosened enough to allow the needle up fully.

Be sure the needle is tightly fastened and all the way up into the needle bar. Make sure the bobbin is in right way around and the needle is fully up in the needle clamp, try a new needle — especially if you’ve heard a “clunk” or “ping” of metal hitting metal, like needle hitting a pin, or the presser foot, or the needle plate or the bobbin case…. My bet is on bad or loose needle,
bobbin case slipped out of position or bobbin in backwards or not threaded properly.
However bobbin or bobbin case not inserted correctly; wrong needle system; needle not all the way up in the needle clamp are the first three possibilities . The needle clamp on the sewing machine needs to be opened completely and the needle pushed up in it as high as it will go, then held as the needle clamp is tightened. Put some finger strength into it... you don't have to get the clamp killer tight, but you don't want the needle wiggling loose.
And finally, check the bobbin and bobbin case are in the machine completely.
Once you figure out what's going on, you're going to want to put in a new needle. Needle tips that have hit metal are dead. And make sure you put the needle in right way around -- usually the flat back of the needle goes to the back of the machine. Otherwise the needle can't pick up the bobbin thread and the stitches don't form.
