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

I found the same numbers on my Singer, but learned that the 13608M is not the serial number. I finally found it on the bottom of the machine. It typically begins with either a single or double letter. You can find the Serial No. and Year of Issue at http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html. You can also order a replacement manual. Another helpful site might be http://www.ismacs.net/Singer/singerdates.html.

thread the same way as for sewing. put empty bobbin case in bottom. close slide plate only to red button, not all the way. wrap thread from needle around bolt that holds on the presser foot (or just hold it tight). press pedal to sew. bobbin should wind. when done, shut slide plate all the way and sew.
if this doesn't work, try using a pin to push down the center of the bobbin when the slide plate is in winding position - the little catch on the bottom of the plate breaks easily and then the bobbin won't wind without a little help.

if you still haven't found one, reply to this thread. I have one as a PDF that I just bought for $5 that I'd be willing to share (this goes for anyone who finds this post, too)
