Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Because the bobbin is stuck, the needle hits the bobbin and breaks. To rectify this situation, please remove the bobbin. It may be stuck because of loose thread wrapped around the pin or some rusting. You can either remove the threads or clean the rust and oil the pin. And start using the sewing machine.

Needle breakage is usually caused by a damaged needle or one that is the incorrect size for the fabric. Remove and reinsert a new needle, making sure that the flat side goes toward the back of the machine. Make sure the needle size is appropriate for the fabric . Also check the attachment of the presser foot to see that the needle is not striking it.
Also check that Upper thread has run out,if the Presser foot is up or if the Bobbin winder shaft was left in winding position.
Check that the buttonhole lever was not lowered when machine was placed in buttonhole mode,Replace empty spool and thread machine.Lower the presser foot and Move bobbin winder shaft back fully to the left and Lower buttonhole lever.

The machine timing has gotten out of adjustment. Slipping of an adjustment is causing the needle and shuttle to interfere. If the shuttle around the bobbin is not rotating, something has come loose. If you open and manually rotate the works you should be able to see what is not moving that should be. It may have lost a pin from a shaft or a setscrew. Test this without the needle in place.
Youtube has some good videos for the repair of the problem. Search for "sewing machine timing"
