Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I believe that is top loading Apollo bobbin case if so, facing the front of the machine underneath bobbin cover/door there should be a bracket on the left (holds bobbin case) move it back, set case in with the cut out pointing to the back of the machine, you may have to wiggle it a bit until you feel it is seated the move the bracket back over the bobbin case

SOURCE: Bobbin Case
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

The silver plate should be on top.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your advice, I had initially placed it on top and it seemed to work but I wasn't 100% sure, now I am, thank you once again."
If you go here and search for 9005, you can find a free downloadable instruction manual.

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
