I own a Singer Inspiration sewing machine . model #4228.with a drop in bobbin
case. While sewing a thick sweater the needle shaft jammed in the down position.
I finally got it unjammed, but I can't sew because the needle hits the bottom of
the bobbin case. If I take the needle out it runs just fine. But I can't sew on
it because of the needle hitting the bottom of the bobbin case.

Did you put a new needle in the machine? If not, that probably is the  
problem.

 First put in a new needle the correct way and turn by hand to see if it  
still hits. If it does probably time for a trip to the repair ship as you  
most likely disturbed the hook to needle relationship, often called timing.  
More importantly is what caused that relationship to become altered. Could  
be a broken gear or something major or just a simple adjustment.
