Looks like you have a problem with either the wheel or the gears. I would recommend getting a professional to take a look, as we cant do any thing more in this forum..We can only offer you guidance..

your machine needs servicing. make sure you oil all spots indicated in your user manual and turn handwhel by hand for a minute or so to work oil in.
if this doesn't make machine easy to turn see a tech for full service.

My Bernette did exactly the same thing as you describe and when I took it to the mechanic there was a gear right inside that had split on the main drive path. It was a nylon gear and it had cracked right through the middle - my machine was about 12 years old at the time.
After one store advised I junk the machine, I then priced the part from Bernina head office, spoke to another mechanic and he was able to send my machine to another mechanic he knew who could pull the thing apart quicker because he'd done the repair before. I was warned it would cost $270-350 but I love the machine so said go ahead.
I'd suggest you take your husky to a local husky dealer for a quote on this, it does sound similar.

Hi, On most of these newer machines they have a clutch that you engage to fill the bobins.
Please make sure that the clutch is disengaged for normal use. If this is all OK see that belt
is attached on motor.
