Wheel wont turn

Quite possibly thread jammed in the raceway, take the bobbin case and raceway out and check, it may only be a small piece but it will stop the machine

Timing Lag.

Are you sure the timing has gone,?
Check these first, needle in the correct way round, threaded properly, needle not blunt or bent.
If the machine still misses stitches arfter checking this then it needs retiming, select straight stitch, take off the needle plate, take out the bobbin case if you have a seperate bobbin case, and undo the two clips to take off the race cover, if you have a drop in bobbin just take out the bobbin, take the bottom off the machine so you can see underneath the raceway, tilt the machine back it will be easier, turn the balance wheel by hand towards you so the needle is going down into the machine then on its way back up, just as it starts to go up stop, look at the point of the hook, it should be just above the eye of the needle, if it is not undo the screws on the vertical gear underneath the raceway and you can move the hook round to where it should be, tighten and put the plate and parts back and test sew, if you have a front loading bobbin case undo the screws on the shaft of the raceway and move the hook round to where it should be, it may take you several attempts, if the machine sews perfectly on straight stitch test it on wide zig zag, if it misses stitches one side you will have to start again moving the hook either side slightly until you get it right thx nick

Necchi 3205 FA: Seized

It may not have seized there may be a very small piece of thread jammed in the raceway area, you need to take the bobbin case and the raceway out to check

I have a tread wrapped around inside the threading mechanism. I need to see a diagram to tell you what the thread is wrapped around.

Chances are it is wrapped around the raceway area, take out the bobbin case and take out the raceway if you can, if you have a rotary raceway that goes all the way round you will not be able to and it means painstakingly pulling out all the thread piece by piece

I was sewing along with no problem and then all of a sudden it jammed. I can't move the needle up or down without a lot of force.

There is probably thread jammed in the raceway area, take out the bobbin case and raceway if it is a front load bobbin

What or where is the raceway on a Bernina730

The raceway is the part that the bobbin case sits in, also known as the hook.

The hand wheel will not turn. I have no idea what happened, got any ideas?

Usually it is a bit of thread stuck in the raceway area, take the raceway and bobbin case out and have a good look.

Unless there is an access area either directly under the raceway or an access point behind the raceway on the body you will have no option but to take the body apart which is a major task in itself.
