There is a smaller wheel in the center of the big wheel. This has to be tightened in order for the needle to operate. This smaller wheel is needing to be in the loosened state to wind the bobbin. The needle should not go up & down then. Just hold the outside wheel & tighten the inner wheel. This should solve your problem. Hey, just wondering if I could possibly get a copy of your manual, as I lost mine for this model. I would really appreciate it! My email is email@example.com Thanks & Good Luck

You did not say it jammed from thread or just stopped working.
If it is thread, then you will need to carefully use embroidery scissors with a sharp point or a razor blade to cut at the lump of threads and carefully pull them out with your tweezers till you clear the mess. Use your vacuum to get all bits out of there, being careful and not hitting the loopers. You can knock them out of alignment with thread jams and such.
If it just stopped and you cannot turn the wheel, then it needs a trip to the repair shop, either your dealer or to a sew and vac repair where they know how to service sergers.

here is some troubleshooting
Download your manual.
Ok I know that youve checked this, but I have to ask.
Check and make sure the reverse lever isnt engaged.
I'm looking at pg 27 and see you have a traditional bobbin casing (not a drop in) make sure your bobbin is wound well and the case is inserted correctly. (they are picky)
Change your needle make sure its in right and tight. (I have bent many a needle just slightly, and it causes huge issues with this particular type of bobbin casing)
Pg 35 gives a test for the bobbin tension. If your thread rolls, the tension is too loose, OR the case may have gotten damaged.
Lets see if this helped.

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.
