The upper shaft is probably binding a little on the bushing. Take it to your local Brother Dealer, this is not uncommon on this machine.
I have 25 years experience on Brother machines

SOURCE: hand wheel is hard to turn
If you take out the bobbin case and slide off the needle pate, you can inspect the bottom area for a thread jam. The black post that the bobbin case slides onto is called the thread hook. It should have a loose feel to it when you gently move it around, it should not have a "solid feel".
Another area that sometimes wraps the thread is the take up lever area.
(the lever that moves really fast up and down as the machine is sewing)
If the lever has been pushed to the left, it's possible the thread has wrapped up in that area.
If those two areas are o.k. you'll need to take it in for service.
