Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.

take a look that it has another button in the right down area that controls the feeding dog ..and for some machines is used for embroidery ....this button has to be in the middle to be working right ...it is usually posted under the one that controls the stitch length ...and it has some symbols with a stitch too..but it is in fact the step of the feeding dog ...Im not sure for your model ..but change the position of that button and see which one is the right one for to work ok ..In some position the feeding dog will not get high enough to touch the fabric and this is the reason that the feeding ahead will not work ..

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.
Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.
Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.
Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.
Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.
