Re: machine makes noise from the turn wheel, as if it...
Since I don't know what type of machine you have many things are possible and the covers will need to come off to locate the problem. Its unlikely a belt would need replaced but very likely the part that keeps tension on the belt could be gummed up and need cleaning and oil. This will cause noise and the feeling of smoothness if its froze or stiff and won't turn or roll with the belt.
Also the shaft where the handwheel is attached could need a good cleaning and a little oil. Having the machine serviced would be the answer.

There are some areas of the machine which cannot be accessed for home servicing - the covers need to be opened up to access them. If the hand wheel is heavy to turn then you may be at the beginning of a needle bar seizure, given the noise at that end of the machine - this will usually sound like a groan. We see this occasionally in machines which have been worked hard without servicing. If you have caught it early, it should be solved by a service at your local sewing centre.
You can loosen the screw on the back and slide the end cover off and put a couple of drops of oil (use only light machine oil) on the top of the needle bar, which will run down to the bearing surfaces, but if that is dry enough to be making noises, the other internal bearings will also be looking for some love.
Sound like the whole unit needs a good cleaning. My rule is "if it moves give it a lube", be careful not to get oil on electric boards or in the motor. What is the make and model of your machine. I will try to help you more.
not knowing your machine make or model, I can only suggest that you are having "tension" issues. Most machines have tension control located around the wheel, sort of like a second very thin wheel. This type usually requires that you would hold the wheel in place while moving the 2nd wheel to make the adjustment.
Other machines have the tension control looking like a push button. Maybe in the middle of one of the other tenstion wheels. pushing that button in while turning that and/or other control wheels would help that.
I may also be that your machine just needs to be oiled. Fabric stores will have this oil and it is specially formulated for sewing machine parts. More is less w this type of oil.
T ake a look all around and even under the machine, hopefully you will find a number for tech support for your machine.
Open your side cover. normally a screw on top and two on the bottom and maybe one on the side.
After removing the cover you will see one or two tensioner plastic black pullies.(they keep your motor belt and timing belt tight. They need a little bit of machine oil.
