Unless it is real old,it has a motor,but,if you are looking at the same one as me,there is no motor or make and model numbers,it is invisible.

The machine show in the picture has a motor for sure. It is inside. I can't help much more because you didn't give make and model.

Just bought the machine...a vintage metal portable one . cant seem to get the needle to move. turns on and wants to run but no movement

Most likely the machine has seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling. Take it to a sewing repair shop for a maintenance check. (Avoid running the machine while the motor is unable to move the parts properly. It could damage the motor.)

Model 27. How much does it weigh?

What model is my new home janome sewing machine, or how do I find it?

Difficult for us to know. The model name/number is usually stamped or printed on the machine--sometimes on a plate or sticker or engraved in the metal.
