Question about Singer 1116 Mechanical Sewing Machine
ROLL THE MANUAL LEVER BACK AND FORTH WITH CONTROLLED FORCE till the needle comes out! the jamming is caused by threads tangled inside the bobbin area. rolled it with a controlled force back and forth. when the needle comes out flip your machine to where you could open the bottom part and remove/clean the threads tangled on the bobbin!
place some OIL.

Thread is caught in the hook...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case, turn the hand wheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands

did you turn the machine off and unpluged it for awhile...locking up may be a safety feature to protect machine from further damage
Make sure to remove broken needle if possible and turn lever by hand after restarting machine
