Untangle any mess under and around the needleplate very gingerly trimming threads as you go if necessary....remove and clear.
Undo the needle clamp and remove the remains of the needle.
Open the door for the bobbin and bobbin case and undo the clips holding the hook in place......don't force anything, just ease any tangle loose slowly.
You may want to take a photo of how it goes back together if unfamiliar, or lay the bits out sensibly, so you can replace easily later.
Inside the bobbin/hook area is the most likely region for thread jamming the motion of everything, so make sure all is clear and clean, then.......
Without replacing the bobbin or hook, test the handwheel after cleaning before re-assembly.
You may also want to check the take-up crank for thread jams........the small arm in the top cover that moves up/down to "take-up" the top thread has a cam attached to the top shaft and often tangles thread around the shaft, open the L side cover to access.......remove thread by unwinding handwheel manually ....again be patient and careful not to break threads.

either your sewing machine needs to be cleaned of lint and dust in this area or your needle is bent. I would do the cleaning and install a new needle. Also make sure that your bobbin is sitting properly and tight in its case. Good Luck!

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

By 'The wheel the belt is on' you mean the motor pully? If that is so obviously some oil has some how made way on the pully and the belt. Try to remove the belt and clean both wheels and the belt free of oil. This shd slove the problem.
If it doest then please send a photo of the arrangement showing pully and belt. U didnt mention if the machine is old or new. Did u oil it recently before trouble developed?
