Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
If something isn't broken, most likely the machine is seizing due to lack of frequent and thorough oiling.
Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.

I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.
