Question about Sewing Machines
It is locked up the needle shaft will not turn
What is the Make & Model? If it's an older mechanical machine, it could very well have seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling.
Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Whatever the brand and model number, you can find the manual on line, and the company website will have a specific troubleshooting area.
Generally, it may be that it is not threaded correctly. Rethread the machine, both the top and the bobbin, following the machine diagrams and directions. There are YouTube tutorials for most brands and models available to assist.
Thread may be caught in the bobbin case. Remove the bobbin and bobbin case, pull out any stray threads or clumps of thread, then reset the bobbin case, replace the bobbin.
Make sure the needle is not bent, and is installed correctly. The machine will lock up if the needle is bent or not properly installed.

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

They make so many needles now that it is hard to keep up. That does seam to be the problem though. Try a longer needle before you try to warranty the problem. I believe this will take care of the problem. Hope this helps. Please re-post with updates. Thanks.

If the stop motion wheel is stuck and you can't free it the best way to do it is to stand at the end of the machine, get something that looks like a chisel or something that has a flat end even a screwdriver, put the end of the screwdriver in a slot on the left hand side of the stop motion and give it a sharp thump down, it worked for me for years, the only problem you may have is if you do not have any slots or grooves to put the screwdriver in.
