Question about Sewing Machines
You might try Tri-flow superior lubricant. Take the lid off machine. put the oil on overnight - possibly use a little heat from a hair dryer. The ridges of the wheel can be pushed slightly with a screwdriver (at an angle on front of machine). I am working on one now.

DO NOT TRY TO FORCE THIS
If penetrating lubricant left overnight does nort resolve this, then live with it and.....Leave it alone.....it happens through lack of use and has become seized through electrolytic action of the steel and aluminium.
I had one in the workshop last week and when the wheel broke, that was the end, because it is the lynchpin to all other movement of the needle arm. To replace the plastic wheel requires that it move, so it is a hopeless scenario....just learn to live with the needle where it is and think about replacing the machine eventually, we all need to look forward to retirement.
