I have a Nuova Simonelli Aurelia, suddenly the machine lost power? any help

Check the breaker. It might be too much for the circuit with other appliances. If the breaker is OK, pull the plug on the wall and then count to 10 and plug back in.

I can hear the grinder on nuova simonelli try to gring, but it seems like soemthing is stuck. how can i fix this?

Remove the bean hopper and vac out all beans, then remove black cover, then 3 phillips screws, and top part of burrs should come off. Clean our chamber then reassemble. DO NOT TURN ON. Make sure middle nut in chamber spins freely, use fingers to turn, if not adjust setting to coarser, until it moves freely, then turn on grinder. All you have to do now is set your grind.

What is the proper number setting for the grinder

There isn't one, because your grind depends on the bean you are using, the temperature and so on. The best thing you can do is clear the burr chamber of beans, then turn grinder clockwise until you can no longer turn the brass fitting in the middle, then turn counter-clockwise to about 4 numbers that will give you a nice starting point to setting your grind.

When i turn the machine on and try to grind up some coffee beans, the machine makes a sound like the motor is trying to grind. when i open up the grinder lid, i can see that the grinder is spinning but...

Generally, coffee beans are oily and form a goo in these machines.  You may get lucky by first unplugging the machine, getting some copper wire (#14 or #12) and poking around in there to loosen the crud up.  If this doesn't work, the unit will have to be disassembled and cleaned.  Messy!
