Did it jam while stitching, or after a long period of no use, so the handwheel just does not turn ?

If the former, look here for notes on how to untangle the mess.

If it just won't move at all after some long time without use,

Have a vacuum cleaner and small brush ready when you...

Take the base off, there may be a load of lint, so be careful where you choose to do this !

Once you clear out all the loose and clinging old oil and lint "clag" can use methylated spirit or similar ethanol based solvent......Use a penetrating spray luricant sparingly amongst the metalwork of the lower shaft and cams.

Try a little movement of the handwheel back and forth without forcing anything too much, sometimes it will free up quickly, if not, put the kettle on, have a nice cup of tea and come back in 30mins and give handwheel a bit more of a go as above.if this still won't seem to improve, you may find you need to allow the penetrating lube to do its work for longer....try overnight....I have had to wait for up to 3 days on an old overlocker that lived in a damp garage near the coast before any signs of life came.

If you need more detail, or this is not getting to your problem, post again and give an update or a more detailed description of what happened when the event occured
