Does the handwheel turn freely. If hard to turn then I suspect the main bearings need to be freed up and relubricated. A sewing machine has a rotating shaft something like an engine crankshaft with a front and rear bearing to hold it in position. Various other "cranks" attach to this rotating shaft. From the various problem reports I've seen and from having my own machine freeze up, it appears this Viking model family is prone to this problem after some number of years of use. The motor overheating is simply the side effect of the problem.
There is a shear pin that is broken.it looks like a bolt that is designed too break if you hit something that is hard and won,t break up.while it is not running rotate the side of the auger that is not turning untill the holes in the auger and the shaft line up then put new shear pin through auger and shaft.

Not quite sure what you mean about rotating shaft, but if you take the bread pan out of the machine and try to turn the paddle by hand and it doesn't move, then the sealed bearing in the bread pan is jammed or broken. Try filling it up with warm water and soaking it for a while. If it doesn't budge after a few tries then the bearing is broken and a new bread pan is needed. If on the other hand it does move, keep the pan out and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and check to see if the motor shaft is turning. If not then the belt inside the machine is snapped, or fell off, or the motor is broken. Good Luck...Hank
The belt pully on the motor has a set screw that tends to get loose causing the pully to change position on the shaft. Position the pully on the shaft (move up or down) for better alignment with the pully on the rotating array pully and tighten the set screw..
