I had the same problem straight out of the box. I decided to buy a new machine and came across the 4166. It had more than enough functions and seemed to run smoothly. I too have problems with the bobbin not threading so I took it back into the store thinking I was doing something wrong. The saleswoman had the same problem. I was going to exchange it for another but before leaving I wanted to check to see if it worked. Again, same problem so I left without a machine. I spoke to the owner only to be told that 30% Singer machines are lemons and have to be returned for servicing because they don't work from the start. This is a waste of money and time.
The only suggestion I can offer is to either forget about the machine or take it into be serviced.

Rotating the hand wheel will not move them. The lever should slide back from whence it came. Make sure you don't have the needle down among the dogs before you try to move it. The presser foot should also be raised first.
Perhaps something has fallen down there. Try sucking with hoover as perhaps a broken needle has slipped down. Or a tiny bit of machine oil might help move them.

It's stuck inside. Open it up so you can see inside the bottom, look for the feed dog mechanism and you'll find where length of step is varied, this is where the reversing takes place too. Tapping gently and oiling will free it up.
