Question about Sewing Machines
When the mechanism is jammed or needs an abnormal effort to move the motor needs more power and current. This high current is detected and the error message triggered. The motor is locked because that high current would fry the motor if left for long - safety measure.
You must find out what is preventing the mechanism from turning: it might be a piece of string from the bobbin that got caught on the shaft, it might be that the mechanism needs lubricating or on of the reciprocating arms got loose because one of their locking pins failed. For that the machine must be dismantled to access the mechanism - if you have never done this before then it's time to take it to a repair shop. In the mean time do not try to start it, you will only make the damage greater.
