Question about Riccar Sewing Machines
Turn wheel until needle rises as far as it will go, Lubricate that bar inside that goes up and down above the bracket or housing that holds it, Also take note if there is a lower bracket that also needs to be oiled. Make sure you got the bushing around the turning shaft nearest the handwheel, and make sure there is not a thread wrapped around the shaft nearest the handwheel. (Behind the handwheel,)

SOURCE: Handwheel doesn't move needle
Sounds like the connection between the handwheel and the needle as disconnected (needle bar). It appears from the picture that this is a version of a mass-market product geared for kids/very light duty sewing.
If so, you may be able to reconnect this by removing the side-cover or top-cover of the machine (if removable). The problem is going to be re-timing the needle with the hook/bobbin assembly.
If you are unable to reconnect or get the timing correct, a good local machine dealer/repair tech should be able to take care of it for you. Unfortunately, the cost of having a technician fix may be way more than you want to pay or the machine is worth.
Best of luck with your repair,

my suggestion is that the machine needs to be serviced at a sewing machine shop, because for 1.it's not responding 2. it used & you don't know when the last time it was serviced 3.something is wrong with the machine.
hopefully there are no broken parts, but having the machine serviced will tell that.
as for a manual
Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w510 ) & click search
