Re: moving needle trouble
First switch off your machine and lower the needle. Try to pull your needle bar to the right and to the left. There should be a little bit of resistance but you should be able to do it. If it is tight your machine needs a service and from a qualified tecnician.
If you are able to pull it, then switch your machine on, and check if the machine initialize and the needle move to the left and stops in the centre. If not your step motor is faulty.

Try to find the exact spot on the wheel to make the needle stop. Try different spots to get the one that does not move. You may need a service. You could also remove the thread until you are ready. The needle would go up and down but without thread will not cause havoc.
in the needle plate area you'll find the feed dogs, they move the fabric forward as you sew, they should be up to sew . most sewing machine have a lever or knob that can be moved to change the feed dog position, unless then knob is broken
Remove the needle plate, you should be able to spot the broken end of needle by pulling on threads jammed underneath. If you have to use something to pick it out, be gentle. You do not want to damage the mechanism. You could always try a magnet.
If you can't figure it out, take it back to retailer. As a courtesy, they are usually pretty good at helping new owners out of a "jam".
