Kenmore Sewing Machine Needle Won't Move

The wheel turns on my Kenmore 1251 sewing machine, but the needle does not go up and down. What needs fixing and how can I do it?

This isn't a fix you can do at home - the problem could be anything from a bit of fluff or thread lint caught in a part of the bobbin area you'll not be able to reach without specialty tools, to a worn or broken bobbin gear - another fix you can't do at home.

Really, the best thing is to take this to a professional. Whatever you do, DO NOT used 'canned air' in an effort to blast the possible lint out of the casing or gear, you really will only make matters worse.
