Make sure the clutch was not disengaged. The clutch is the little wheel inside the large wheel on the right side of the machine. When it is turned one way, the needle will move and when turned the other way, the needle will not move.

A lever or gear may be broken. You will have to take it in to be fixed.

I know that and doesn't seem to be a problem. I even cleaned inside wheel and oiled it. Anything else to try?

Check the bobbin area. The bobbin area can become congested with thread and the needle won't move.

Make sure the bobbin area is cleared of all thread. Sometimes the needle won't move if the bobbin area is overpacked with thread.
