Singer Sewing Machine Locked Up

I have a Singer Esteem sewing machine that recently froze up. The hand wheel does not turn. I have checked for errant threads in the bobbin case as well as the spool threading areas. Any ideas what could be wrong?

If you have removed the threads than a gear or lever might have broken. You need a repairperson to do this.

Here are some ideas:
The thread is not in the uptake lever. Check to be sure.

Your bobbin winder is stuck in the "locked" position.

Your machine has a clutch. Some older machines have a clutch that must be released.

Your machine just needs to be oiled.
