Thank you, Linda.... I would try it but it's completely locked. I can't even get it to a single stitch. Didn't know about starting out with needle down though.. will keep that in mind if it ever gets fixed! Thank you for the suggestion :)
First thing I did this morning was Youtube.. didn't have much luck. It is a Singer Ingenuity, I will have a look at the manual again, good suggestion. I feel like it shouldn't be messing up like this.. but I bought it used so go figure :(

Yep, I took the cover off and sure enough the thread uptake was stuck inside the machine.. am going to get some oil and take it for a tune up. Thank you for your reply :)
Ipanfil- Thank you for the suggestions.. the bobbin area looks good, no loose strings or tangles that I can see. Needle is good. I'm afraid it's something on the inside. Thank you for the suggestions.
I am quite sure that it probably needs a good lube... I don't think that's the main problem though. It is just completely locked and won't rotate to do a single stitch. I'm going to get some oil as soon as I can. Thank you for reminding me!
I actually took the cover off and discovered the thread take up was stuck inside the machine- I got it loose but I'm still taking it in because something still doesn't seem right. thank you for your reply- I will keep that it mind for future problems
