Is the machine stitching at all? Visually inspect the machine - are there any parts missing??? Cord ok, etc??? First make sure it is cleaned and oiled. When I refurb one, I start with the bobbin area. I take it apart and clean, clean, clean. I've seen lint cakes in those machines more than any others. Once that is clean I take apart the tension, clean and make sure it is reassembled correctly. Then everything else gets cleaned and oiled. Then I sew test by turning it by hand. If the motor doesn't work I have spares but usually the motor is fine. If the motor isn't fine you can do the mentioned above stuff or you could buy a spoked wheel and a hand crank attachment from Sew-classic. Those little machines make a really nice hand crank.
