Default 1907 Singer 15, trying to figure out what is seized. Siggestions?

Purchased this machine a few months ago as a novice treadle person. None of the works are moving when the hand wheel knob is in operating position. Spins freely otherwise. It appears at least one part is seized, but haven't been able to remove parts to check because screws are not budging for me.
I oiled.it up, nothing. I have watched a couple of videos on how to trace the issue(s). Used power blast in areas that might be seized. I just did it again and will let it sit a day or two.
I.have a strong husband, but I fear he may force a part accidentally. Thus hoping to avoid long strings of sailor profanities.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Thanks
