I have an Artista 180. I have jut cleaned and lubricated it

Customer Question

I have an Artista 180. I have jut cleaned and lubricated it according to my manual instructions. It was sewing fine when I needed to turn a corner so I stopped, turned the wheel backwards one turn to adjust the stitch and the machine froze. I have turned it on and off a number of times, have tried turning the wheel but it won't budge. I even tried a pipe wrench very carefully and gave up on that quickly.
What do I do next so I can keep working on my projects?
