Cascade CE120SM sewing machine

Cascade CE120SM sewing machine
I have a Cascade CE120SM sewing machine which I purchased from the Warehouse about six years ago.  I have been unable to use it because it seems to seize up or jam up whenever I try to use it. Have done everything in the manual to make it go incl. oil in the designated places.  It seems there might be something wrong with the feeder/bobbin area as the needle seems to get jammed up where the bobbin is when I start the machine going.  Have done everything according to the manual but still no luck.

Is it something I am (still ) doing wrong or is it an actual problem with the machine?
