I cannot turn the clutch knob on my kenmore sewing machine. It happened when I was sewing last night. A needle got stuck and I removed it.

I have a kenmore sewing machine model #385.11608 which I have had and used for at least 25 years now with little problems. Last night I was sewing when my needle got stuck in the feed dogs. I managed to remove it by loosening the screw. I also took out the bobbin case and assembly. The needle was bent so I threw it away. Then I attempted to turn the clutch knob so that I could raise up the thing and put in a new needle but it would only turn about a 1/4 of an inch. So the thing would not go up so that I can put in a new needle. I also cannot replace the bobbin case and assembly.
