You need to take the Singer to an industrial sewing machine mechanic and find out if it is even worth trying to fix. None of what you describe should be happening. It's silly to waste any more time trying to make adjustments to something that might not be adjustable any more.

I took the Singer in to a shop on Friday and was told (without even touching it) that it would be between $300-$500 to fix not including parts . I suspect they didn't want to be bothered with it. Perhaps a servo motor might help. I did get the hand wheel to turn a bit so there's hope there, but it's probably best to return it.

A servo motor is not going to fix a bad vibration. The machine probably has a bent or broken shaft of some kind, which is why the handwheel won't turn. They were probably doing you a favor by not taking your money to try and fix it. If you can take it back, do so and keep looking for a good one.
