You don't say how long it's been since it didn't work. Guessing that this is a reel that you just picked up. Try breaking it down completely. Take the spool off. Take the side plate off. Don't force the handle. You could end up damaging it beyond repair. Check the shaft. Turn the spinning/bail mechanism. Watch to see if the shaft and gear drive turns. Check the shaft of the handle. All are points of corrosion. While you're at it if you get it unstuck then, I'd suggest changing out the drag too. Clean and grease all areas.
I purchased a Daiwa BG Saltwater BG8000, only have been able to used it once. Landed three Yellow Tail 30,50 and 72 lbs. with no problem, great reel. Only issue was getting used to the bell arm being manual, other than that I recommend this reel. Daiwa BG Reel: SmoothHard and tough anodized bodyStrong and stable pulling abilityA beauty to look at
To set the drag on the spinning reel you adjust the knob that holds the reel in place. The same knob you use to take the reel off to clean and oil. It will hold the reel in place and as you thighten it down it will increase the drag.
The letter "R" on a Shimano reel typically indicates it has a rear drag.
you should find a know on the bottom end of your reel that allows you to adjust drag tension. Just Remember to back off or loosen your drag when not using your reel to keep your drag in proper working condition.
Unless you know exacly what you are doing don't bother. It is a very complicated reel and expremely easy to put back together incorrecly. Send it off to Daiwa Sports service department. It'll either cost you £5 or nothing to have it serviced.
