SOURCE: Janome Excel 5124 reverse lever
If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.

If you bought it new and there was no manual, the dealer you bought it from or Janome themselves will give you one. Meanwhile, the smaller knob on the side of the machine (bottom one) changes the type of stitches. As you turn it, you'll see the red indicator change on the front to show which stitch has been selected. Of the 3 sliding levers on the front of the machine, the top one numbered 1-6 controls the zigzag width. The slider below it, numbered 1-4, controls the stitch length.
Also, the needle has to be in the "up" position in order for you to be able to change the stitch type. If it's down, you can either push the "up/down" button, or turn the handwheel (larger knob on side of machine).

Greetings, I experienced the same problem. Mine only ran a few stitches. Foot pressure on the foot feed was always "tension" problem in my foot.
I turned the foot feed around and upside down.
I press on the foot feed at the open end not the pivot (cord) end. This has given me much better control. Janome had no options for foot feed adjustment or replacement, but this has helped greatly. You may have to practice to get used to it
