you will most likely find that just adjusting the stitch length and width controls for a while will correct the problem (if the machine has been sitting idle for some time the stepper motor linkages seem to stiffen up a bit but i have good success with continual adjustment until they free-up.
also try switching machine off and on again to ensure it resets correctly.
the combination of both above fixes works 95% of the time - otherwise, as you mentioned circuit board and or stepper motor replacement may be necessary (however if both length and width are playing up it is unlikely to be an electrical fault).

So is the stitch length now back on 2.5 for a normal straight stitch?
Or have you perhaps put it into a buttonhole sequence or something where it is sewing in the same spot.
Or have the feed dogs been disengaged accidentally, this would also mean no forward motion during stitching. Can you run it slowly, no thread, no presser foot and see if the feed dogs are going through their normal up and backwards movement to check this?
Have you got the manual to trouble shoot and find how to renegage the feed dogs if this is the cause. Sometimes it is a slide mechanicsm on the free arm or at the back of the main sewing area.
