Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

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.

Likely old oil and lint forming "glue" in the mechanism....suggest a General Service if you are not willing to clean this yourself, or more than 2 years since last service

My kenmore 12 stitch was stuck in reverse. My friend used to work with a repair man, she said to open bottom some times thread is bound up, and may need oiled. My husband checked and found a bunch of lint and dust, he removed it and oiled it. My machine now works like new. Also sometimes the spring that operates reverse button can break or come loose. Good Luck!
