here is a download for your manual
pg 32 talks about sewing in reverse sewing.
but doesn't give much on trouble shooting other than hold the lever while sewing. If that's not the case, then I think your feed dogs are the issue. check your feed dog drop. pg 9 part 12
If you think the reverse lever is sloppy, professional action should be taken, (take it in to be repaired under warranty?)
I hope this was helpful.

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.

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

They do not drop.
The accessories with this model include a darning plate, which is a plastic shield that snaps over the feed dogs.
If you cannot find the darning plate, poke a hole for the needle in the center of an index card and tape it over the feed dogs with blue painter's tape (does not leave a residue) and set the stitch length to zero.
Be sure to use a darning foot and lower the presser foot.
