Make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward and the stitch length is the highest level that it can go. If that doesn't make it go forward, you will have to use the old hair dryer trick. Take the top lid of the machine off and heat the inside with a heated hairdryer. Work the stitch length and the reverse until it frees up.

SOURCE: backward stitching
Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

The cam stack can come out quite easily but putting it back in has some danger to it. The screw that holds the mechanism guide pin is somewhat tricky to get back in and if you cross the threads you've ruined your machine because the part is no longer available that the srew goes through. If you cross the threads it pitches the guide and your dial on the front of the machine that selects the different stitches won't work. If you shine a light in the back of the machine you can see it the camstack is cracked.

Make sure that the reverse button isn't stuck inside. if all else fails, go back to sears and have them look at it.
