Sewing Machine Does Not Sew in Reverse?

My Kenmore 385.17324 no longer stitches in reverse. The lever presses down and springs back up, but the reverse action does not engage. After removing the bottom of the machine and visually inspecting it there was no reverse action. Is this something I can fix? How?

The simple thing to do is to make sure that it is cleaned out of debris, like - string, fabric, and build up dust, this can hinder your machine function , underneath and bobbin housing. Other things that could be happening is the Back Level may be broken. Another is the Back Stitch Spring could be bent. This repair could be very complex, take to a sewing machine Technician .
