Default Help reverse spring dislodged and selector dial won't turn

Hi all,

I recently picked up a JcPenney 6501 machine. It made stitches but didn't reverse. All of a sudden the machine selectors dial wouldn't turn all the way and now it only makes one stitch out of 14. I tried having it repaired and the shop told me it was a throw away because the gear was cracked. I don't believe it is a throw away, as it sewed before the reverse spring dislodged. My question is how do I remove the top layer to access the second layer where I can reach the spring?

Ps. Tried to upload photos and it never works.
