Singer Sewing Machine Runs When Turned On

My new to me, Singer 6268 sewing machine, will automatically start when turned on and run very fast! The foot pedal is air?, and even when the pedal is disconnected the machine still starts when switched on. So, the pedal is not the issue. I have gotten underneath and found dust, pins, and needles. I cleaned out all of the debris to no avail. Any other ideas? I'm rather mechanical and ready to sew. So which motor apparatus do I dismantle?

There is a piece called the capacitor in the foot pedal. You can remove it and it will solve your problem.
