Exclamation SEARS Kenmore 2142 Sewing Machine foot pedal sticks ON

I have this old green Kenmore 2142 Sears 710 sewing machine.....first I had the issue with the zig zag needle position.....followed the advice here and got that fixed....

Now....the foot pedal sticks "running" and I have to unplug to stop it....
Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? ( It - pedal - also gets "EXTREMELY HOT" )

Those speed control units have a spring to keep the pedal up allow it to move down to activate motor and return to the up position to turn it off.
The spring has either broken or maybe popped out of place.
It could get warm when operation but not familiar with exactly what you have.

Might be easier to just replace the pedal.
