Something has caused the power circuit to the motor to close. Unless you have some electrical skills, my advice is to take it to a sewing machine repair shop.

With a defect this dangerous there could even end up being a product recall and/or a class action law suit. A run away tool, even a sowing machine, that can cause severe injuries needs to be reported. Consumer's Reports might be interested in knowing about it.

Looking at some of the websites featuring that machine, they haven't been very complimentary about it !

What happens when you DO plug the foot pedal in ?

It really needs to be taken to a repair shop I'm afraid.
