  • I'm not familiar with that brand, but maybe this will help:

    There should always be a foot or knee pedle/lever or a foot tredle or hand crank (really old). But the machine should not just go when it gets power. Something is missing and/or broken. I recommend you find a repair shop in your area that is familiar with that brand.
