I decided to do some lettering on my arm, so I set all my stuff up, but my machine started to run without my foot on the pedal so I pressed the foot pedal and it turned off, released my foot and it started up again. I tried my spare pedal that did the same, tried different machines and it still happens. Everything thing worked fine last week, any ideas?????

You will have to have a look inside the power supply. Obviously a piece of soulder has come free and it crossing a "normally closed" connection and causing it to be always open.
Thats my theory and im sticking to it! :icon_cheesygrin:
