Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Im so sorry that no one else has responded to you.

Apologies for my delay in replying, I only just came online and saw your question. Are you still looking for help with this?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

I kind of fixed it. I took it apart and cleaned it. But it only does it once in awhile. If I tap the pedal when it takes off, it will stop and then not do it again for a while.

Still working after you turn on without foot pedal?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Yes. I fixed it myself
