Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Does it do this spurious activation, when the foot control switch is unplugged completely before the Singer machine is switched to On?

If so, you might have something like a stuck button... but try it that way first, to be sure of what is going on.
