Same thing happened to my CE-200. It would only stitch one stitch at a time or else it would run full speed. My husband made an adjustment through a small hole on the back of the pedal and it now works much better. The adjustment hole apparently allows you to set the sensitivity of the electronics inside the pedal. He turned it slightly toward the + direction. It took a couple of small adjustments to get it to work nearly normal again.

I have a Singer Merritt 4530. I don't know if the foot pedal works the same way on your model, but on mine it is held together not by screws or latches, but simply by white plastic rods that serve as hinges. These rods have a hole drilled in their center, presumably so some special tool can be used to pull them out. Lacking a special tool, I glued a nail into the hole, and once the glue dries you can pull the nail and pull the rod out with it. The rod is about an inch long and held in place merely by friction - no glue or screw threads. Once one rod is removed, you should be able to slide the pedal off of the rod on the other side, though that might have only worked because some of the plastic housing was cracked on mine. If you don't want to take the time to test that, just glue a nail into both rods and pull them both out.
Once you get the pedal open, mine had a giant white cylinder that looks kind of like a battery or a fuse. This thing was getting very hot the longer the pedal was left plugged in. I read on many web sites that this object can cause overheating or short circuit the pedal so it's always sewing. It's called a suppressor and can be safely thrown away. I haven't found an explanation for precisely what it does or why it can be safely thrown away, but I theorize it's a surge suppressor and that most modern wiring isn't going to surge too much. I got rid of it and the pedal still works and doesn't overheat. It may be safest to plug the machine into a surge-protected power strip once the suppressor is gone - just my theory.
