Try clearing out all of your lint, pieces of thread and debris from the bobbin area. If that doesn't work, then you may need to have your machine cleaned. I had the same problem with my machine, and took it to my repair guy. He told me that the mechanism of the machine was packed tight with lint and "stuff" that had worked in. After a thorough cleaning, the machine ran like new.
You may also want to try to completely unthread the machine and rethread it (both top and bobbin). Sometimes that works.

Slacken the stop motion as if to wind a bobbin and press on the foot control, if the motor runs really fast then you have either thread stuck in the bobbin case area or you may need to oil the machine
