It keeps sewing sometimes fast sometimes slow and sometimes as soon as I turn the machine on.

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

Inside the foot control is a component called a supressor.......it is there to reduce or stop the "crackle" interference you may have on TV & Radio when using the machine.
It is not necessary for the functioning of the machine, but when it fails, or burns out, there is generally an acrid smell of burned plastic.....then it runs on by itself and you need to turn it off at the switch to stop it.
Best suggestion if you are not comfortable about opening electrical items, is to take it to a Janome service centre and tell them exactly what is wrong, as described above.. "a burned out suppressor, and the machine now runs by itself"
They ought to be able to do this for very little money really, it is a 2 minute job.......if it has been a while since the last service, you may wish to consider having it all done at the same time, depends on usage and budget in the end.
Let us all know how you get on.

I've had the Lo come on my screen of my sewing machine also, but normally when I turned it off it corrected the jam up.
Lo- A button is pressed when the machine halts due to a overload
wait 15 seconds to recover
if thread jamming causes the overload, remove the tangled thread
check the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
also check to see if the bobbin is warped
check you needle to see if it's bent-roll on a flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if it's blunt it makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
let me know if these suggestions help
