I have the Thompson PW400. I know this sounds like too simple of a solution, but it actually happened to us. We accidentally plugged the machine cord into the wall outlet. Are you plugging the cord attached to the machine directly into a wall outlet or extension cord? The second part of the cord has two plugs on it, one for a light and the other for the motor. If you aren't plugging the machine cord directly into the plug marked "motor" the machine will start up immediately running at top speed. Hope that solves your problem.

I have a Thompson walking foot machine. How do I change it to the zipper foot?

If it is a walking foot machine, you are pretty much limited to using the walking foot. That doesn't mean you can't sew on a zipper with the walking foot, you'd just have to accommodate using the walking foot (ie if one side of the foot is narrower, place the zipper teeth on that side. It may not sew right up close to the zipper, but should still be useful). Unless there is a specific zipper foot made for your machine, it's not likely you will find one that will work.

Where can I buy an electrical supply and foot control for a Thompson Mini Walking foot Model PW 201

Almost any dealer will sell a replacement part for the sailrite. Its a standard type controller, the cost is 40-80 depending on the quality of the controller and cord. Take the machine in the shop and try to be sure its a correct fit. Sailrite has a mail service as well.

When I plug my Thompson mini walking serwing machine in it's running. How do I turn it off?

Undoi the foot control and you will see a small square thing called a suppressor, take it out because it has probably blown, you do not need to replace it.
