Usually pedals possess a variable rheostat controller that react with the action of your foot. If it fails to function normally, it suggests that a short circuit has occurred. Generally, that means an internal wire or contact opens up and stops all further activity as you mentioned. The best bet is to take the machine to your local sewing machine dealer for repairs.

A lot of machines have a speed control, either on the machine or the foot control. I looked thru the manual and did not find anything about speed control. Look under the foot control for a screw that may have a + and - . Otherwise, you may want to take it back to see if service can adjust it for you.

There are a number of things that could cause this.
Needle installed with flat in the wrong direction.
Excessive thread tension,top or bottom.
Lack of lubrication. If the machine can do anything more than a straight stitch the mechanism can gum up and not move the needle correctly.
Here is a link to threading directions.

it sounds like it would be a good time to take the sewing machine in for service and see if there is a timing problem.

it's the same size as a night light bulb. That's how I replaced mine. You can pick one up at any hardware or dept store.

necchi's are good sewing machines, I personally own 2 necchi's,
and I've never had any problems with them and I've had them for around 10 years, here is what I suggest
use a new needle--one that is for the fabric your sewing
rethread the machine top and bobbin--use every thread guide
try a different bobbin
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
call a sewing machine repair shop in your area and ask them how
much a necchi sewing machine is worth or check on ebay and see
what they are selling for.
since you inherited the sewing machine,, having the machine
serviced completely would be a good idea, that way they can check
to see if the grease and oil that the gears and parts use is fresh or
needs to be replaced and it's very important the grease and oil are in
good condition.
and they can make sure the machine's is timed correctly
ask how much a tune up cost for a sewing machine and then
you'll have to decide if the price is what you want to pay.

also since the sewing machine is doing repeat loops from the bobbin
adjust the top thread tension just a little at a time till the stitch looks
normal on a scrap piece of fabric
if you don't have a manual on the sewing machine let me know & I'll try
to find you one.
I've been sewing for 30 years, and like I said I have 2 necchi's already
and I had one other one before these 2 that I have now and it lasted me
for around 15 years and I wore it out making clothes.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy or except another necchi because I know
they are good machines.
I have a mechanical and a electronic necchi and my husband uses the
electronic one when he makes quilts.
good luck on your decision
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

If your Necchi has an external motor, take the belt off and run it.... is the motor sluggish? If so... that's where you start. motors need to be oiled, typically with oil and grease ports on either end of the motor housing.

If the motor spins up nicely,... you need to clean and oil the rest of the machine. Start underneath if the bottom workings are exposed, oil all the places where metal joins metal. Then do the bobbin and feed dog area... then look along the top and sides for oil parts.. give them a drop or two...Finally, see if you can get into the head where the take up lever and such are... oil the needle bar, presser foot bar, etc.

It's a dirty job... so prepare a good space for your machine. Liquid Wrench will help you free up gunked up and rusty parts. Fine grade steel wool (0000) and Cotton swabs help.

Good luck
