It sounds like a weak field (low current) rather than no field.  My memory 
may be playing tricks on me - but IIRC, with no field, my E15's ammeter 
and the motor barely moves.  It doesn't overspeed because it can't get 
at all with no field.  

But perhaps yours is different.

I might next try getting out the ammeter, and measuring the actual current 
the field is using.
