If it uses a universal motor (brush type) then the speed can be controlled by controlling the voltage. If it uses an induction motor then speed control can only be achieved if it is a three phase motor and by the use of an inverter.
I assume that it is a universal motor, and suggest that perhaps the controller you tried was too small and this has caused the triac to fail. (locked on full voltage and full speed)
If this is the case, you could try a higher rated controller, or replace the triac with a larger one.
