PC35AF-M - don't want to stop rewinding

Hi,
I have a problem with my camera. I bought a used PC35AF-M and initially everything was ok. I used one roll, then loaded another one. Halfway through the second roll, the camera suddenly started rewinding the film. Only removing the battery stops this process.
What could be the reason?
Is it repairable?

Once the film has fully rewound, can you not just open the back ? I am always wary of removing batteries from equipment which is turned on but malfunctioning. Sadly, the cost of any repair (except DIY) would probably be greater than the cost of replacing the camera.

I can open it and then the rewinding stops, but when I close it again it continues rewinding.
DIY is possible on my side, but I would have to know the cause and any damaged parts may be the cause

Why not open it and remove the film cassette ? With nothing to rewind, would it still try ?

The film is already out. Even though it is removed, the engine continues to rewind.

Considering you can get a replacement from Ebay for 35, it may be worthwhile cutting your losses and moving on.
