The problem is the lid switch. This repair usually runs about 100.00 to 150.00 for a service person to come out and install a new one.

Personal opinion. Yes they are worth the repair.

the only problem with your answer is that the lid was open and shut when i tried to run the machine so would it still be the same switch? and i am pretty handy do you think i could buy the part and do it myself?

Ok what I have done is upload the service manual for your unit. It has all the diagnostic proceedures and is clearly illustrated.
You can get it by clicking here.

To download this file:

On the first page scroll down to the bottom and select "FREE"

On the next page enter the letters in the box and select "download"

Save the file to your hard drive and open it with a .pdf reader. I recommend FoxIt reader. ( Its smaller than adobe and no spyware.
If there is something in the manual that you do not understand just post here, and I will walk you through the proceedure.

Thank you for the accept.
