Ok pull those 2 wires off and get a jumper wire and connect them together if all is good that control panel will light up. Remember the power is on so turn the breaker off then try this Dont forget to rate me on my help in resolving this issue thank you

Are you talking about these two wires?
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

Yes those 2 black wires with the white plastic ends

What's a jumper wire? Something to check if it has power?
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

What you will be doing is get a piece of wire to attach those two black wires together placing each end in one of the wire ends this will bypass the fuse and power the machine up
