Do you have a digital voltmeter, and are you acquainted with its use? If so, remove the electric power, and measure across pin J7 and J8. If you read no open circuit, reapply the electric power, and measure the pins again for the presence of 120 volts a.c. Please let me know what you find. Thank you.
