Thank you! That machine has a line filter that, as the name implies, filters the incoming line voltage. Have you verified that it is providing power out to the control?

No, do you have a meter to test for voltage at the control board?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No. I will have to find one to borrow. I did have several things checked out and found a chared place on the circuit board. So I do know it needed to be replaced. Beyond that, I'm at a total loss.

The line filter is shown at the link below.

See the attached page. The red arrows show where you should have 120 VAC if you can test with a meter. If no voltage at either of those points, replace the filter (if no voltage at the lower arrows) or check for wiring issues if no voltage at the upper arrows.

Let me know what you find with that voltage or if you have any questions at all!
