probably its your lid switch , or start switch, does it fill with water? do you have a volt meter and know how to use it? let me know Bryan, heres a diagram of lid switch and top of machine,
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No, it doesn't fill with water and it doesn't even turn on. I don't have a volt meter but I can get one.
