ok you may have a bad switch in this, it looked it up and they say there no longer availible, Part 557033this is the safety switch and I believe this is your problem. they discontinued these. but its located towards the back inside behind the drawer, check and make sure this is good ,if its bad it wont run. also make sure you didnt bend the little arm on it maybe its to far in so when you clothe drawer its not hitting the switch. thanks Bryan
