Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you.
This sounds like your solenoid is going bad. Sometimes it will work and others it doesn't. By jumping across it the machine will work. When you tell me that the relay is clicking it tells me that the pedal switch is working otherwise you would not get anything. The solenoid is not making contact internally all the time therefore to unit will not work.
