Hello,Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today. It's worth at least getting the cover off the side to check the fuse and board/wiring to make sure the connections are tight. It's most likely not the fuse but still need to remove the cover to check, until doing some basic first checks it is going to be hard to know the problem. I do completely understand your point of view though, you will want to weigh in on if you wish to get involved with it, once you start I am sure you will not want to waste that time by finding half way in that you do not want to mess with it and thus highly consider up front worst case, this way anything less than worst case is better.
