My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.

Inspect this wiring to where it leads to to see if any shorts are found with the wiring itself needing repaired or replaced.I have seen before where the wiring being shorted or damaged will cause a short like this here needing repaired and this sounds like the cause here.If a fault is found it will need repaired.If this is checked and found o.k. let me know.

Thanks Pete
