Hi Barry,
do you have a meter for testing?
This could be a bad wire but unfortunately this is a sign of a bad main control board.
Can help you troubleshoot this if you have the tools and equipment but its most likely in need of a new main board.
Did you need a source for that?
99 % of the time this failure is a a bad main board.
I will stick with you until this is fixed and help anyway I can with tech questions on it its pretty easy to do, but since since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you Barry and have a great day!
