Hi Ellen and thank you for that information.
This can be one of many things but from what you mentioned. Unfortunately the main control board is bad and has a direct short.
Its easy to replace and only requires a few simple basic hand tools, but its a bit pricey depending on your region.
The best place for price and reliability to get that main control board is Esapres I have included their contact info for your convenience below.
I will stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
No additional cost to you to rate.
Thank you Ellen and have a great day!
