Unplugged the machine.
Removed four screws from the top of the machine to uncover the top of the machine.
Pulled the leads off the broken switch.
In the future I will make a note of which lead goes where. There are only two ways.
Went to and found the part in less than a minute by using their part finder.
Placed the switch through the original opening in the machine and reattached the leads.
Reattached the cover. Plugged the machine back in. Turned the switch and it started right up.
