I am a woman (small) very low on funds and could not see myself spending $140 plus parts. I found your website and was able to determine the cause of the problem, since it did not appear the solution would be too difficult to accomplish I ordered the two parts that could be causing the problem. The parts were delivered in 2 days and I was able to do the repair in less than 15 mins I only used the lid switch. The old parts do just snap out and you snap the new one in. Thank you so much for your site. In these economic times you are a godsend.
Keep up the great work and again thank you!
