Thanks to the support on this site, I diagnosed and fixed the problem, saving at least $150 on a service call. The manufacturer's design of this Control Bracket is so cheap. The small plastic "axel" holding the micro switch broke after about 7 years of use. It is made of thin plastic about the size of a toothpick. Gently pry off the front cover by inserting a screw driver in the slots at the bottom. Take your time and apply gentle pressure. The cover will pop out. Next, take off the micro switches and spacers connected to the old Control bracket. You will probably see a broken plastic shaft/axel that was causing the problem. Pay attention to where the parts come from, because the will need to go back in the same place on the new bracket. It would be helpful to have 3 hands for this job, but I got it done by being patient and taking my time. This site is a fantastic resource. Thanks!
