I just took apart my machine to change the lid switch out and there's something that concerns me; the neutral (white) wiring part of the receptacle is fried. (I knew something went wrong the other day when i smelt that particular smell right before the machine stopped working) so my question is what would cause this? Is this just a normal manner in which these switches burn out or could this be an implication of something else, such as issue with the motor?
ANSWER Hello Tera. That is usually a sign of a direct short or a power surge to the unit. You need to look for a hot wire touching ground.
