Thanks for your answer over on the console assembly page. You recommended look at the switch, I took it off and the metal was in pieces. I touch the wires together and the machine starts! I will order a new switch, question is, how does it work? I don't see how anything would open the switch, its not attached to the moving part of the latch handle, only the plastic posts on the latch assembly. I am worried that I will not put the new one on correctly, so some knowledge would do me some good. Thanks.

ANSWER Hello Dave. When the door is closed, the latch closes the switch 8269209, to make the two wires come together and close the circuit.
