yes I I forgot to mention that was the first thing I did. I did have some items in there. I did do a little more research online and found that there was a recall on the thermistor that the wires may break off and cause a fire if it comes in contact with and metal parts. so I am going to call the recall center and make an appointment to have them come out. I did order the control panel and inverter just to save time. any other ideas or suggestions? and thank your for you advice and help.
