Thank you both
for the info/advice - I'm really not wanting to spend over $200 for a part for a machine that may come up with yet other
issues still. Was hoping someone may have a simpler (and cheaper) 'fix' idea. Machine is already 7 years old - at this point, guess I just better 'wrap my head around' having to buy something new
. Things really have to change in our society - it's not OK that you have to spend sooo much money for things that have a 'shelf life' of so few years....same thing going on with computers!!
