    Take a look in the Resource section on this site for your machine manual and wiring schematics and you will also find the location of those two relays in the parts section of the manual. They should be very close to one another.

    Good luck!


    Is this it? sorry about my horrid paint skills, ha.

Could be a relay, could be a failed contactor. If you have zero electrical knowledge, us suggesting things is is little useless. However if you know someone handy in such things. Have him post here then we can easily figure it out.
    I'll get it figured out I think. I do appreciate your help though buddy.

    so should I just blast this out with compressed air? I cant find directions in the tech manual on how to test this relay? How can I test it to find out if its bad?

    Well, I would take the relay out, disassemble, refurbish the contacts and of course blow all foreign material out of this unit, IF it is the source of the "buzzing".

    Ok guys got it all figured out preciate ya 7A749...

    the buzzing ended up being the cooling line solenoid but it was not the source of the absent voltage output. That ended up being the PC1 which was loose enough to not make full contact in the terminal. Unit is working flawlessly now. thanks everyone for the help!
