Unit will not go on.
Without actually seeing the unit I can tell you the power cord that you plug into the wall, the first thing that happens is the hot a/c wire (black) solders to a fuse at the bottom of the unit into a pc board. Then on the load side of the fuse a (red) wire travels up to the top of the unit and is series through 2 micro switches. The first switch is to monitor the collector grid that is the part you pull in on the lever at the handle to remove and clean about every 2 weeks. Then from that switch still at the top of the unit the (red) wire travels around to the back of the unit and that switch monitors the rear back cover to be in place. From there it goes back down to the bottom of the unit into the circuit control board. Enough said about the power lead. I am sorry if I am a little technical, but that is the only way I know how to help you. I have been an electrician/elect tech for over 37 years. Now with all that being mentioned remember I told you about the soldered in fuse, well its been my experience over the years that if the manufacturer wanted you to change that fuse easy it would not have been soldered. What I am saying is that if it is blown, it is well beyond the scope of the end user to repair. Some things to look for is back cover and grid collector seated properly. Then you could check switches for broken wiring or maybe a switch is misaligned. This requires some disassembly if your not sure of yourself there three levers you can choose from when attacking this unit A,B,&C. It is best to use lever b and do not attempt tearing it down if you do not trust your working on it. I hope this might help you this the best i can do without tearing into unit myself.
