Looking for advice on whether I can order a wring harness.
After being stored and transported I reconnected the machine and upon connecting to the AC outlet the power rocker switch shorted and semi-melted the connector to the back of the rocker switch. I replaced the switch but it took some engineering to get the spade lugs to align again but when I finally got power to the machine and turned on the boiler switch that switch shorted (heard an electrical sizzle and plastic burn smell) and now I have no power to the boiler.(rocker switches still test out as good) I have taken connections loose and using a multimeter tested them for continuity, tried to visually find any places that might have insulation missing an possibly grounding against the machine with no luck.
Wondering what I should try next other than strip the machine for parts? Any troubleshooting tips would be appreciated.

If you measure resistance across the power cord and both sides to ground, do you see a short as you turn the switches on? If so, disconnect one wire at a time till the short goes away. Start with the heater and other likely and easy to replace parts as you hope it's something like that.
