Thanks - I was looking through the DIYs on other models and completely agree. High chance of major screw ups! I think I'll have this guy look at it and see what he can do without removal and go from there. I need this fixed though

Regarding the poster who mentioned the senors may not have gone off because of the ropes, you may be right, but given the photographic evidenced where she grinded the rope on the senor, it should've gone off in this instance!
