GBC Artic Titan 165 - Stop doesn't work - Safety sensors don't work - any help?

When powered on, it runs continually...
1) stop button doesn't stop it
2) something in front of safety sensors doesn't stop it

The yellow stop button light stays lit, the run button lights (and clicks) when pressed, but goes off as soon as released.
When the stop button is pressed, nothing changes, it doesn't click and it continues running.

I checked connections, and everything seems fine.

One thing that I did notice on the main board are some relay switches ? (not sure if that is what they're called)... but they are switches with fine copper wire coiled underneath, with a clear plastic cover.
There is one towards the front which clicks closed (on) when you press the foot switch, and (2) towards the back (pictured).
The one on the right clicks closed (on) when you press the run button, but the one on the left never clicks closed (on) when anything is pressed, but it looks like it isn't released all the way either (it's almost closed).

Any ideas ?

I know this was posted long ago! But, my arctic titan has the exact same issue. What did you find was the problem/resolution?
Thanks,

probably just a shorted switching transistor.
someone with a little electronic experience or someone from a tv repair shop (are there any anymore? i feel like i am telling you to find someone who shoes horses)can look for a shorted
transistor

Thanks for the help! I had the main board fixed at a local electronics shop. NOW, the machine works good again, BUT the stop switch stays on. I have to hold down the run button or keep my foot on the foot peddle or machine just stops.
The switch panel is new since I replaced that first trying to fix my first problem. Any suggestions on this one?

So not a fix, but I've rigged a 3" core between the pedal and the top cover (the 'safety' plate that keeps you from stepping accidentally, my previous one didn't have it, so I had to position it just so under the frame next to the wheels) when running the printer in reverse to spin off a bunch of backing to reclaim a core. As long as you have easy access to the power cord/emergency stop button, you should be fine.

Actually, is the big red E stop engaged?
