Portable A/C fried connection on board

Hi, we have a barely used portable A/C unit that has fried a connector near the board. The unit is an Amcor PCMB 12000EH, the board is a Kernel GKFLJ1156A. Wondering where to get the part and if it's something my handyman can do.

Thanks!

I've replaced a board like that. It is a DIY project. The only thing is that I can't find that board on the net.

Ah, well good and bad then. I couldn't find anything on it and was hoping maybe there were other generic boards or something to substitute this one at the worst case. Called repair parts companies but nothing to suggest even. Thanks

Looking a little more closely, Infostar Technology might be the manufacturer of the board. Google them.

The board companies won't talk to you. The design is proprietary.
The website for the parent company is up for sale.... Amcorgroupusa(dot)com

I've traced the unit to a manufacturer in China but that won't be of any help.

Are you certain that barrier strip is part of the board ?
It certainly doesn't look like. It looks more like where the power cord connects.

Oh okay. Thanks for everybody's replies it all helps. It turns out that it does unscrew from the board. Anyone know where to get that or what it's even called? Maybe we'll luck out after all.

Thanks!

Barrier terminal strip. Notorious for burning up when the screws aren't fully tightened. You don't have to use that combining method. You could use butt crimps or my personal favorite.... cap crimps.

Okay thanks that's really helpful. My brother took the connections off so I can take it in to get the parts. We took pictures and made diagrams of how they connected but my husband was a little confused if he wired it right so we haven't turned it on yet. I know we sound like Keystone Cops.

Is there enough to look at to have any idea if this is correct or not?

Sorry.... I couldn't begin to comment based on that picture.

If there was a before and after.... possibly..... or a wiring diagram.
