I knocked over my Whispure 510 air purifier
and now it doesn't turn on. No power, no noises, no nothing (yes, it's plugged into a socket, yes, the socket works). Is there any hope? Can I fix it myself? Is there a website or book that can teach me how to do this?

Right now, it's dead dead dead. I'm hoping that some wire came loose in the fall and i can save it by opening it up, finding the magic wire, and reattaching it. Is this a thing?
Um, I have no electrical experience, but I am generally handy, and I have nothing to lose by trying, I don't think (as long as I unplug it first, which i will, no worries).
Can anybody help me with a cure for my air purifier please? I'm looking for websites or videos that can help me fix this myself. I realize an electrician is an option, but I am more interested in trying this one alone.
