    Since you have never soldered a wire before (and probably don't have a soldering iron), I would advise that you find someone who can fix this for you, using the appropriate wire gauge for this application.

    Are you sure that there should be a wire between the two areas that you circled in your picture?

    I'm somewhat nervous that someone might give you incorrect information, with the potential of causing an electrical fire, so I'm closing this thread.
