Hiya,

When the dial is clicking round, it should be flashing a fault code to you.

.

Count the flashes between pauses and let me know how many.

.

Ensure you use the reset dot, not the one at 12 o'clock area.

.

Thanks

I get 2 ordinary 1second flashes and then rapid flash then back to 1/second no repeat of flashes .reset at dot at 7o'clock

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

It's the repeating code I need.

When the dial starts clicking round, it flashes a code (or should do).

It shouldn't change from 2 to 1 or constant, it simply repeats the code.

.

If there's no code, check the carbon brushes on the motor.

.

Thanks

The dial no longer self rotates . Its on setting 8 .turned on. 2 ordinary flash then 3 rapid then constant light but no activity .previously it was constant filled then drained and started rotation with 1/second flash .rapid flash only displayed at reset or restart.

Hiya,

As I keep posting, it's only the flashes when the dial rotates that indicate an error code.

.

If it now just sits, there, check the carbon brushes in the motor.

.

Thanks

moving again (kink is water supply) dial turning ….2 flashes long period 2 flashes repeat

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

Thanks for that.

 

.

2 flashes indicates a fault with the motor circuit.

Once again, check the carbon brushes on the motor.

If they've broken or worn out, replace them.

.

If they are ok, then you have a faulty motor and/or control board.

.

Let me know what you find.

Hope this helps

Thanks
