Hi Mr K Crellin
Welcome to Just answer
Does it also make any loud or different sounds at the moment ?
Nothing - seems dead apart from brief display at switch on.
so it comes up for a few seconds and then fades away or works for minutes .. ?
Display shows for just a second or two (flashing zeros) - no power.
and was it a loud pop or just a faint one ?
as it runs for few seconds then stops it may be a short circuit in the main control board...looking at the age of this unit it is better to buy a new one instead of going for a repair
a new circuit board will cost you around £95 and is not easily available
A similar appliance today costs over £700. Do you still advise new rather than repair?

This one might work for a year or so..thats why I recommend buying a new one
OK. Twelve years is a good run.
