It's about 2-3 years old.
I've already tried this - I should have mentioned it. The second time that I got the machine to work, I left it disconnected overnight. That trick is not working this time though.
I ordered the part and I expect it to arrive on Saturday.
Will I be able to contact you then?
I replaced the main console board and the machine is almost exactly as it was before.
From switching on at the wall, you have to rotate the knob about one full turn and you can then see the backlight is on (as before) but nothing else. If the dial is left on a setting, e.g. 40 degrees, for a variable amount of time the display/lights power up and the start button flashes, i.e. working normally. As soon as power is removed or even the dial is returned to off, the problem starts again.
Unfortunately the board cost £200 which is comparable with a cheap machine, I just thought it would be better to replace the board rather than have to get a new machine in. Now I really don't know what to do.
Hi Michael. I'm not sure what you meant by "Its also possible they sent you the same one back". I didn't send them my old board.
Regarding a bad connection, I have fiddled with as many wires as I can possibly see to try and see a response, but nothing.
Do you think eSpares will take the board back even though I have used it? I'm not sure about this....
I will try this.
All the best,
