I can't remember how long I have had it but no more than 2 years. Yes, it turns on and sounds very loud and feels hot.
I have just tried it again and am embarrassed to say that it appears to have cleared! But that is good news; it cost me some money but I now know this site is around.
Can I ask you to take a moment and rate my responses so far? Please use the smiley faces / stars, which you should now see. Please remember you are rating me personally, not the website or the problems you have had with this machine.This will not close your question and you can still come back to me if you need more helpThanksRob
