the only number i can see is a sticker that says "WIS24140GB"
Does that look correct?
the filter was stuck - i had to dismantle it and i cleaned out a load of hair clips and a key !!
ive put it back together, the filter turns now but still no sign of power to the machine
I will pop out and buy a multimeter
ive removed the control panel
I can see the back of the green circuit board - it doesnt look like there are any "blown tracks" but im not completely sure what they would look like
Ive checked the fuse at the plug and it fine.
If the filter was stuck - why would that blow something/ cause a problem with the electricity?
First point is to read the instructions for the particular type of multimeter you obtain...Whilst the appliance is unplugged from the mains.
Using the 200ohms setting you need to test from the Live pin on the plug to the point that it reaches the board... If you get a reading then do the same on the Neutral pin to the point that it reaches its connection point on the board...If you do not get a reading on either of those two, you need to backtrack the wiring to the point where you do have a reading.Let me know what you find
power is definately getting to the circuit board i can see 240v on my multimeter. no idea how to test the exit of the board
if the board needs replacing, i guess i may as well buy a new machine !?
ps - the little plug going into the circuit board has 2x red wires, one is live the other is not - is this expected ?
ahh so i should have been testing across the 2x red wires
i was scared to do that
i used a neutral at the source and tested each of the red wires in turn
