Customer Question

Hi
We have an old Whirlpool electric cooker with a gas hob and it has stopped working with an error code of FN26. We have switched it on/off and it started working again but it has stopped for a second time but with no error message. I would be grateful if you could advise of a solution if possible.
Kind regards.
Julie

The tenants took a phone of the screen I'll send it to you.They said the first error message was Fn26 and they then switched it off and back on and then the error changed to just Fn. it's not really too clear as the "F" is in caps and the "n" lower case, which could be a "0" without the bottom part. Will send photo. Regards. Julie

Hi MichaelYou still haven't said when the error message was for and what part to order. This is the second request, could you please answer as I am running out of time. Thank you.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi there was a site issue and my message didnt get through sorry for that.What you have is a bad main control board. That part is pretty easy to replace if you are a little handy and have soem basic hand tools, i will help you do that if you choose to do this yourself. There is no soldering required just some plug in clips. I recommend taking a couple of pics of the connector placement before removing them so you wont have nay trouble knowing where they go back on the new board ;-)Please rate kindly at this time so I can stay with you on this until the repair is complete.Thank youTech Michael
