Hi thank you for that, no the timing isn't critical.
Yes you are correct. the Main control board has failed and needs to be replaced.
Make sure you tell them you want one with a pre programmed PROM! Other wise the y could send you one that hasn't been programmed and that would cost you more to have a local tech come in and do that;-)
Its easy to do and I will help. One piece of advice, take pics of the old one before disconnecting the wiring plugs so you know for sure which one goes where. They are all different so it hard to mess that up anyway lol
The best place to get a new main control board is: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/
I would call them to order this part. WHen you call they usually ship the same day;-)
