Please tell me the following information:
How many times does the LED flash before pausing to start flashing again?
Thanks for the explanation Mike..
The error codes on the appliance are signalled by Flashing Red or Red & Green of the Start Button whereby the start button of the appliance would normally be Green
1. Switch off the appliance.2. Press and hold down the START/PAUSE button and the nearest OPTION buttonsimultaneously (as represented in figure).3. Holding down both buttons, switch the appliance on by turning the programme selector oneposition clockwise.4. Continue to hold down the buttons until the LEDs begin to flash (at least 2 seconds).In the first position, the cycle tests the operation of the buttons and the relative LEDs. If theselector is turned clockwise, the cycle performs the diagnostics for the various components andreads the alarm codes.
5. Turn the programme selector clockwise (version with knob) to the tenth position to read the Error Code.
E51.. Thanks.. One moment whilst I check on that for you
Motor power supply triac short circuited
PCB faulty; Current leakage from motor or from wiring
What you can do it to check the brushes in the motor to see if they are causing the short circuit.. Clean any carbon that is on the commutator where the brushes connect to.
Hopefully it will be just the brushes needing to be changed. Alternatively the PCB is at fault or there is a current leak from the motor
Do you have a multimeter Mike?
It depends on the condition of the appliance Mike.. They were very good machines.. Hopefully it'll not be an excercise of too much expense for you.
Maybe they will offer you an all-in repair cost..
