  • Turn the power off at the mains for at least 30 minutes to reset the electronics. Does normal behavior restore after turning back on?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No, I tried this.
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

Thank you. So it turns itself on and has erratic functions being changed on the display?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
it beeps inconsistently, warms up whilst in the 0 position and if I turn it to 180 it goes back to 210 on its own ! please help I cant afford a new one
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

The main control PCB is faulty and will need to be replaced. The way it is now may be dangerous if it is turning itself on. Are you able to replace that part yourself?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
what is a pcb ? control board, If I can get the part I should be able too I think
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

Yes, the main electronic control board. That part is available below!

Does not include EEPROM chip, do I need one of these too ? and do you think it is easy enough to change ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

The EEPROM chip may be removed from your existing control, it just plugs in.
