Model number ZC168000BA
When i switch on at main switch panel lights up,
but when i try to press controls or turn knobs E8
comes up on screen.Thanks.
Expert:  JamesI replied 4 months ago.

Good evening,

E8 is a communication fault between the main control board and the display board.

This may be caused by a lose ribbon cable, a failed control panel or display board.

Unfortunately this will require an engineer to come out and strip the unit down, worst case a new control board would be around £150, but in most cases its a case of just reseating the cable.

If you would like me to recommend an engineer to come out, please provide your postcode.

Cheers

James
