Hi there My name is Daniel,and I will do whatever I can to help you. Please be sure to ask me of anything you are unsure about.

Does the display show any numbers indicating a fault code?

JACUSTOMER-9hjk0dgl- :

No. it shows incomplete figures. The closest figure it looks like is a 5 but not all of the segments are lit.The delay start and temperature light are on, one bar on the time graph is on.After about 5mins of being on the whole display flashes on and off.

Hi there. I don't understand why you rated my service as bad, as I never answered you. I only asked for more info.

However, I will try and find out some more info on this if you would like me to?
