It is a Russell Hobbs RHM2017, about 4 years old, I think.

Thanks Hilary,
you can try turning the unit off at the mains for 1 hour to see if this solves the issue. If it does please rate kindly.
If not, please don't rate yet but reply to me for further information;-)

Rated as Good service. Website layout not brilliant, but you can't help that! :-)

Now buying new microwave of a different make!

I understand and am glad you know i cant change any of that lol, just a tech lol
Thats not a bad idea, sometimes its best to buy new when this happens and that board fails.
I wish you the very best with your new microwave!
