Are you up for taking it appart?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yep I'll have a go!
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
OK put the cleaner on a table and remove the screws that hold the two parts of the casing together. You will then find a water inlet solenoid and boiler with a couple of thermal cutouts. Come back to me when you have done this. Do it slowly and take note of how they go together they are a nightmare to reassemble.

I have taken the casing apart but the inside looks so complicated and I don't know the first thing about anything technical.Would it be possible for you to send me your instructions which I can save for my Grandson to follow? I really appreciate the time you have taken to help me.

I am working all over the weekend and then on Monday evening so come back to me anytime and I can take your grandson through things. It would be useful if he had a multimeter if he can borrow one.

Thank you so much for taking the time to try and help me. My grandson and son-in-law looked at it over the weekend and both said it looked like the motor had burnt out.Some of the parts were a bit rusty too.So I have disposed of it and bought a new one.Once again many thanks.
