OK thank you do you have any test equipment that would allow you to check if you had power at a particular point in the appliance?

Non am afraid not
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
OK in that case I would suggest you get a service engineer in or a friend that knows and has a meter. The appliance is totally controlled by a computer board and without knowing if it is actually getting power its just a guessing game.

Okay, if there are no lights coming on though I presume no power anywhere... if it is the thermal fuse, does that need replacing if it's gone, does it not start working again when machine cooled down?

20 mins. & no answer?!
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
There is no thermal fuse the power goes from the main cable through a inteference suppressor directly to the pcb. Thermal fuses look after the operation of the heater from what you have told me so far you have no power getting into the appliance and no way of testing even if you had?

You have taken a further £17 from my bank account. Seeing as you have not been able to help me, other than tell me you can't help, and I did not say that I was satisfied to pay more, or give permission for a further £17 to be taken I politely request you reimburse me £17. If this does not happen I shall waste no time in taking up a complaint.
