  • Turn the power off at the mains for at least 30 minutes to reset the electronics. Does normal behavior restore after turning back on?

No, I tried this.

Thank you. So it turns itself on and has erratic functions being changed on the display?

it beeps inconsistently, warms up whilst in the 0 position and if I turn it to 180 it goes back to 210 on its own ! please help I cant afford a new one

The main control PCB is faulty and will need to be replaced. The way it is now may be dangerous if it is turning itself on. Are you able to replace that part yourself?

what is a pcb ? control board, If I can get the part I should be able too I think

Yes, the main electronic control board. That part is available below!

Does not include EEPROM chip, do I need one of these too ? and do you think it is easy enough to change ?

The EEPROM chip may be removed from your existing control, it just plugs in.
