probably 8 years. It feels quite heavy to turn.

Hi thank you for that information. Do you have a meter for some tests?

Also does the machine turn on? Any lights etc?

No I don't have a meter. The problem is it does NOT turn on. The switch has always been a bit slow or reluctant to operate the machine, but recently it's been OK if I just hold the button in for a few seconds however now I cannot coax it into switching on.

Thank you for that info. I would then suspect the main push button switch.

This part you need is the main control board , the one with the push button.

It is easy to fit, with just a few basic hand tools and I will help you get to it once you have the new one.

The best place to get that would be:

Its best to call them because you want to make sure to get the correct part the first time;-)

And there are many different boards.
