When i switch on at main switch panel lights up,
but when i try to press controls or turn knobs E8
comes up on screen.Thanks.

Good evening,

E8 is a communication fault between the main control board and the display board.

This may be caused by a lose ribbon cable, a failed control panel or display board.

Unfortunately this will require an engineer to come out and strip the unit down, worst case a new control board would be around £150, but in most cases its a case of just reseating the cable.

If you would like me to recommend an engineer to come out, please provide your postcode.

Hi,Yes think I will need an engineer. My post code is bt37 9at.Thanks

No problem, I would suggest you use OCR their number is *****(###) ###-####

They will come out and give you a non obligation quote free of charge, we have referred a number of customers to them over the years and have always had excellent feedback.
