Thank you for all that info.

Please explain the error you have more clearly?

no ,i think you mis understood ,after i did a descale which was prompted by the machine, keep reading Circuit Break & the machine makes a strange noise when its operates on the cappuciono mode
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i do not think you are going to be able to fix this ... i will send the machinr to the service centre in Hampshire for a complete service & repair .. please cancel any payment made Tank you

Thank you now I got it.

Please unplug this one for 30 full minutes then try it again. Sometimes this machine will glitch

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

I will tell you where to get a new board if you want? Repairs on this machine if you have it sent out or a tech to come in are very expensive.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!
