Hello James are you there

This is not an immediate service I am afraid, it can take time for experts to respond, as they will need time to go away and look into the fault, but we do try and respond as soon as possible.

How often is the red light flickering?

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.
For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.

The flashing LED light on the front relates to a fault code, depending on the number of flashes determines the fault.

In most cases the fault is with the main board, this can be sourced here for around £50.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask them!
