Good evening, and welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer, an independent paid question and answer platform that matches customers' questions to experts in various skills. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

I suspect the thermocouple has slipped, or is faulty. I would immediately report the defective behaviour to the retailer, and ask them to replace the appliance. You don't know what other faults it might have, so I would reject it and get another new one.


There's no time pressure on this topic - it will stay open to you for many days, and you can reply at any time. I will be away from my desk sometimes, but will respond as soon as I can.
