Good day Bill and Welcome to Justanswer,

Not succeeding with photo very sorry

OK, no problem Bill, I understand.

If the dryer is working and the lights are not working then you may have set the push buttons incorrectly or the buttons are worn out and will need replacement.

To solve the issue, please follow these instructions:

You will have to leave the appliance completely unplugged for around 1 hour.

While it is unplugged press and hold each and every button (one at a time) for around 10 seconds.

Then plug it back after one hour and it should work however, if issue is still there, the fascia panel will need replacement.

Alternatively, you may call AEG at 03445 611 611 to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Thanks Kevin Buttons do stick often. Don’t remember ever setting the push buttons

I understand, you may use a hair dryer as well from safe distance while it is unplugged for few minutes.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Is there anything I can do about the buttons

No, you can only replace the fascia if above advise will not work.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Hair dryer wow!,

Wow ?

Well, I have seen sometimes doing these simple home remedies solves the issue.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Just a surprise idea. Will try. So whole fascia replacement. Any idea how much cost

The cost of repair will be around £100 however, AEG provides fixed price repair hence, you may call them and check.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Well thanks Kevin appreciated your patience

You're welcome and Good Luck.
