Hi and welcome to Just Answer, a Question and Answer Company. My name is Carl and I will be assisting you today.

Does the belt move at all anymore or is it just turning on and off by itself?

Just turns off and on its own
Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
Thanks Steve,

Does it give you an error code to indicate which fault type it is?

It sounds like the Controller board is failing but it's a very expensive part to replace. Remove the Console and reseat all plugs and ribbon cables that you can find then try to power on again. Does the error go away or stay?

hi carl it says error detected do i take the panel off the front where it all lights up or at the back of the machine

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
The Console panel should come off as a whole then it should have screws that hold the front and back half together. We are just trying to gain access to the inside of the Console where the lights and what not are.
