Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.

Mike,
The model number would be on the outside cover of the control.
This site works as there are no time limits here.

what does expert time left mean? says 10 min.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
Ok,
We can still get through this. How far did you take apart the back of the control box? Did you just remove the cables and the handle, or take the guts out of the box?
That refers to chat time. If you are a subscriber, it means nothing to you.
I don't go by that anyways.
