hi Daniel


 


the model number is rsxs661cr/c


 


cheers

Hi

 

If theres no power since the bulb blew it may have taken the control board out.

 

The board should be located on the top of the appliance.

Take the cover off to expose the power board and take it out and see if it has blown.

 

Let me know what you find.

would it be obvious if the control board has gone ? or would i have to get a tester on it ?


do you think i could fit a new control board ?


 

Hi

 

If its blow you will see it. As the solder tracking will have burnt.

 

But it may look ok but it could still be faulty. But if theres no power to the appliance but the power supply is fine and you have tested the socket its pluged into then its usually the control board itself at fault.
