it is actually a LF code

Overfill Condition

This error message occurs only if the machine control board

sees an open circuit at P17. If this is the case:

¦ Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.

¦ With the power disconnected, check the upper harness

connection to P17 on the machine control. Look for any

contaminants on the contacts. There should be a closed

circuit in the harness between P17 contacts 1 and 3.

¦ Replace the upper harness or machine control as necessary
