Have you tried resetting the breaker in your home?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes, as i said, it has power, the screen and lights power on, it just beeps once when i press the start button bt does nothing
Expert:  Barry G. replied 6 years ago.
If one half of the double throw breaker were tripped you would still get some limited functions.

Has it worked since you have moved and did you have to change the connector? Is it 3 prong or 4 prong and do you have a voltmeter?


EDIT: We are having power problems so I am going to shutdown til morining. If you have time to answer that would be great.
