When you unplugged the unit, did you wait one hour before plugging it back in? If not, do that first to see if the control board will reset its program. Please post back to me with the result.

Hello John,


OK so I unplugged for 1.5 hrs last night-still no change-same CAL on display. What's next?

Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
I've looked everywhere I can think of on the internet for the information you seek, but I haven't had any luck. I'll opt out of the question, and open it to our other experts.

Ok. Is there a wiring harness or re-set button or anything like that? Where are the 'brains'? Is it just there at the clock/display area? Would replacing that part 're-transmit' information to the rest of the appliance?
