Please click here to download the tech sheet for your unit. Go to page 5 and perform test #5. This will point you to the failed comoponant in the system. Please let me know if you have any problems performing the tests or if the unit will not go into the test at all.

Please let me know if you require further assistance, or information.
If not please click on "ACCEPT".
Thank you.

JACUSTOMER-axdfblid- :

unit did not enter diagnostic mode (no lights or nothing?)

The Home Smithy :

Ok the control board you replaced, did it have the same connections as the origonal one? Are you certain that you replaced the wires correctly?

The Home Smithy :

If yes to both then follow the instructions on page 6 of the tech sheet.

None of the LEDs light up:


See Diagnostic Guide/Before servicing... on

page 1.


Visually check that connectors P3 and P4

are inserted all the way into the machine

control electronics. See Accessing &

Removing the Electronic Assemblies,

page 7. If these connections are good,

perform the checks described in Checking

Functions of Buttons and Rotary Cycle

Selector in box above.


If this test passes, replace the machine

control electronics.

The Home Smithy :

Otherwise, replace the console

electronics and housing.
