Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Does the control turn on? Also are you just saying it will not start? Lastly the model and is it electric or gas?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing is happening. No lights no bells
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry it is gas
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK if nothing is happening, you my have a power issue to the unit or a failed power filter or main board. If you are sure the power to the unit is good you would need to remove the top and check the power to the filter and see if you have power out of it to the main board. If you do the main board is bad.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

I will pay you I promise but how do I check the information you just gave me

How do I take the top off and is that a long process
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

There should be a couple screws along the back edge of the top to remove it.
