Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. When these things happen there are typically a few things that can be checked.

Here is a list of things we can check and information about how it all works. I am here to assist you in any way you need me or any questions you may have.

I assume the main control board will be the problem but would like to check a few other things before determining that. If the part is out of stock that is at fault no need to worry because I can get the part from else where online for you.

If you have found this information helpful all I ask is you rate with 5 stars at the top so I am credited for my time. Rating does not stop you from getting back to me in the event you need me.

My apologies I just noticed that you requested a phone call and I am unavailable for a phone call at the moment but I would be more than happy to assist you on here. Have you inspected the fuse to see if its blown yet?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I'm going to take it to a local repair shop tomorrow.

Oh ok that is fine. I do believe either way they will find the problem is with the control board and it will need to be replaced. I hope they are able to give you a quick answer and a quick fix. Have a good night .
