If it is totally dark, the control is most likely faulty. Unplug it for 30 full minutes to allow the control to reset. Does the behavior change when powered back up?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
No it still won't turn on
Expert:  Kelly replied 10 days ago.

It is only 10 months old, is that right?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I guess it is under warranty and they are sending someone Wednesday. I was just hoping it was an easy thing we could do
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 days ago.

Sounds like the main control is faulty if it does not reset with an extended power cycle. Glad it is under warranty, those control are expensive!

In your experience is this a typical problem for these type of machines
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 days ago.

Yes, they have a very high failure rate. It ususally condemns the machine if not under warranty as those controls are oftentimes over $3-400!
