JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: No, the machine lasted a year and 2 weeks

First off your post is rather confusing!!

Is this a brand new unit just purchased on August 14 or is it over 1 year old ?

The running for 20 seconds and tuning off,, sounds as if the unit has been programmed to the sales demo feature.

Have you unplugged or turned the unit circuit breaker off for over 5 minutes yet?
