Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

And if you say select a warm water setting does it give you a constant fill of cold water or does it fill some pause ,then fill again and pause and fill ?

Sorry I sent you the wrong reply!!

I noticed your request for a phone call. Unfortunately, Just Answer has stated that your request has failed due Credit card issues.
BUT I'm happy to continue corresponding with you here on our CHAT as we are now to assist you on your question.

this is normally due to your credit card company seeing two charges one right after the other.

And they block the latter charge until you ok it.

As for how extensive.

We need to find out if the temperature sensor on the water inlet valve is good or not and if it is good your going to need to replace the electronic control board.

Which I`m like 80 % sure it is the board since it came back and worked correctly after you unplugged the unit which essentially just rebooted the control board
