My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
If you have not checked the timing components I would check and see if any timing component has slipped or is damaged causing this here.I have seen in some cases before where this is the cause for this fault.
Thanks Pete
