Ok thanks. I was just trying to avoid going to KW. Do u have an estimate on how much it cost to correct this fault

It is the shops Hourly charge plus parts. It is impossible to tell what the fault is for and the parts needed without verification .

They will provide you with a repair quote prior to repairing the unit. If you accept he quote the repair process will begin.
