Hello, the printed circuit board or the high limit sensor is likely failed, parts will almost certainly be required... if you have considerable technical skills and a multi meter I can coach you on a diagnosis and repair, figure 2 to 4 hours total.

.

If you do not have these skills, tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest town or city and I will locate a well rated outfit that can do that diagnosis and repair for you.

.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today.

If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
