Sorry, the machine is in my daughter's car. It is 9 - 10 years old and it has had 2 tune ups over that time. The last one was 3 years ago. Can I reach you tomorrow or another day when I can find the number?
Small Appliance Technician: Michael, Small Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
Hi you can have me call you if that is ok?
As per PA's rules, you would need to accept their terms of service agreement that I will send you just after I send this note to you.
This, is one I agree would be best for us to be able to discuss live on the phone to get it right and quickly resolved;-)
Thanks for your understanding and have a great evening.
Please rate my service thus far kindly then accept the TOS and I will call at the time you specify;-)

Sorry to detain you so long. A friend of mine came in, likes to take things apart so he had a look at the machine and all is well. Sorry for this inconvenience as well.
