The Famous Forry :

Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'

The Famous Forry :

The heating ELEMENT is the most likely to be your fault here. The element is responsible for heating the water, just like your kettle, and has most likely gone 'open circuit'. Unless your pretty good at DIY with a little electrical knowledge then an ENGINEER will be needed. I would estimate this sort of repair to be around £69.


Thanks. That's what I thought.
