Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer, Im reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

Lights 5 and 7 indicate a fault in the heater circuit of the appliance.

You would need to unplug the appliance and take the side panels off.

Unplug the heater and test it with a multimeter to see if it's open circuit.

If it is, you need to first replace the heater and try again.

If it's ok, the likely fault is the main control board in the facia panel of the appliance.

Check the heater, check the wiring to the heater. See what you find.

Hope this is of some help

Let me know how it goes or if you need more help
