Thanks. I found paperwork at the bottom of the unit which is for the actual technician's use. I followed the instructions to determine if either the control board or the actual console assembly (i.e. touch pad) was at fault. I've determined that the actual touch pad is at fault. I'm no technician by any means. What I found was that when I pulled the ribbon off the console, and pulled the thermistor off two times within 6 seconds, the unit, as the instructions stated, started in diagnostics mode and then proceeded to fill with water and then the same problem occurred. The instructions state that if this happens the console is at fault and needs to be replaced. If nothing happend and I was sure I followed the instructions properly, which I am confident that I did, then the control board was at fault and in need of replacement.
Are there any other tests I could conduct on the console to reassure myself that it is the problem? Is it possible that the LEDs would light when I press a console butten yet the actual console is at fault with some sort of short within it?
Thanks for your help !
