Hi there a few weeks ago my Hotpoint SE48101PGX tripped the electrics then wouldn't switch on. I re-connected the power cable at the terminal just in case any of the wires were loose & it worked fine again for a few weeks until the other day when it completely died.
There is no display or signs of life in it at all. I took off the back & used a meter to do continuity tests from the power terminal to see if power should be getting into the oven & everything seemed fine up to the main circuit board where all I know what to do is look for anything that appears damaged. On the small square circuit board that sticks perpendicularly out from the main Power board I found a small black plastic square thing looked to have blown (yep I know all the technical jargon
) & the black cylinder thing that is rite next to it seems to have a dry powdery residue stuck to the top of it as can be seen below:
I've seen the "Power Board Hot2005 Pyro No Eeprom" advertised online for about £75 inc delivery so would just like to ask someone who actually knows about this stuff, do you think I should just try ordering this & replacing it my self? Or could the problem be a bit more complicated? Any help much appreciated!! Cheers.
