CTX 3030, coil not detected
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:30:48 PM »
When detecting today the message "coil not detected" was flashing up on the screen every so often, looks like I have a broken wire at the grommet that goes into the coil itself, does anyone know if this can be repaired and if so by who?
Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the info, I did ask Steve but it is not one he would look at as it is a sealed unit, had a go at it myself and it is pretty much a bin job :( :(
