the original "round" Heating Element & Controller had a problem

replaced with new "pentagram" Heating Element and new Controller

Unless you already have the new Controller w/ "pentagram" Heater ?

Posted 27 December 2012 - 06:07 AM

why would i need the board please?

 

The new heater draws higher amps (better cleaning and drying), new board has a different heater relay to accommodate the higher amp draw...
