Okay, so here's the deal have two integrated dishdrawers.

 

Top drawer the little control badge on the door (chrome piece with power/start/pause buttons) doesn't seem to be functioning.

 

With the door open the green led will flash but I can't seem to get feedback from pushing the buttons - i.e. nothing happens.

 

Took off both fronts and plugged the bottom drawer into the top - works fine.  Plugged the faulty top drawer into bottom - nothing.

 

So - it's the control badge, right?  Do these things go bad?

 

(Looking for a little confirmation on my troubleshooting)

 

I'm assuming what I need is a new control badge and everything will be fine, yes?

 

Okay, assuming that's the case - any tricks on getting the old badge out?  I'm a little concerned about damaging the wood panel that it's set in.  Drill it out?  Pretty sure if I just start banging on the thing that's not the right answer.

 

Need a pro tip!

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks, as always, 

 

Anthony

As long as the badge led is not blinking red then there's probably no fault indicated.  Press and hold keylock button 5 seconds to make sure control is not locked.  Integrated badges can go bad and be easy enough to remove if the cabinet guy did his job right.  Just push old badge from the back of the panel out to the front.  There are small ridges on the side of the badge body that hold it snug to the cutout.  Replacement badge should snap right in.
