Background information: owner tells me that a servicer came a week ago to solve a no-pumpout issue. She used the unit once after this, and described the sound it made as "like a toy with the batteries running out". I did not ask why she did not call the original servicer back...I would have.

 

No control panel lights, no response to keypad presses. I pulled the toe panel to verify power to the machine and see right off the bat that the hot and common wires are reversed in the junction box...so I already know something's fried. I know the keypad is FUBAR, no continuity between pins 6 and 10 (start function) during a key press. Both door switches and wiring show continuity through to the control board with the latch in the closed position. Beyond this point I don't know if it's worth continuing the diagnostics...no burns or other visual problems with the board, but am not sure how to test this without a working keypad. 

 

Can anyone tell me how to test the board without a good keypad? Or is it more likely that multiple components have been damaged due to the reversed supply wiring?

I've seen these run for years with reversed polarity, and these are infamous for bad keypads. Who knows what the dead battery sound is without a SWAG. How much $ do you want to sink into this thing? You already know that you need a keypad console...


We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
