      Hi y'all..

      I'm back after a year off from not having to maintain our ES-1A, but now they took it to a repair shop and they say the Control Board is bad, and guess who gets it back.

      No lights, nothing works.. or so they say. I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, but I am looking ahead to having to replace the board.

      Anyone know where I can get a Control Board (working)? I looked at the links for PC Board Repair.. Has anyone used either of them in the past?

      Didn't Paul Albert buy up all the parts he could find? If he is still a member... Do you have a Control Board?

        I did use http://www.acsindustrial.com/printed-circuit-board-repair.php to repair a PC board for a machine, but not a Bunn. They were cheaper than buying a new board from an **authorized** dealer. They're especially cheap if you can't get a part for an obsolete machine.

        1st - check the fuse in the brain box.
        2nd - make sure it's not in program mode.

        Good luck,

        Thanks Tex. I hope to get it back soon and open it up. I doubt if it has been cleaned since I gave it to them a year ago.. I searched on the part number and

          I searched on the part number and found nothing online, so it might have to
          be repaired.

                  As usual. you were correct about their expertise.



                  Once I went and picked up the machine, I opened it up to check the fuses and
                  they were all good..



                  Funny thing though.. I noticed the lead going to the level probe had come
                  loose and fallen off. I reattached and decided I had better plug it in and
                  see what was really wrong with it.



                  It had an alarm, would not refill, but would manually dose. I cleared that
                  alarm with the 1 and 2 (half-cup) buttons and everything worked perfectly.



                  They wasted almost $100 for some tech that knew nothing about the ES-1A.



                  I think I'll make myself a few good cups of coffee before I return it to
                  them.



                  Paul. You never did reply with a price for the Control Board, and as it
                  turned out. that was a good thing. Maybe next time
