Hey there,
Turn the machine on yesterday afternoon and thought I smelled a faint burning smell as it warmed up. Thought it was odd, and not 100% sure it was coming from the machine. Following morning I walked up to it expecting it to be fully heated and ready to go. It had has been on as it was warm. Now it was daed. No LCD lights, no response from on/off switch in the back. Outlet is good, and the cord has power. Can't find anything burnt inside and reset switches on boilers are fine from what I can tell.?

Need your help on what track to follow on figuring this out. Any help is welcomed.

My nose was right !!
Opened up the brain box and found the hot(black) lead to the power switch had corroded and bunded off the contact completely. The tip off was the brain box cover is burnt and has a split above the contacts inside the box. Hopefully that is all there is. Will update later.
