Tools Required:

  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Flathead Screwdriver
  • Needle Nose Pliers



NOTE: Disconnect the unit from the power source before attempting any repairs


Step 1: Remove the power circuit board cover


  • On the back of the unit, remove the 4 Phillips screws securing the grated cover over the back of the unit

  • Remove the cover to the circuit board by removing the two Phillips head screws and pressing in the two squeeze clips (one on each side)




Step 2: Remove and replace the power circuit board


NOTE: This would be a good time to take a picture of the electrical connections to help put them back in the right place later


  • Using needle nose pliers or a flathead screwdriver, release the squeeze clips for the electrical connectors

  • After all of the electrical connectors are removed, remove the Phillips screw holding the board in the housing

  • Line the new circuit board up and install the two Phillips screws securing it to the housing
  • Reinstall the electrical connectors



Step 3: Reinstall the circuit board cover


  • Clip the circuit board cover to the housing


NOTE: There are cutouts for the wires to feed through. The wires must be properly fed through these cutouts to allow the cover to properly clip to the housing


  • Once the cover is secured to the housing, install the two Phillips screws to attach the housing to the unit



  • Reinstall the grated cover over the back of the unit



Procedure Complete!
