So, in replacing the black cable I’ve stupidly managed to fry the board on the back of the GF below the cable and melted something (can’t tell what) on the left end of the cable where it fits the LED strip.
GF Pro Machine out of warranty and GF want $1,000 there and back shipping, plus $400-$1000 repair bill.
Now, I’ve seen people posting that they’ve returned their machine and GF have said “unrepairable, but have a refurb for $XXXX”.
But unless the refurb was an amazing deal, that doesn’t make sense to pay the $1000.
If I could guarantee it was a repair max cost $1000 I’d wince, but pay it.
Or, I could just buy another Basic and use the defunct Pro for spares.
I am confident enough to replace the little circuit board or the LED strip, but I don’t know if GF would sell them. Heck if it came to it I would buy a whole lid and circuit board - still cheaper.
Should I buy a basic and swap the lids?
The $1,000 shipping really screws things up!!
Any suggestions, guidance, advice.
