You must really know your way around electronics! I probably would not have found that one! Good job.

Glad to have you back and chipping.

Post some pics of your first (or second) project.

Great repair! Not for everyone though. :)
BTW, you can upload your pics direct to CW forum from your computer without hosting.

really nice job on finding and fixing the problem. being a maintenance mechanic myself i can appreciate your determination in getting your fix done.

Would this type of self repair void your warranty?

Great fix Giz,

I would guess that the coils were wave solderd with the rest of the board. Sometimes the large pads/leads won't heat up as quick as the rest of the board and you can get some cold solder joints. Couple that with the fact that everyone is now soldering lead free ( a VERY new technology comparitivly ) and I expect many more problems related to soldering on all electronic items over the next 5 or so years. ( That's why aircraft electronics are exempt from the lead free regulation, they want to get it all sorted out before hand ).

Anyhow, great fix.
