Well i got a chance to talk to Barry at Kelleyco. Apparently there was a little water in there, which is never good. He believes it got in thru the volume area.... which is odd since i never move that knob. At least there wasnt much and he believes i caught it in time and he can save the board. I having him change out all the seals and check the pots since hes got it all apart. Might as well fix it now. He also noticed the use of a blue epoxy on the battery cap end which he questioned. Well.... that was some of MLs work not mine. Not sure why he wondered about that. Not going to be a cheap repair...... but its better than having to replace the board or buy another machine. Now i can not think of a thing that hasnt been replaced on the machine.... but the board and battery. All that..... and its still a heck of a machine. I still like it better than my blue. By the way Barry is one nice guy to deal with over there.... if i have any more issues id send it there any time.
