Failure Control Panel
I bought Bosch SHU in April 98; within a year the control panel buttons failed and the electronic board with it's casing was replaced under warranty with an "improved" unit.
Now after 4 1/2 years from purchase date, they have failed again ! The mechanical link design between the control panel and the electronic board is indeed very poor, as well as the quality of the plastic selected for the electronic board overall casing in comparaison with the balance of the unit and its very good performance. The "snaps" holding the electronic boards into the casing as well as those used to fit the casing in the control panel are also drying to brittleness.
I am looking into getting a replacement unit under the 5 years warranty and installing it myself to avoid the labor charge, not covered. Otherwise fitting a "tie rap" head, of the appropriate size and that has been cut from its tail, seems to etablish a functionning mechanical link between the control panel button and the electronic board switch.
