Did you look in service mode for error codes?

Pressure dome gets clogged easy on these models.

Sometimes it is effective enough to simply blow through the pressure hose that attaches to the control board.  Although the tube to the pressure dome on these models was made rather small, and it has been recommended that you use one of the smallest drill bits to clear it out and make the hole slightly larger.  The using of this drill bit is to be done by HAND ONLY.  NO drill is needed.

That models known for crappy main boards that causes a ton of weird issues. Basically you need a new board and youíll have to program its personaility according to model number. If itís a couple years old they may even give you an older version that doesnít even have your model, seen that a bunch.
