It's not convenient DW. I use and depend on it daily. I need to know that I don't need to worry about it letting me down.

Thanks for the input.devonwoody":3cy75c3a said:Mine is three years old cost around £98 and it might start up again next year, and if they only last 5 minutes just pop down the road and get another under guarantee.
