the cover.

Replace the bulb with the equivalent new bulb (E 14, same voltage as the original one) and replace the cover back to its position.

the fault yourself, disconnect the appliance from the mains ( see

chapter regarding the ON/OFF function), pull the power cord from

the wall socket, wait for approximately 10 minutes and reconnect

the appliance.

the information from the rating plate: type of appliance, model
