If anybody can help I would appreciate it.
I had my controller board burn out. The thing was probably 6 years old and I was told it was the wrong one. So, I got new one. I put it in and it worked for 10 minutes, sort of, and then packed in. I can smell a burnt electrical smell with the controller but nothing looks burnt.

After this fiasco I checked all the wiring and so far nothing appears to be wrong. Has anybody had a similar problem?
