if you are experiencing the start up and shut down like i did you may consider this being the issue.
It was leaking underneath. Itís 16 years old though. I wanted to DIY it but my bro says no. Itís his house and his money. He couldíve saved a bunch.
Dream big, aim high then show the world what you can do!
