  1. my sister bought me a model epc460 but when I try to use it all it does is show a light F4 nothing else will work, what can I do

    1. Ask the retailer for to exchange it. The fuse needs to be replaced.



    2. i have the same problem with my cooker lights up F4 and nothing else epc450 or epc 460

  2. I have the same problem. The unit was purchased from a TV add. How do I do something with this ???

  3. Since I have had NO response regarding my problem, I have to assume there is no way to fix the unit. It is a brand new unit and is at this point, a piece of junk. I will have to buy another unit, however, I would be a real sucker to purchase one from this maker.

    1. HI Bobby, I tend to avoid htese manual pages as they automatically download a new copy of the manual every time I refresh the page.

      However, I see that Laura answered the person above you. Since you say you have the same problem, I would expect the same answer to be appropriate. No need to repeat it.
