Like many things...

A risk between User replacement Vs Litigation

And then the DIY people that think they can and can't... How hard can it be !!!! I could tell you story after story and OBN could tell you 1001 more...

Give me a machine out of warranty and if not a board or coil problem = easy as. Some parts may be custom made (ML will not provide) but in general the basic repairs are like bread and butter to a few experienced/qualified tecs.

Now give me a machine that Mister FB user/google has had a go at and I am feeling like I just hit the trenches at Flanders in WW1. And I am sure OBN know what I am on about.

Step one can be a strip and rebuild with known parts to a standard system and go from there - Other times it is shock and horror and wire cutters OR you find that the main board has been fried OR it had water in it since it failed and they just got around to getting it fixed...


SO for many reasons; I can understand why ML choose not to provide many parts for the DIY... Still it is a pain when you have to become a manufacturer to perform what should be a simple service/repair of a simple breakdown.

Just my 2c worth...

No service manual needed - Simple system... Just need access to a few select parts :-)
