It's been cleaned

Hi. My brother cleaned it out earlier this year. It also fails to work when it firsts fires up for the day, so getting warm it's part of the problem. Like I said, it worked at my parents house, and stopped the moment I got it to my house.

Travel may be the clue.

If it is still failing after the usual maintenance it may be time to do the next level of maintenance. We replace the heat sink compounds, cleaning as we go. If that doesn't help we start changing parts.
