So, I get to advise the landlord and off he goes to the store for a new one...or, he may tell me to go buy a suitable one and send him the bill. This lesson only cost me $7.32 for the service/installation manual and a couple hours of time...not bad, in my book.

The checkout cost me $45. (The shop said it'd be no charge if I let them dispose of the unit...I guess there's a few parts in there they wanted to get out of it!) Since it belongs to the landlord, I went back and got it from the shop. So - total price of the lesson was under $75 for everything including the gas for my car. At least I can assure the landlord that I tried everything reasonable to get the unit fixed. That should soften the blow of buying a new unit, if he wants one in the house. I'm also going to offer to go half on it with him since I'll get almost 2 years' use out of the unit before I move out.
Thanks once again for your assistance and sanity checks. Regards! Jim D/Heathsville, VA
