Follow the detailed step-by-step guide provided by the experienced professionals at Fix Air Fryer, and find out what could be wrong with your touch screen, why it’s not working, and how to fix it yourself at home.
This will help you avoid unnecessary repairs and save you time and money when it comes to appliance repairs!
In my case, I did not get to know the problem and was unable to get it sorted out in the beginning but by consulting experts and trying various fixes, I solved it.
If you’re having difficulties using your Power XL air fryer because of problems with the touch screen, this easy-to-follow guide will show you what exactly the problem could be so that you can fix it quickly!
Check if it’s not on
It’s possible that your screen isn’t responding to touch because it isn’t turned on. Make sure you press and hold down Power before turning it on.
If it’s not on, you will see a No Picture message, which means it’s not connected to Wi-Fi yet (that’s what we’re working on next).
In case you already have a Wi-Fi network name and password stored in your power app, then skip to the next steps of Fixing Your Air Fryer.
If you don’t have a network name or password saved, read about how to add a network for easy Wi-Fi setup.
Clean power button
If it’s just a matter of cleaning, use an LCD cleaner or spray on a microfiber cloth. Make sure you follow directions and don’t get too close to any components.
Only allow liquid to touch parts that you know can withstand contact with liquid.
If your power button seems cracked or completely broken, check out our replacement guide for help with finding a new one.
On some models, all of these components are sold separately rather than as part of an expensive display replacement kit.
You can try our troubleshooting steps below before going ahead and buying something that you may not need. Make sure your buttons have enough give in them when pressed.
To do that, turn off your power fryer by pressing Cancel on it. Then unplug it from the wall and wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in.
You should also check to make sure all of your parts are dry and wipe them down with a soft cloth if they’re wet or dirty. That might solve your problem! If not, move on to the next step.
Replace control board
Since there is no display output, we’ll test each pin in turn with a multimeter. We will be looking for 0V (ground) when pressing a key and 5V when not pressing any key.
If we get 5V all of the time, it means that a particular pad on our control board is not making good contact with its counterpart on our touch screen.
To fix it, either clean up any corrosion on both parts or slightly bend/unbend them until they touch properly.
If after cleaning up both sides, you still have faulty readings from your multimeter, replace your control board! It has burned out! Replace your control board with a new one and you should be back in business.
Replace display board
Disconnect power from the unit. Use a small flathead screwdriver to remove three screws from face of control panel.
These are located on top and two on bottom. Gently pry face-off of control panel, using your fingernail around edges.
There are several wires connected to the display board that needs to be disconnected before you can replace it.
They are located under the black tape and will be numbered, as well as labeled with their function (ex: power button). Disconnect all wires by lifting up on the black locking mechanism.
If you need any help with your home appliance, always use genuine parts. Avoid using generic parts when repairing electronic appliances.
Never try to disassemble a power XL air fryer if its touch screen is not working or any other machine.
It’s better to get professional help in case of an issue that can’t be resolved on your own. In some cases, it is safer and more efficient to replace a broken part than repair it.
