This required a several unsuccessful phonecalls to small parts repair companies who didn't know how to remove the old plastic casing required to fix the electronics. An electronics friend assisted me and took all morning to help take it apart and repair it. Now, there is another problem: the safety switch spring is not engaging with the food container. Very frustrating that these devices cannot be repaired simply. It should not be necessary to purchase an entire new unit, but it appears they are so designed to do just that.
