I don't know how things are at Alp these days but my Alp did 
something similar about 8 years ago.  It looked like something on the 
board and I called them only to find that the board was not 
available.  I told them that was simply not acceptable.... that I now 
had an expensive and dead machine that was not repairable.  They 
eventually sent me a new machine.

Wow, I never thought about it, but I've been Alpenrosting for over 10 
years!  Before that it was the Melita Aromaroast.
