FQ-100 "Out of Order" Error

Issue: FQ-100 consistently flashes "Out of Order" on the display board.

Cause: The machine's CPU is unable to get a correct temperature reading of the fog machine heater which is usually caused by the Main PCB or Thermal Sensor failure.

Solution: Change out Main PCB or Thermal Sensor with a working unit to determine which part has failed and replace that component.
