Would have been nice... if its new nd installed properly get Ferroli out, but be prepared for a fight - they are sccerrrewed.

The fault could almost be anything.

Well the Ferroli will end up costing her more in the long run, it's one of the biggest heaps of carp out there and as they are about to declare themselves bankrupt and disappear from the market there won't be any warranty either.
