Electricity is charged by Kilowatts per hour - There is a very easy formula for you to determine how much electricity your unit consumes.

Locate a sticker on your unit, it will usually say something like 120VAC follow by a number with A....... example 120VAC (which means 120Volts alternative current) and 5A (5 amps). Locate those 2 numbers, multiply them together.

Here is the formula: V*A=W (Volts * Amps = Watts)

So example if you have 120V 4A, that makes 480 W !

Sometimes on some units it already says the wattage, expressed in W Example 100 W !

Once you determined the WATTAGE, divide it by 1000, that gives you your KILOWATTS.

So example, unit uses 400 W..... you will do 400 / 1000 = 0.4 KiloWatts / hour

Next, locate your utility bill and see how much they charge per Kw/h. Multiply your unit's Kw/h * hours per day operation * rate = the cost per hour !

Example

0.4 kh/w * 10 hours * 0.07 (7 cents) = 28 cents per day!

Either the blue LED is faulty or the LED needs replacing or resoldering to make proper electrical connection.
If you cannot fix it yourself and the fan functions normally then don't worry about it.

Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor

### Egr cooler

They should have replaced it right then. They know that it should be replaced if the EGR valve itself goes bad. They are trained in this and know what they are supposed to do. Tell them if they do not repair it right like they should hae 3 months ago you will go to the BBB and so on to get things right..
