Homemaker Electric Throw Rug Repair
Just short repair article. I recently had trouble with a heated throw rug
I would be sitting watching the Tv setup to make a cuppa or let the cat in and come back. The throw rug had reset.
Anyway I dropped the controller on the floor and noticed it had reset.
This got me thinking It may be dry joints. So I unscrewed, 4 torx no 10’s and it was apart.
Looked over the circuit board and noticed a cap had no solder on it and the lead was too short (not poking out of the hole).

So I resoldered the offending Capacitor and an electrolytic as well.
I then put it all back together and did a drop test and it all good.
I wonder how this got through the QC department as the soldering looks like it was done by hand except the smd components.
