    If that is all that is wrong with it you got a pretty good deal.

    Numerous times I have bought items off ebay and elsewhere which required adjustments to get them to work properly or optimally. I don't consider needing an easily done adjustment to be the same as defective, because it's just sort of the nature of buying used. It could have even happened during shipping.
    If a quick adjustment solves the problem, why go to the trouble, time, and bad feelings of a dispute, along with sending the unit back and finding another if you prevail? If the problem can be readily solved, solve the problem and get on with doing what you bought it for.

    I have run my Jobo without water and the heater turned off.

    You won't kill it by running it with the thermostat below ambient temperature, it shouldn't come on at all.

    As for the reverse switch - happy to get some photos of mine in action (yes, that's mine in the video he attached!) so you can work out how the reverse works..

    If you can follow the expert advice given in this thread and get it working then I would keep it. Seller does come across as a jerk so you can always leave bad feedback for him.

    Also, didn't Jobo say parts are once again available?

    About two years ago Jobo's German (Europe) service told me they had enough spares for all processors.

    CPE2 is a small robust processor. You can turn it on for a short time to check the motor, no problem. But I won't turn on without water for any longer.

    My stance with the auction is that: after you receive the item and find any ANY problem, immediately report it to the seller with evidence. If you do anything with it, you void the default (unspoken) rules on warranty and return. Then the item becomes your property and the seller can refuse to take it back. In your case, your video is the clear evidence that you turned on the machine without water, which is against the Jobo instruction. The instruction manual clearly says "10) Never operate unit without water in bottom trough. Water level should be at least 5 inches above the bottom of the unit."

    From what you described, you should be able to adjust it to a good working condition. Spend some time and fix it by yourself.
