So, unfortunately, after one too many time beeing set under water, my Laing DDC 3.3 shed its life...coils are in perfect shape, but a small burn mark, and a place where the laquer got stripped away from the circuit trace, both in places where one side of the pcb connects to the other (those tiny, slightly downward bulbed spots on the pcb)

i think the PCB would be reusable, but i lack the technical expertise to be absolutely sure of that... replacing it with something that fits and works as-is, no matter if DIY, blue PCB or spare pcb, from a pump that shed a winding on the coils, for a slim price, is pretty important for me right now, cant afford to buy a new one for months at least...any help is appreciated!

Thanks in Advance, guys! :)
