Service Programs to test Eppendorf 5415R and 5415D

While I would love the entire Service Manual aka Repair Guide, I just need to test out a pesky Eppendorf Microfuge 5415R with a couple of errors. I'd like to test to speed sensor, cycle the lid latches, see the error history (figure this one out - see below) and get this clean centrifuge back to the lab. Thanks! To enter Service Programs to see error history, power on while pressing the Speed button. Rotate the Time knob to SE 6 and press the Time knob. The centrifuge will display the number of times each of the errors was displayed before returning to the SE list.

Here is how I was able to access the SE3-Lid Sensor Test. Press the Speed button while powering on. Rotate the Time knob to display SE3. Select SE3, then press the Time knob. Press down the lid, the display should change from 1 to 0. Press the Speed button to incrementally pull the lid closed. When the lid is closed and latched, the display should read 1.

Okay, this makes more sense now years later. Power on while pressing the Speed button to enter Service Mode. Turn the Time dial to select Service test 1, 2, 3... SE3 is latch sense from your description. SE6 is stored error codes. Now I am excited to check the rest of the tests. Thanks for the help!
