eppendorf 5810R board diagnostics

Error 6 has numerous causes, this unit was working until moved, now it's all error 6. Temp control works fine. Does anybody know if the service manual is worth the $$? I don't want to replace the freq conv bd if I can see a work around. I have several other svc manuals for eppendorf, but the tech support folks are so unhelpful, that I may just recommend replacing unit with another more servicable brand.

I've just fixed an old 5810R with V2.0 f/w that had an Error 6. It was a supply voltage problem but it was the frequency converter that was creating this error. I measured it was only getting about 12Vac to it.

I traced the problem back to the main PCB and found there are 2 power relays that switch the 240V coming in from the main connector straight out the the cable that supplies the Frequency Controller. These relays were not passing current and dropping about 100V across the contacts.

Replacing both relays fixed the problem and the centrifuge is operating normally.

Error 31-x

0 - Timeout closing lid

1 - Timeout opening the lid

2 - Undefined position when opening

3 - Monitoring of microswitches for lid

4 - Released lid does not open

5 - Error during lid test after power on

 

- Check the connections on the sensor board and plug X10. (Had this happen to me on one. Burnished the contacts and it worked fine after that.)

- Check for presence of voltages on the sensor board (but you need the schematics/wiring diagram.)

There is no Error 31 code for new version of 5810(R). Only old version has code 31 - x

Hola chicos

Tengo una falla con esta centrífuga con el problema de bloqueo de la tapa. Cuando se intenta cerrar la tapa superior, el motor intenta cerrar la tapa, pero se detiene a la mitad. Después de algunos intentos, se cierra, pero no se abre la tapa cuando se presiona el botón. Se reemplazó el motor de bloqueo de la tapa y los microinterruptores de la tapa pero la falla continúa. Se vigila la tensión del motor. El motor funciona sin carga.

¿Alguna sugerencia sobre qué podría estar causando el corte del voltaje del motor?

También sería útil el enlace al manual de servicio.

 

Gracias

Sarwan
