How to Deal with Error Messages


CAUTION!

CAUTION. HOT!

Never touch the Heater Unit. Even when the heater looks not heated, the residual heat will remain to maintain reproducibility while the power is on.

Before this procedure, switch the power off, and disconnect the AC power cord. Wait from 5 to 10 minutes, and make sure that the whole heated unit cools down completely. Never turn the power on until this procedure becomes completed.

Error Messages Causes Remedies
E_01 The downside glass capillary chuck is not lifted to the uppermost position. (Heater Switch is not closed.) Loosen the glass capillary chucks and lift up the downside glass capillary chuck to the uppermost position and fix the glass capillary in place. Then, press the START Switch to clear the error message and press the START Switch again to resume operation.
E_02 It took over 30 seconds to adjust the HEATER output. (Protection against deterioration of the heater.) Set the Mode Selector to OPERATION and press the START Switch to clear the error message. Set the Mode Selector to HEATER ADJ. again and adjust the HEATER output.
After the START Switch was pressed and the production of a microelectrode started, a microelectrode was not produced after 120 seconds. Due to the HEATER LEVEL being set lower, the glass capillary was not melted and thus a microelectrode was not produced. Press the START Switch to clear the error message and set the HEATER LEVEL higher and press the START Switch again. (In this case, the glass capillary was pulled slightly. Thus, replace the glass capillary with a new one.)
E_03 It took over 90 seconds in adjusting the MAIN MAGNET or SUB MAGNET. (Protection against overheating the electromagnets.) Set the Mode Selector to "OPERATION" and press the START Switch to clear the error message. Set the Mode Selector to "MAIN MAGNET ADJ." or SUB MAGNET ADJ. to make adjustments to the Magnets.
E_04 The downside glass capillary chuck is not lifted to the uppermost position. (SUB/MAIN Changeover Switch is not closed.) Loosen the glass capillary chuck and lift up the downside glass capillary chuck to the uppermost position and fix the glass capillary in place. Then, press the START Switch to clear the error message and press the START Switch again to resume operation.
E_05 After the production of a microelectrode started, the downside glass capillary chuck stopped halfway through the task. Due to the HEATER LEVEL being set lower, the glass capillary was not melted and thus a microelectrode was not produced. Or the output of SUB MAGNET was set lower and thus the glass capillary was not pulled. Replace the glass capillary and press the START Switch to clear the error message. Set the HEATER LEVEL higher or set the SUB MAGNET higher and press the START Switch again. (In this case, the glass capillary was pulled slightly. Thus, replace the glass capillary with a new one.)
After the production of a microelectrode started, the downside glass capillary chuck stopped halfway through the task. As the high-low difference between the Heater Switch and the SUB/MAIN Changeover Switch is too great, the MAIN MAGNET was not turned ON after the HEATER was turned off. Replace the glass capillary and press the START Switch to clear the error message and then reduce the high-low difference between the Heater Switch and the SUB/MAIN Changeover Switch, or increase the HEATER output or set the output of SUB MAGNET higher.
E_99 Failed fixation of the heating element or a break in the heating element. Tighten the Heating Element Fixing Knobs securely. If the heating element is deteriorated and disconnected, replace the heating element with a new one.

CAUTION!

If the heating element ALONE generates heat with no error message displayed:

In case the heating element generates heat but the electromagnets do not function as intended after the START Switch was pressed, or the heating element remains heated, the HEATER ONLY Switch is set to "ON". Set the HEATER ONLY Switch to "OFF" and set a glass capillary again.
