just got it this week and man is it great.
Used it a few times on a couple recovery jugs. With a old vacuum pump that was so called "bad".
Pulled a 100lb cylinder down to 80 and it only rose to 150 in 10 mins. will pull down just a brass coupler from trutech down below 100 in 20 seconds and 2 mins maybe less to below 20. :)
But now it is reading 0 microns at atm pressure.
Changed the battery and still doing it.
Any idea why and how to resolve problem?
Did you try it on a pump?
Does the reading change?
ran it on a pump for about a hour and it finally went away and started readling properly.been using it prolly 3 hours total today and it did not happen again.
Took it a while to reset must have had oil or something on the sensor.
If it has oil on the sensor, it will say OIL on the screen and requires a cleaning with alcohol.

I have used it alot today because i was playing with our vacuum pump graveyard and vacuuming out recovery tanks(9). 3 out of 4 pumps that were "bad" (sad to say before we used micron gauges) are good now. changed the oil and tightened a couple of fittings and one capacitor later. They all pull down between 20-60 microns in under a minute. We got one frankesteen pump up and running with parts off of the one that i couldn't get working. It has a bad seal too bad its not just the oil resovior seal its coming from underneath.
They are all robinair pumps i know one is a 6 cfm pump the other ones the labels are wore off. For doing that i got an okay to order some new micron gauges for our techs looks like they will get some yellow uei / (bluvacs) from jmart and can get rid of some of the old ones that are not very accurate at all.
I never tried but is zero a selection on the alarm setting. Maybe it was stuck where you would have set the alarm :confused:
Does the LTE have a timer?
I don't think so
there goes that idea huh :angel:
The behavior you described is not normal. Keep an eye on it. If it happens again, call me at my shop and I'll repair it for you. The number is on my website http://accutools.com.
Apologies for the problem.
Will do Joey. Thanks for the help
Mine (lte) keeps getting stuck in calibration mode.
Either says "soon”, or good, but will not let me exit. I have to pull the battery.
I have cleaned it, and will try to calibrate if it will let me!

This sounds like a problem with the keypad. Call me on Monday to arrange repair.
