    Check/do the calibration as it's described in the manual, maybe that will help.

    Well, my bluvac just died a horrible death!
    Somehow the screen looks as if it melted into a puddle of solder in two spots.
    Any ideas as of how that could happen?
    Too hot?
    Had to use my sman4 to pull a vac & hated doing that

    Seems none of these (by any manufacturer) stay working for long.

    I've not seen a failure like this. Call me at the office (number's on the web site) to arrange repair.

    Energy, since 2010, I've shipped thousands of BluVacs and BluVac LTEs. I've gotten a handful back for repair. As far as I know, at this point I have one unhappy customer.

    yeah but it got you out of a tight spot. That is one reason the built in micron gauge is useful.

    I have said a million times that I have five different micron gauges but I would not want my manifolds to be with out it's own built in micron gauge just in case I don't have one of my stand alone gauges with me.

    My BluVac is still chugging along just fine since early 2011. I'm a happy camper!

    They repaired mine quick. It actually worked but had a weird thing going on so they repaired it.

    Thanks Joey and my Techs thank you too. and realize how poor of job their vacuum setups where.
    Took a month or so for them to get used to it and changing their oil alot more often. But in the long run i am hoping for less call backs which is turn is happier customers.


    We have 6 or so yellow bluevacs
