    Bluvac LTE calibration trouble - help

    Manual says during the calibration mode when it says cold to place in the freezer. And after its cold, then the alarm will start, and say hot.

    The alarm begins while im trying to get it in the freezer, and says oil.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I think I got it. Had to cool it down some first.

    I’ll see how it goes.

    Still dont got it.

    Stayed in cold mode, then alarmed and said hot.

    Let it warm up and it alarmed oil again.

    Maybe I trashed it for good?

    JoeyD?

    Got them to calibrate sort of.

    Still says oil in the top left - sometimes.

    Ive cleaned them like 15 times with rubbing alcohol. What gives?

    I dont use nylog on my evac stuff. Too sticky, and it attracts dirt.

    I think I finally got it though. Cleaned the sensor one more time after the last calibration and it says its good when I do a calibration test.

    Think it may have been some lingering rubbing alcohol on the o-ring of the cap.

    Youl be fine. I literally had a bunch of oil suck into it.

    Took some effort to get it back to life. But its good now.

    I had mine suck some AC renew once. I usually use electrical contact cleaner for something quick. But I remember cleaning it 2-3 times before it came back ok then re calibrating it.

    So you got it working, heatingman? Good.

    You can always call me at my office if you need immediate service. I often miss new threads here.
