Did your Statim 2000 or Statim 5000 just display a Cycle Fault #1 Error? Don’t worry there is no need to panic. In this series, we want to give a general overview to help understand what is going on when your sterilizer displays different cycle faults.
What does Cycle Fault #1 Mean
The cassette temperature failed to reach 95°C within a time-out period
What can cause a Cycle Fault #1 Error
A Cycle Fault #1 can come from a few different issues:
- The boiler does not heat up properly or there is No power to the boiler. This is a field Service Tech repair.
- Check thermal fuse by using an ohmmeter to check for continuity between J1-3 & lower terminal on the boiler. If it’s reading less than 1-ohm the thermal fuse is good. If thermal fuse checks good then proceed to step 3. But if it’s bad replace and check the unit for proper operation. Test pump using pump tester
- Check resistance reading between J1-3 & J1-4 should read approx. 11ohms. Field Service Tech. repair
- Check for line voltage at terminals J1-3 & J1-4 during warm up. If the reading is good proceed to step 5 but if it’s bad then the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) is defective. That is a Shop repair
- Check for line voltage at boiler terminals. This is a Field Service Tech. repair
- An extremely large steam leak (Statim 5000). Replace cassette seal, lid or tray. This is an End-user repair
- An extremely large load (Statim 5000). This is an End-user repair
