Statim G4 Cycle Fault 1 - How to Troubleshoot
Andrew here Sterilizer Autoclave Solutions… we are going to talk about Cycle Fault Number 1 Statim G4 Error Code.

Again… we’re talking about Cycle Fault Number 1!

“The temperature failed to reach 90 degrees Celsius within a timeout period.”

The first thing we are going to check is if the cassette is over-packed, it has an extremely large load, or if it has a steam leak. We are going to want to address the cassette in this case.

If there are any instruments inside the cassette when you are receiving the Cycle Fault 1 Error Code you want to remove all of them and then run another cycle.

If you still have the problem we are going to go and address the cassette seal.

Now, if the cassette seal is not replaced every 6 months or 500 cycles, or if it’s not properly maintained with lubricant etcetera, then it will fail prematurely. You want to double-check all these little rubber blocks. Make sure they are all in the right place, check the back and make sure they are all in the right place. We are going to lubricate it with some NON-DETERGENT soap, then put the cassette back together and in, and run another cycle.

If you still continue to receive the error of Cycle Fault 1 we have already checked the load, and have already addressed a possible steam leak. We don’t have either one of those so it could be a boiler issue.

The boiler doesn’t heat up so we will then check the double thermal fuse. We are going to go to the back of the machine now. I have a multi-meter and this is how we will check the double thermal fuse.

The double thermal fuse (if you look in by the boiler) runs from this post (points at the post) underneath the boiler, through here all the way up to the backside of the PC Board. It is Wire #3. We will then take one lead and put it on this post, and go to the board and put one lead on there. We want it to beep because if it does beep it means the double thermal fuse is good.

Okay…So we are still talking about Cycle Fault 1. We have addressed the cassette, the cassette seal, the load, and we’ve looked at the boiler (the boiler, in this case, does have a good double thermal fuse).

Normally this fault comes from a blown double thermal fuse. That is something that possibly an end-user could do, but we would recommend you send it in for repair.

There are a couple other things that you can check on the board with the multi-meter but none of these are end-user repairs.
The end-user repairs for a Statim G4 Cycle Fault 1 are going to be the cassette seal, or taking the instruments out and running an empty cycle making sure that there wasn’t too much weight in the cassette causing an error.
There is not too much you can do as an end-user so you should send it in to a facility like ours. Give us a call and we can schedule all that stuff.

Thank you!
