If during operation of the PVA Removal Station, the rotor stops and the rotor speed LEDs blink in a pattern, the PVA Removal Station has encountered an error. If both LEDs flash once, then pause for 1 second, this is error code 1.
There can be two potential causes for this error:
The PVA Removal Station will only function if the magnetic rotor is correctly installed in the container. Do not fill the container with water if the rotor is not installed first, because the device will not work. Check if the rotor is correctly in place. If not, empty the container (and clean it if necessary) and install the rotor:
- Take the rotor by its center pin and make sure the fins are facing upward.
- Gently but firmly push the rotor onto the pin at the bottom of the container.
- Apply pressure until the rotor is fully in place; the rubber O-ring of the rotor pin should be pushed through the rotor completely.
- Refill the container with water
There must be enough water in the PVA Removal Station for successful operation and dissolution of PVA support material. Make sure that the printed object is completely submerged.
If this error appears and the rotor is correctly placed, refill the container.
Note: Never fill the container beyond the water level indicator.
After taking the actions described above, restart the PVA Removal Station to continue operation.
