Question about Eppendorf 5415R Microcentrifuge

1 Answer

We have an eppendorf 5415r centrifuge with a door that will not latch. If you hold down the door you will hear it latch, then unlatch. Is there a quick fix for this?

If you move it just right it will latch and you can use it. Is there some sort of alignment we need to do?

You need to check the microswitches inside the lid latch housing

Error 5 problem displaying on how to fix it?


Make sure the unit is unplugged!!!
I believe it is the lid switch. You can remove the housing and the switch is located adjacent to the latch. Test it with a multi-meter.I do not recommend bypassing the switch except to test it's operation. Serious injury can occur!!!

Eppendorf Centrifuge 5430R lid does not open after pushing the 'Open' button in front display


Probably too late now but there is usually a small hole in the centrifuge where a thin shafts can be inserted to manually disengage the locking system.

Door latch stuck


Bend down on one knee and use one hand to hold the exterior door handle in the open position while using a screw driver to disengage the door latch by inserting the screw driver's tip into the anchor hole and push the screw driver outward towards the car.

5402 error 2


Dear Sir,

In a 5402 Eppendorf Centrifuge, Error 1 states primarily for an EEPROM error. EEPROM is a tiny memory chip that stores individual details of the centrifuge, mainly the microprocessor time base (for correct time set operations), the mains voltage (115 or 230 V, to inform and set the motor current levels), and the imbalance level adjustment for the imbalance sensor. When the centrifuge powers up, these data are readen, and if all OK, the centrifuge is ready to go. If one of them corrupts, especially the 115 or 230 Volt information, we get error 1 and no start allowed.
To check and reprogram this EEPROM we have to acess the service routine. This is done by by jumping together pins 1 and 5 of X8 conector, on the base of the electronic board, located behind the power cable panel in the back of the centrifuge. There are about 20 setting or check parameters, but usually 1 or 2 of the described above need to be reprogrammed. Please e-mail me for details: phdeletr@gmail.com.

Error 2 is Motor Tach (Speed sensor) error, caused usually if the cable pops off the electronic board. But the tach sensor itself, who stays in the bottom of the motor drive, could be broken or defective.

My centrifuge 5702 rotor mentions error 3


The Eppendorf manual states that Error 3 means that there was an anomaly in the speed sensing system. The corrective action is to leave the power on with the centrifuge not spinning for several minutes and the error should clear itself.

If the error persists, then the speed sensor is probably damaged, and the unit will need to be serviced by a qualified technician.

How can i calibrate the imbalance of eppendorf 5417c


Align the magnet on motor support. Put it a litle closer to the board.
The imbalance sensor sends a signal directly proportional to the intensity of the magnetic field strengh from magnet. Pop off the display board and locate pin 12 of 8AF C515C microcontroller, its an A/D input, reading the imbalance sensor voltage. If the voltage on it goes below 1,5 Volts, it latchs on imbalance or error 2. The correct setting point is with motor stopped, if you shake manually the motor you have errror 2. Otherwise not.

When pulling the hood latch hood does not open. You can hear the cable moving but not unlatch the hood


Get someone to press down the hood while you pull the lever should open when opened adjust the cable and grease the catch.
