VWR Clinical 200 Centrifuge Error 14

Went to run our VWR Clinical 200 centrifuge and there is an Error 14 on the screen. Cannot get the error to clear. Manual says its a forced shutdown error and by opening and closing the lid it should clear out. However, it does not.

Error 2 in 5417R,how do i solve it?thanks


Error 2 on this model indicates that the imbalance sensor is tripped. If you run the unit with an empty rotor and it does not error, then it simply means that your load was imbalanced. Make sure to put vials into the unit opposite each other, as below.

If it displays "Error 2" with an empty rotor and you did not notice a vibration, then the imbalance sensor is broken and must be replaced. Do not attempt to run the centrifuge without the imbalance sensor, as serious injury may result.

I repair these machines, but you would have to ship it to me in Ohio, which would probably be very expensive.

Here is a rotor balance chart:

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.

What is a Centrifuge?


Wikipedia says: A centrifuge is a piece of equipment, generally driven by an electric motor (some older models were spun by hand), that puts an object in rotation around a fixed axis, applying a force perpendicular to the axis. A centrifuge is also used to separate the components of blood in blood banks.The centrifuge works using the sedimentation principle, where the centripetal acceleration causes denser substances to separate out along the radial direction (the bottom of the tube). By the same token lighter objects will tend to move to the top (of the tube; in the rotating picture, move to the centre).

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.

S7 error message on Beckman Avanti J-E centrifuge


follow the instruction in the procedure in the last paragraph of thi link

http://www.labwrench.com/?community.posts/threadNo/962/subject/System-Error-S7/
but i think this will reset the rotor calibrtion or configuration. my system will stop the run on rotor ja-20 at 5000 rmp; and it change the rotor id set on ja-14 t 18 at 10000rpm.

Error E11 in the machine Candy Alisé GO W 264 D, could you please tell me what this error means, and how to solve it? Thank you! Manuela


Open top cover of the machine. From the back on top there are 3 screws, remove them and slide back top cover to remove it. You will see a metal part with 2 thin red wires(sensors) atached. One is probably loose and the machine shows error code e11 and will not centrifuge. Make sure it holds and try to run the machine again.
