Avanti 20" Range ER20P0WG. Oven will not turn off.

does it have a Sabbath Setting? This is a Jewish thing that leaves the oven on low all the time because Jewish people can't turn anything on on a Saturday.

Mmm, just looked at the model. That is VERY basic. My guess is the thermostat has failed.

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:

How to deduce the centrifugation speed from the scale provided?

Do you have a biomedical group in your facility or somebody who's responsible for maintaining your equipment? If you do, they should have a photo-tachometer. They can place a piece of reflective tape onto the rotor to get you the true rpm speed. You probably need an accurate speed anyway to ensure proper rcf for your samples.

Rotor seems to be frozen on to spindle; all literature for the HL-4 rotor indicates that the rotor is floating (ie is not attached with any screw or other fastener). Have tried pulling using balance gear...

Have you seen this video with advice?

Another tip is to cool the rotor down (either by getting the refrigeration to kick in if it is a refrigerated centrifuge) or perhaps by filling the the rotor with tubes full of ice-water (or something colder...). Everything will shrink slightly, which means the rotor will become a slightly looser fit on the shaft.

S7 error message on Beckman Avanti J-E centrifuge

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

Sudden speed increase from 1000 to around 2300 R.P.M.s

Hi. Thanks for your question. The centrifugal forces on the rotor increase dramatically as the rpm goes up. In most cases a manufacturer will use a smaller diameter rotor in a 2 pole (3600 rpm) rated motor than they do in their 1800 rpm (and lower rpm). If the larger rotor is now spun at twice the rpm because of a winding redesign, the rotor is suddenly required to handle 4 times the centrifugal force it was designed to experience (force is increased by the square of the increase in speed). If still you looking for more clarification you can visit and download the entire workshop manual. It has all the information along with the diagrams for better understanding. Good day!

Sewing machine grabs fabric and won't let go

I dont think the top thread spool feed is the problem, I sounds like the upper thread tension is set at too low a number. Normally on that model it should be set at 3 to 6.
