CE code

If there is any breakdown in communication between the

machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes

and the unit beeps once. Units with repeated CE errors may

be diagnosed as follows:

SERIAL COMMUNICATION CHECKS

1. Check for contamination on P4 of the machine controller

and P2 of the motor controller. If contaminants exist,

disconnect power to the unit and gently scrape any

contaminant off the pins.

2. Check the resistance values between the serial

communication pins with the connectors in place

(resistance reading should be less than 10 ohms). Make

sure the harness is connected properly.

3. After ensuring integrity of this connection, run the unit

again to see if problem still exists. If so, continue with

CONTROL CHECKS.

CONTROL CHECKS

1. Check motor winding resistance at P6 of the motor

controller (in the console). If an open circuit is found, this

is an indication of problems with connections to the drive

motor or the motor itself. See DRIVE MOTOR CHECKS.

2. If winding resistance is correct, check motor controller

fuse; if open, replace motor controller.

DRIVE MOTOR CHECKS

1. Check connection of the lower harness to the drive motor

and pump motor.

2. Check if the drive motor thermal protector has opened.
