Answer to "Anyone have the service manual of Matachana M20B, thanks."Here is the 21E schematics. Maybe its close enough to the 20B, which is probably an older table top model. [document: Matachana Autoclave 21E Circuit diagram.pdf] Good Luck.
Answer to "Power failure alarm indicated"The vent can work off of both AC or Battery. Check the AC adapter. If it is not providing adequate power to charge the battery, then the battery is actually being used to power the vent. There is a RED light to indicate when the battery is 5 hrs to depletion. Also check the battery. There is a manual in the Database with schematic of the electronics for the vent. This should help with troubleshooting. Good Luck.
Answer to "does anyone have an AHP 300 service manual"The 3 and 6 years maintenance are “factory” overhaul level maintenance much like your 60,000 or 120,000 miles car overhaul. Allied will not give those out as they are their money maker for service revenue. They will claim that they have provided maintenance (verification procedures) for the other years (1,2,4, and 5). I have run across this type of situations many times. Try go to your sales rep and see if s/he can cut one loose or know of someone at the factory. If that failed, then you would have no choice to send it to the factory. Tell your sales rep that you will recommend to your administration to not buy from Allied Healthcare in the future. That might work. Good Luck.
Answer to "Braun Thermoscan IRT 4520 POS error"«POS» = position error If the probe has not been constantly placed in a stable position in the ear canal, a sequence of short beeps will sound, the «ExacTemp» light will go out and the display will show an error message («POS» = position error). IRT 4520: Clear the display by pushing the «I/O» button once. Take care that the positioning of the probe is correct and remains stable. Care and cleaning The probe tip is the most delicate part of the thermometer. It has to be clean and intact to ensure accurate readings. If the thermometer is ever accidentally used without a lens filter, clean the probe tip as follows: Very gently wipe the surface with a cotton swab or soft cloth moistened with alcohol. After the alcohol has completely dried out, you can put a new lens filter on and measure. If the probe tip is damaged, contact Braun. HI = too high Temperature taken is not within typical human temperature range (34–42.2 °C or 93.2–108 °F). Calibration The thermometer is initially calibrated at the time of...
