Q: My sterilizer doesn’t display or printout, but the fan on back is working. What does this mean?

A: In this case, the fuse protecting the power supply is blown. Refer to your user manual and replace the fuse as instructed.

There are multiple reasons why your cycle could have halted.

1. If the display reads:” The Door Has Opened, Sterilization Cycle Aborted, Press Stop To Continue,” then that means the door switch opened after the initiation of a cycle. To fix it, press the STOP button and allow the chamber to depressurize and cool, drain the chamber, and restart the cycle, ensuring that the door is securely closed this time.

2. If the display reads: “Cycle Halted Due To Heatup Exceeding Maximum Heatup Time, Push Stop To Reset,” this means the temperature in the vessel has not reached the specified set point within 115 minutes. To fix it, make sure your water is filled at the beginning of the cycle, and ensure that there are no leaks or cracks from the solenoid valves or door gasket.

3. If the display reads:”Cycle Failed Due to Over Temperature Condition, Press Stop. To Continue,” the temperature inside the chamber has exceeded more than 5C above the set point. Retry by pressing the STOP button, allowing chamber to depressurize and cool, draining the chamber, and restarting the cycle.

4. If the display reads:”Cycle Failed Due To Low Temperature Condition, Press Stop To Continue,” it means that the temperature inside the chamber dropped more than 1C below the set point in a liquid cycle, or more than 5C in any other cycle. To fix it, follow the same procedure as #3.

5. If the display reads:”Drying Cycle Aborted Due To Closure Of Door, Open Door To Continue,” in means the door switch closed during the drying phase. In this case, open the door. The drying cycle will continue automatically from the point at which it quit.

Q: After disassembling and cleaning the valve, how do I reset it back to the correct exhaust value?

A: Most of the time after you disassemble and clean the valve, you need to replace the 3 small sealing O rings inside the valve. You may need to replace some other parts depending on the condition of the exhausting valve. Please visit sterilizers.com for more information.

Q: One of the autoclave carts seems to have a few droplets of moisture. The other cart is always dry. However, the 30 minute drying cycle doesn’t seem to make the moisture less. Is it necessary to dry every load for 30 minutes?

A: You may try to open the door a little bit during the dry cycle to allow the steam out of the chamber. The steam isn’t escaping the chamber, which is probably what is causing the water residue.

Q: I have a working Amsco 613R and need to know the cleaning instructions. I have autoclave cleaning solution but I’m not sure of the cleaning procedure for this particular model. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A: I don’t know which autoclave cleaner you are using, but you need to following the instruction on the autoclave cleaner. According to our experience, the Tuttnauer Chamber brite is one of the best sterilizer cleaners.

No matter what autoclave cleaner you use, after using autoclave cleaner, you need to make sure to drain out all the water (both chamber and reservior) and wash it with fresh distilled water. I highly recommend you to do this twice to make sure no more cleaner remains inside chamber and reservoir.

Please make sure that at beginning, you need to allow the AIR out first. Let the air bleed valve open for a while. If there is too much air inside the chamber, the pressure will swing wildy during operation.

All the temperature knob on the All American Sterilizer can do is increase or decrease the temperature. The All American 1915 Sterilizer can get to a maximum of 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
