This message will be displayed if during a normal Heat Up stage the system determines that there is insufficient water in the Chamber to complete the cycle.
This determination is made by the combined input of two sensors, the Water Electrode and the Safety Thermostat Also if a power failure occurs during the Heat or Sterilization stage after the power returns the system will check the Water Electrode to see if there is sufficient water in the Chamber in order to resume the cycle.
If not the cycle will be aborted, the message LOW WATER will be displayed, and the Cycle Fail indicator will light Possible causes for this message are:
1. Insufficient water entered the Chamber at the beginning of the cycle. Check for proper leveling, a dirty or shorted Water Sensing Electrode, a clogged Water Pump, a partially clogged line or that the Air Outlet Valve is stuck closed
2. A leaky Solenoid Valve, Safety Valve, Air Jet, Door Gasket, Door Bellows or a pipe fitting is allowing water or steam to escape at a higher than normal rate
3. A power down has occurred and on power up if the water Electrode tip is dry the Low Water message will be displayed
