Kamoer dosing pump

Postby dawatson69 » Sat 06 Jul, 2013 1:42 am

Hi Graeme,

I am currently having trouble with my Kamoer dosing pump.
When it tries to dose it fails, comes up with an audible alarm, and displays the following:

'KSP-F
VER2.2'

Do you have any ideas what the problem is?

:cheers:
Dave

G is helping move a bussiness this weekend so I hope he dosent mind but ill try help.

Does it fault out on every channel or just one?
Is the pharmi-tube squashed? (( where the rollers are))
Is the end of the tube blocked?

Most users find it is the stall alarm and changing the dose head tube to a new bit fixes the issue

Thanks for the replies guys.
I have only noticed it on the 1 channel.
When I try to dose that channel manually it starts ok, sometimes pumps the liquid for maybe a second and sometimes for several seconds before alarming (but there is liquid being pumped out).
:-s :-s

Yup sounds like you need new tube :)

Take the head off and move the medi tube over abit to make sure it isnt squished. If that works order some more tube

Bad news. :wall:
The alarm has started sounding again as of a couple weeks ago :-s :-s :-s
I have tried several other pump heads, but makes no difference.
From what I can work out it seems like it is channel 1 only.
Any other ideas?

Cheers

Might be the motor on a stage one, if your confident try replace the motor with another one.

Very simple system

Are these units still under warranty?
If so how do I go about getting a replacement motor, or if not under warranty, how do I go about getting a replacement motor?
I purchased the controller and expansion unit in the GB.

They are pretty good man, give them a call or shoot them an email. Most distributors don't have the time to keep checking on here. I know they have some new products coming out so are prolly getting smashed (busy not drunk)

Hi Dave

Sorry for the late reply.

Please give us a call on Monday in the office if you have already not sorted the unit.
