Our lab got an early-80s model Sorvall RC-5B ultracentrifuge last year (used, obviously) and so far we've not been able to get it to actually spin. Colleague picked up a GSA (fixed angle) rotor recently to see if maybe it would only spin with a rotor installed but still no action.
Door latch works normally and refrigeration compressor turns on in response to temperature settings so it's obvious that power is getting to the unit. The START light, however, has never turned on that we've seen. Discovered yesterday that the START indicator bulb was bad (filament visibly broken) so I replaced it with a good bulb (same type, known to work) but still no light and no spinning. Noticed a rectifier(?) or similar component attached to inside of START button and wondering if that could be blown, etc.but anyway, in the interest of further troubleshooting I have been searching far and wide for a SERVICE manual and/or a schematic of this unit's electronics. We DO already have the *user* manual (i.e., this one: ) so I don't need anyone to point me at that, I know how to use google. Usually devices like this have a service manual in addition to a user manual but I have been unable to find the service manual so if anyone has it or knows where I can get it, our labfolk would be very grateful.
Also even just a schematic / wiring diagram would be nice. I had this happen once a long long time ago.
The resistor array, as the dumping point for current generated in braking, fried and the motor followed right along. However the most common reason for catastrophic motor failure is sloppy housekeeping. Aguious solvents wicking around the boot and onto the motor.
I have no good solution to this problem as I am across campus from the units that fail most often. It is probably a cultural thing. If they turn the power off between runs leave the lid open and wipe it out. If they don't power off between runs leave the lid closed.
Sounds easy but they can't seem to manage it. 90% of my floor model super centrifuge repair is from 5% of the machines and all from one department in one college. Right now I have an RC-3 motor on which one of the feild wires broke at the pin in the plug and fried the corresponding brush and the comutator. It is ready to go back into 'service'. Or ready to go back into abuse.
