Draining the Reservoir Statim 2000 & 5000
If you must service the reservoir, ship a Statim or move the unit more than a short distance follow
these directions:
Statim 2000
To drain the water from the reservoir of the Statim 2000, use a high volume evacuation (HVE) hose from
a vacuum system. Insert the hose into the reservoir and allow it to suck the water out. If a vacuum system
is not available the water moat he siphoned from the reservoir. Do not turn the Statim upside down and
clump the water out.
Statim 5000
If a vacuum system is available follow the directions for a Statim 2000.
If Suction is unavailable carefully move the Statim 5000 to the edge of the work
surface. Lift the front left corner of the Statim 5000 upward and remove the drain
tube from the clip located on the underside of the unit. Gently pull the tuhc out as
far as possible so the free end can be positioned over a water container. Remove
the plug from the end of the drain tube and allow the water to drain from the
reservoir. When water no longer drips from the drain tube, replace the plug. Lift

STATIM
the front left corner of the Statim 5000 Upward, and reinsert the tube into the clip.
Push the excess length of tubing back from where it came
Changing the Cassette Seal
The cassette seal will last approximately 500 to 800 cycles. There should never be steam leaking
from the front of the Statim or water dripping from under the Statim. To change the seal follow
these directions:
1. Place the cassette lid and the new seal on a clean work surface.
2. Examine the position of the old seal in the cassette lid and arrange the new seal in the
same orientation.
3. Remove the old seal with a small screwdriver, sliding it behind the corner of the seal and
pulling the seal from the channel. Clean any residue from the seal channel.
4. Excessively lubricate the new seal using liquid hand soap (provided with new seal).
5. Align the holes in the new seal with the holes in the lid.
6. Install the holes first, then install the four corners allowing the sides to hang out. Be sure
that two indicator squares are visible in each corner.
7. Starting in the middle of along side insert the rounded edge of the seal into the channel.
Work from the middle to one corner, then from the middle to the opposite corner. Install all
four sides the same way.
8. Check to see that the seal is fully inserted into the channel on all four sides. Check the
corners to see that two indicator squares are visible in each corner. Check the two holes to
be sure that they are centered in the cutouts.
9. If there is a small steam leak or water under the unit after installing the new seal try
another cycle. It may take time to seat the new seal. If the leak persists, remove the seal and
reinstall. If unit continues to leak after installing seal for the second time try a new cassette
lid or tray.

Care and Maintenance of the Statim Cassette
Use a non-chloride cleanser (i.e. Cameo, Zud or Bar Keepers Friend) and a green scratch pad. At
least once a week clean the inside of the lid of the cassette and the inside of the tray and the
outside edge of the lower tray. Two or three times a week take some liquid hand soap (not antibacterial) and lubricate all exposed surfaces of the seal, to keep it soft and supple. After cleaning,
rinse and dry, then apply a liberal amount of Stat Dri to the inside metal surfaces. This SciCan
product helps the water dry inside the cassette in less than one minute once the cassette is
removed from the machine. Clean the outside surface of the Statim with a mild soap and water.
The seal in the cassettes will last approximately 800 cycles and if maintained properly could last
longer.

Diagnosing Water Quality Sensor Problems
The water quality sensor detects whether or not there is sufficient water in the
reservoir, monitors conductivity of the water in the reservoir and prevents a
cycle from starting if the water measured is unsuitable. The allowed value of
dissolved solids is 5 ppm or less.
The water quality sensor can fail in one of four ways:
1. The sensor always indicates an empty reservoir.
2. The sensor always indicates a reservoir full of good quality water.
3. The sensor always indicates a reservoir full of poor quality water.
4. The sensor indicates random water quality readings.
A water quality sensor failure is caused by: poor quality water (drain reservoir

STATIM
and refill with known good distilled water), a broken or damaged water quality
sensor assembly (replace water quality sensor) or damaged electronics on the
PCB (call for a RA # and return to SciCan for PCB replacement).
Before performing diagnostic procedures verify that:
1. The reservoir is free of any debris and the water quality sensor is clean.
2. The reservoir is filled with good quality steam distilled water so that the water quality
sensor is completely submerged. If in doubt about water quality, drain the reservoir and
refill with steam distilled water containing less the 5 ppm total dissolved solids. Use water
conductivity meter (part #01-103139S).
3. The leads of the water quality sensor are securely connected to PCB terminals labeled
PROBE J4-3 and J4-4.
4. Nothing is connected to PCB terminals labeled FLOAT J4-5 and J4-6.
5. The PCB is clean and dry (both sides). Pay particular attention to terminal block J4 and
components on the upper right hand portion of the board.
Diagnostic Procedures
Always Indicates an Empty Reservoir
Using a jumper wire, short together the PROBE terminals of the PCB (J4-3 and
J4-4). Attempt to start a cycle.
1. The cycle starts. PCB is defective.
2. Message, "REFILL RESERVOIR". PCB is defective.
3. Message, "WATER QUALITY IS UNACCEPTABLE". Water quality sensor defective.
Always Indicates a Reservoir Full of Good Quality Water
Disconnect the water quality sensor leads from the PROBE terminals of the PCB
(J4-3 and J4-4). Attempt to start a cycle.
I. The cycle starts. Check PCB for a short between FLOAT terminals J4-5 and J4-6.
2. Message, "REFILL RESERVOIR". Water quality sensor defective.
3. Message, "WATER QUALITY IS UNACCEPTABLE". PCB is defective.
Always Indicates a Reservoir Full of Poor Quality Water

STATIM
Disconnect the water quality sensor leads from the PROBE terminals of the PCB
(J4-3 and J4-4). Attempt to start a cycle.
I . The cycle starts. Check PCB for a short between FLOAT terminals J4-5 and J4-6.
2. Message, "REFILL RESERVOIR". Water quality sensor defective.
3. Message, "WATER QUALITY IS UNACCEPTABLE". Check PCB for a short between
PROBE terminals J4-3 and J4-4.
Random Water Quality Readings
Start a cycle when unit is cold.
1. As the cycle proceeds and the unit warms, water reported as acceptable while the unit was
cold causes a "WATER QUALITY IS UNACCEPTABLE" message. Check water quality
using a water conductivity meter (part #01-103139S). If water quality is not within
acceptable standards or if the reservoir has been contaminated, clean the reservoir and fill
with known good steam distilled water.
2. After a few cycles, as the unit warms a, "REFILL RESERVOIR" message is displayed.
Short together PROBE terminals J4-3 and J4-4. If this clears the message and allows the
unit to run several cycles before the message recurs, the PCB is defective.
