    waste tank full cut off stopped working

    Hi. Do you have any idea how the waste tank full cut off works on my Ace Chemspec. Mine has stopped working. The float switch is good as it activates a full indicator light on front of machine but does not cut machine off when tank is full. It used to work OK.

    High Temperature Problem

    My Chemspec Ace Truck mount dumps water when I set to the higher temp of 240. When set on 180 everything is ok. I'm guessing the problem is the sensor. Where is it? There seems to be a few sensors on the exchangers but I have no idea which one it is. Can anyone help?

    Just building an old Steam Geine Rebel 45 back up and on first initial test the water pressure was not very high. Guessing the Hydra Cell needs a rebuild kit? I also noticed the water temp did not got very hot. Does the water take longer to heat when pressure in heat exchangers is low?
