Part of me is starting to think that it's actually the softening filter that's causing it. I use the same one you do and had the same issue.

Re: Bad Temperature Sensor

I've had both kinds fail on me. But I'm still going with the galvanic corrosion theory. My most recent one had a small spot with deposits on it and underneath the deposits the metal was shiny. All the rest of the probe was a uniform thin black deposit. Agreed. I think you are spot on. CCS was a bit...

Re: Bad Temperature Sensor

Sensor replaced and back in business. :) The new sensor was "silver" vs the one I cleaned which looked bronze or cooper (referring to the part that goes in the water). I'm not sure if originally the sensor tip was stainless/chromed or whatever metal it is. But if so maybe there's some galvanic react...

Re: Bad Temperature Sensor

Well. I'm going to resurrect this old thread. Yesterday morning had the same issue occur on the group sensor. My symptoms are the the temp varies wildly but the heating element stays on. Then it detects the failed sensor and alarms. I pulled the sensor and it was calcified like goodboyr's picture. I...

Re: The Scace Rental Program

I rented it a couple weeks ago and have since returned it.

I sent an email to Gregor at the address on his webpage (see signature in the first post) and he got back to me promptly.

Re: Offset

Well it seems I wasn't far off. Using the scace it looks like my machine requires a +4F offset. One thing that is interesting is that I tried the PID settings that Chas recommended in a post a while back. When I used these settings I needed to drop the offset to +1F. So I put the PID back to factory...

Re: Offset

Chas, PID settings are default. Though I planned to change them to what you reccomended in another thread after I get the offset calibrated to see how that works. The temp is set to 200F. Maybe it's me and I'm used to a slightly hotter shot from the E61 group, but the shots seemed a bit sour at the ...

Offset

Hi I purchased a Dream from CCS a few weeks ago and am pretty happy so far. Even though it seemed to have some growing pains over the past couple of years, I just couldn't pass on all the features it offered at the price point... So I hope that's all behind LaSpaz :grin: The one thing however that s...
