BCS460 bad Temp 1 ??

Post by Burzurk88 » Tue Mar 26, 2019 4:43 pm

Temp1 with no probes attached is reading 354 F the dial indicator in the software shows about 100F, all the other 3 are reading 0 with no probes hooked up.

Version 4.0.1.

Thanks

Check your coefficients. Then test it with a probe attached.

1. Swap probes

If Temp 1 is still high, check coefficients and wiring.

If issue follows probe , probe or wiring on that probe is bad

I have had probes where the heat has ruined the probe wiring just where it goes in the jacket (propane burners).

I now use a heat sleeve

Ok, swapped probes, stayed at Temp 1. Swapped wires from temp 1 to temp 2, stayed with temp 1. Checked coefficients and they are the same as the other 3 that are working fine with the same probe. Assuming this channel is fried?
