  • Kustodian Plus not cleaning properly

    Hi there,
    Im helping a local centre with there Kustodian Plus, the machine is about 18 months old, I personally use a Kustodian Model B so I am familiar with most of the adjustments.
    This is what we have tried so far.
    Confirmed 11 mls of cleaner in the 4 stream test, this has the DC cleaner pump
    correct crush on the vacuum head, confirmed that the foam roller and paper are sitting on the lane (correct unwind time)
    Have tried CX4 AND Fission at different dilusion rates, currently they are using Prodigy for lane oil.
    Last cleaner spray is 57 feet.
    If I increase the cleaner volume to 20-21 mls it cleans the lane but the pump is running very fast and it soon blows a fuse.
    Any thing you can suggest I would appreciate.

    Cheers Harry

      How is your squeegee adjustment? Should be set at 120 thousandths. How old is the squeegee? How often are you stripping and oiling your lanes? What is the condition of the water you are mixing the cleaner with? Is it soft? These could be issues. Let us know what you find.

        What's the cleaner ratio? I would try Defence/C. Fizzion won't work well in hard water environments and I personally am not a fan of the concentrate cleaners.
