  • Oil Control Valve issue..

    Last week I had an issue with the oil control valve on my Kustodian + being stuck thus sending the oil to the oil head tip constant. So I did what the manual says exactly for removing and cleaning it. Was fine all weekend and early this week up till tonight. The last lane I did I noticed oil all over the approaches so I quickly shut the machine off. When I plugged it back stopped and was sending oil back into the oil tank as it should. I checked output wire on the PLC and its fine. Ran oil volume test watching the indicator light blinking on and off as the valve was opening and closing fine. I know it isn't the valve because the upper left number that tells me how long the oil valve is open to the oil head was about 400 numbers higher than what it should be for my house shot. Anyone know how to fix this? I've had this issue before on an old Phoenix silver box and I the valve apart and cleaned out the boogers and it was fine for years after that. It seems to me it's being told to remain open to the oil head because that number on the main screen tells me it was. Thanks!

    Either try your pattern in a different slot or reload/update your software.

    Or it could be the new thing Kegel is testing that the machine will reject any chemical that is not Kegel.

    BTW yes that is a joke. But that would be funny if they did that.

      I recently had this issue with a Phoenix-S it had to do with the oil head timing switch. They are the switches that read the wheel with the black and clear sections. The machine didn't know where the oil head was so it would just continue to pump oil to the oil head. The K+ has the same idea, it is just a proximity switch and and a "gear" that the switch reads instead of a clear wheel
      You don't have to be viscious, petty-minded and mean to be a mechanic... but it sure does help

        LOL that made me laugh! I cleaned the wire terminal block out with compressed air and all wiring for it. Checked at the plc maybe it came loose but its still on there good. I checked the head counting board prox sensor on its disc and they're ok too. So far no issues since I did this last week. I was told the same thing is problem continues that I may have to reload the software to the plc.

        Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
