- Chart ran
past 12 hours. Follow sticker in door to Stop Chart and Start

look the same from the front, but do not have all the pens.

How long does the print cartridge last?
Typical print cartridge life is two to six months. Time period is dependant on hours per day use, along with the amount of information printed to the chart.
Can't go to forward flow - what should I look for?
Be sure the timing pump is running. Next, check the front display of the 9900. If set to display, STLR OUT should say ON - if not, you are not above cut-in temperature. If it says ON, you have reached cut-in. Check the flow diversion valve microswitches (shorted, stuck or not aligned). Check for power at the flow diversion micro-switches also - you may have a blown fuse in the 9900 - if this is the case, the legal chart plate seal will need to be broken in order to change.

Are the AV-9900 and DART Thermometer probes interchangeable?
No - although both contain dual 1000ohm elements, the DART probe contains additional circuitry. They are NOT interchangeable.
Does the AV-9900 use special charts?
Yes - only one style chart is available for the AV-9900.

Can I run the system longer than 12 hours without diverting?
Yes - at a point prior to reaching a full 12 hour cycle, press the CHART key twice. A menu will appear allowing you to place the unit in HOLD. The rotation will stop, but all legal controls will remain active. The system will not divert as long as you remain above cut-in temperature. Within 5 minutes, you must replace the chart. Press the CHART key twice to return to the menu, and select NEW. A new chart will begin to print, giving another 12 hours of run time. No breaks in data will occur - all data collected while changing the chart will be properly recorded.
My 4-20 current output to my valve does not change. Do I have a bad output board?
No,you probably don't have a bad output board.Check to see if the controller is in the manual or automatic mode.
