Default ACP AUTO-VAC System

Hi All,

I have recently just purchased the 230v ACP Auto-Vac System and was having a go at my first part.

I was able to suck the bag down, and after a while the motor kicked in due to a drop in pressure however it was not at full power and looked like (via the gauge) that it wasn't driving the pump.

I touched electric motor case and it was hot 75 o/C, so i turned it off .....

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong ? or do i have a fault.

Thanks in advance,

Adrian

I would contact ACP directly and they should be able to help you solve the problem. Are you 50 Hz or 60Hz in your country?

The 50HZ could be the problem. Again check with ACP directly.

Hi Sunnybreeze,

Yep 50Mhz is correct for the 230V version - thank you for highlighting it.

Just an update to say that Ihave contacted ACP and their after sales service has been EXCELLENT!! Iappreciate good customer service (which is a rare thing) and have recieved it in spades from ACP. Still haven't resolved the problem, waiting for a part but 10/10 so far for the assitance provided.

Cheers,
Adrian

Hi All,

Just to close this off - have received a new pump and it works a treat.

Cheers,
