Will not ventilate when switching from bag to vent mode.
Hello all, I have a 7100 that will not ventilate when switching from bag to vent mode. I have checked the microswitch on the lever and the GUI does show indicate which mode its in. I can here the vent engine actuating but I get no movement from the bellows and no movement of air across the flow sensors, thus I get no waveform on the GUI. I have done all leak tests in service mode and in normal operation mode, with no leaks. I have done all calibrations and diagnostic checks in service mode with no problems. The s/w is 1.3. Any help insight would be much appreciated. Thank youReply

Leak not found and strange ventilation control

We have been comisioned to do maintennace on a 7100 machine, the first thing we found was a leak of 15 liters.  We have replaced all the o´rings and preventive maintenance kits (as this machines have never been done so).  The leak has droped to 500ml, but the manual indicates <200ml.  Any sugestion on how coudl we look for were is the leak?.  Machien passes all the tests after we have done a complete calibration.  But when we setup the volumne like to 250ml, it measures 240ml or so, but the pressure increases to 30-31 cm H2O, and if we set up a volume of 500mL, the pressure goes up to 90 cm H2O.  could this be a cause of the leak we still have?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
