Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

We need to change our vac pump oil and filter & turbo blower oil. The alarm gives us 500 hours to do it or the laser won't run anymore. We can have Amada do it or do it ourselves and save a bunch of money. No AMP or Warranty on the laser anyway. We changed the oil in our old laser before. An LCE 655. Is there anything special needed to change the oil in this one? After you change the oil will the alarm automatically go away or does it have be reset somehow? Thanks.

you're gonna want a funnel with a long flexible tube on it. otherwise its pretty straight forward. just make sure you don't overfill it

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

it will run lol you just have to reset the timer again deejay

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

yeah thar too lol

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

But how do we reset it? You can't just press alarm reset. That doesn't work.

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

you have to manually input the new countdown ill look at mine to see if I can guide you through it

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

Oop. Forgot about this this one. YA, I just changed the count down clock and the alarm went away. Now we just have to make sure we change the oil and filter. Thanks.

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

hmm i would not reset the timer without changing oil. my boss would never let me stop cutting to change oil if the machine was not down lol

RE: Changing oil FOM2 3015 nt

Preventative Maintenance is always worth shutting machine down, that way your in control otherwise if you wait for THIS to change THAT, THIS might not come about in time and THAT just earned you a lot more Down time, not so important with an oil change but a good rule of Thumb2thumbsup, but you shouldn't reset timer until oil change is actually done. rockband

I agree 100% but I got tired of the alarm window popping up all the time. And every time the owner walks by I remind him I need a vac pump filter so he knows about it. Only so much I can do.
