Quad will not dump parts into bucket. | 7 January, 2016

Hey everybody! So my Quad 4000c has been acting funny lately. When it goes to dumb a rejected part into the dump bucket it doesn't actually drop the component. This results in it trying to pick up another part with the previous part still on the nozzle. Is there a way to increase the amount of air to the nozzle so it can dump more efficiently?

There should be a regulator to adjust the puff off on the inside left back panel. Remove the left side cover to get to it. Write down what its set at prior to adjusting it. I have also seen this problem caused by water in the system. Make sure that you don't have water running through the machine....if so....I have seen it fill up the chamber on the solenoid valve on the head causing there to be no release pressure.

Good Luck

Water can be the issue. After Christmas break we came back to find a fair amount of water build up in our airlines for the building. I will check out the regulator as well as the solenoid. Thank you. I appreciate it.
