Having trouble with your first generation Gameready?
Here are some simple steps you can take to figure out what is wrong with your unit:
- UP (under pressure), OP (overpressure) and the pressure sensor alarm indicate a problem with the air press system. Sometimes these problems can be resolved by reconnecting the wrap as follows:
- First, turn the unit off and disconnect the wrap;
- Next, turn the unit back on (with no wrap attached);
- Then, turn the unit off and back on;
- Finally, connect a wrap and make sure that it is applied tightly.
- You may need to try this same process with a different wrap if one is available.
- If this does not resolve the problem the problem is probably with the air press sytem and part or all of it may need to be replaced by a trained technician.
- LF (low flow) or dry pump
- You can check the flow yourself by turning the unit on (make sure there is a wrap connected) and turning the temperature control to its coldest setting.
- Then open the lid of the unit and watch the water flow back into the tank. It should be coming out in a steady stream, not dribbling out.
- If it is just dribbling out you will probably get a Low flow error or a dry pump alarm (it might happen quickly or take a few minutes).
- This could indicate a problem with the fluid pump but the first thing to try is to clean out the filter. To do this, turn off the unit and unplug it.
- After emptying the water from the tank reach into the bottom and find the filter protruding into the tank.
- The filter has a metal clasp that needs to be pressed to release it.
- Once it is out, clean it off in a sink and reattach it to the unit.
- Make sure it is attached securely before refilling and turning the unit on.
- Systems Error - Unplug the unit and drain the water and ice.
- Check the filter in the bottom corner of the unit.
- If it is not securely attached then reconnect it securely following the steps outlined above.
- Let the unit sit for 20-30 minutes then refill it with cool water (no ice) and try to run it again.
- If it runs OK then you should be able to run it as usual.
- 20/20 Error - This indicates that the unit has failed in testing one of the 5 major components at start up.
- The problem could be systemic (multiple failed components) to simple (disconnected tube).
- This error can only be resolved by a trained technician disassembling the unit and testing each component and system in isolation.
- Unit won't turn on / no power
- If there are no lights on the unit at all there is a good change that the power supply is not working so try replacing it.
- If the unit has a light but won't turn on the problem is most likely the control board or the keypad and one or both of them will need to be replaced by a trained technician.
