I have a 20KW Gaurdian prior to 2009 (not a nexus controller) and all the service alarms come in at one time along with the yellow light, and won't reset. I have tried switching it to OFF resetting maintenance and they will reset for a maximum of 30 seconds and all come back at one time. Machine runs and transfers fine.
Thanks
Chris

I actually have a few like this. It's a glitch that occurs within the controller and nothing seems to fix it. As long as you don't mind the alarms, everything else seems to function normally otherwise.

The fix is to replace the controller, which may eventually die. A lot of times, the date and exercise will not set properly either.

If you need a replacement panel, just let me know :cool:

I'm pretty sure I already know what controller you have, but if you want to post your serial number I can verify 100%. :cool:
