  • Propress not pressing

    I have a soon to be 3 yr old rp330 Corded. Today after a handful of 1" and 3/4" joints the d@!n thing would not complete a crimp. No diagnostic lights come on no nothing. I let the machine set a few mins, and tried again. It worked beautifully for 4 more crimps, and then blamo same thing happened again. I will call my service center in the morning. Have any of y'all experienced this , or no what the cause could be so it doesn't happen again? Thanks in advance for any info

          Mine is around 3 years old, I have the compact unit. And I have used mine a pretty good amount, copper and pex. When my oring went it was not at the service light stage yet.

            That's Master P-Rick to you. Or... Master Pee-Rick? (I forget exactly but I read it somewhere around here)

              my best guess is the pressure relief valve is sticking open and not allowing the pump to pressurize the system.
              try pushing the relief valve during the cycle to free up a sticking relief valve.

                Thanks y'all for your info. Got mine dropped off I will know something in 3-5 days. I got lucky and my viega supplier loaned me a 330 cordless. D@$n I just might have to buy this thing. That's probably what my supplier is hoping for.
