Water Leaking Under The Statim Autoclave

Water Leaking Under The Statim Autoclave

If water is leaking at the drain from the cassette bay (underside of autoclave), then do the following:

  • Remove Cassette Seal. Inspect and clean both the cassette seal and the grooves in the cassette where the seal is installed
  • Confirm that the cassette seal port holes are not damaged and that they are properly aligned within the cassette lid groove
  • Ensure that there is no debris or residue on outer edges of cassette tray
  • Verify that outer edges of cassette tray are straight (not nicked, dented, or damaged)
  • Check the alignment of the hinge (See "Statim Leaking Steam")
  • Inspect and clean steam ports on probe bracket. If you observe excess debris that is not easily removed or if the steam ports appear to be worn or damaged, remove probe bracket for proper evaluation. Replace probe bracket if necessary.
