Failure to follow these steps exactly as listed can lead to chemical
leakage and damage to the processor.
(a) Remove the top cover and left side panel from the processor.
(b) Turn both developer flow control valves, located on the input and
output lines to the filter, to the OFF position.
(c) Loosen the filter mounting clamp two full turns and remove the filter
assembly from its mount.
(d) Place paper towels or cleaning cloths under the filter cartridge to
absorb any developer spilled or splashed during servicing.
(e) Firmly grasp the upper housing in one hand and the lower housing
in the other hand. Carefully unscrew the lower housing and remove it, with the filter
element inside, from the processor.
(f) Carefully rinse out the lower housing and the filter element using
warm water. If any debris remains, soak the element until it rinses clean.
(g) Remove and clean the sealing O-ring from the top of the housing.
Coat the O-ring with a silicon lubricant. Replace it on the housing.
(h) Reinstall the lower housing and element in the processor. Tighten
only hand-tight. Position the filter assembly in its mounting clamp and tighten the
Open the two flow valves connected to the filter housing.
(j) Start the processor and inspect for leaks around the housing seal
and hose connections.
Check the hose clamps, plumbing, and rack bearings.
Perform the following lubrication steps:
(a) Apply a thin coat of AFP-8827 grease to each of the wet section
rack drive shafts under the support spacers (see figure 1-7).
(b) Also apply a coat of AFP-8827 grease to the dryer drive shaft under
Use a thin film of lubricant only. Excessive lubricant will travel along the drive
shaft and into the chemistry.
