Manzanita PFC20 operation

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list
I scored a Manzanita PFC20 charger to round out my Zilla setup and wonder if anyone has advice - I did the volts trim so that it stopped charging at 99.6V. Now when the battery is at 98.4V is will not start back up when I flip the breaker, even if I turn the voltage trim way up. The blue LED is On solid.

I'd like to trim it to 103V but I can't get it to charge now. I can't get the blue LED to turn Off, even if I unplug everything for a few mins.

I'm not sure what voltage pack it was setup for prior. Do I need to mess with the auto restart potentiometer VR6 behind the faceplate? Or follow the elithion advice?

I'm looking at the Programming section of Elithion Lithiumate manual - Manzanita Micro (I have a lithiumate BMS).

If it's not responding according to the instructions in the manual,
give Rich Rudman a call at Manzanita, he knows ~everything~. Be
prepared to spend some time on the phone, you'll learn lots about
that everything.

If necessary, send it back to them for repair. Mine's been back twice
after I blew it up due to carelessness. The first repair was
inexpensive and fast. The second time it was also fast, but
definitely not inexpensive.

The blue led is the timer time out after the yellow voltage limit led
comes on.

If the rotary switch is set to 3 o'clock, it times out immediately after
the yellow led comes on.

Does the yellow come on along with the blue?

 During the first charge it did, I started fully charged, tuned the volts trim until Yellow On, Blue blinking, then Blue solid On after timeout. For the second charge the blue comes on immediately and no yellow, even if I turn the volts trim up.

Thanks,Chris

 Solution: I had the 16 position rotary switch timer adjustment set to time out instantly, once I set it to 15 mins or whatever, the charger is now working. Yay!
