General Procedure

  1. Power the Reflow Oven on.
  2. Select the respective ink/paste. Recall, Green is V1 Ink, Orange is V1 Paste, and Blue is Sn63Pb37.
  3. The oven will warm up. When its ready, press "Enter" to open the tray.
  4. DANGER: The rails could be HOT! Take caution. Place the board securely on the rails.
  5. Press "Enter" to close the tray.
  6. The preheat will take 2 minutes. The baking process takes about 30 minutes for traces and 3 minutes for the paste..
  7. The drawer will automatically open to initiate the cool down phase. DO NOT remove the board until the oven says all the stages are complete. DANGER: The rails are HOT!
  8. When cool down is complete, remove the board from the oven, and turn off the oven.

Safety

  1. Always follow the instructions on the LCD Display. It is your guide that keeps you safe.
  2. When the tray opens up after baking a board, be patient and let the board cool down. If you handle it while it is too hot, it can burn you and shift your components (not good).
  3. Once you are finished using the Reflow Oven, clean the inside and turn it off. RESET THE SPACE.
  4. If you do not want to risk being burnt by the rails when you place your board in the oven, open the tray and place your board BEFORE selecting a profile.
