Rough and turbo pumps don't initiate when turning on an Agilent 6460 LC/MS after a 3 month shut down. There are no obvious leaks and the oil and filters are good. Any thoughts appreciated.

  • Hi drmbutton,

    Just checking in to see if everything working ok. Thanks for the reply soccerdad. Fuses tend to be an issue especially if pumps have been off for awhile causing the oil thicken up which makes the pump work harder and could cause fuses to blow. I recommend to replace oil if pumps are going to be off for extended amounts of time.
