    GC 7890A - FID shutdown after failure to reach airflow setpoint - any advice?




      I cannot keep the FID on for any length of time before it shuts itself down. We are using Hydrogen. The setpoint for air flow is at 400 mL/min, but the instrument is barely reaching 300 mL/min before it shuts down the FID.


      I am a novice at troubleshooting GCs, so I'm not even certain where to begin. Any advice? What should I be looking at?
