Sorry to hear of your problems. We've been using the unit for over a year
now and have NEVER had any problems with the purge cycle (perhaps because we
daily use the absolute alcohol and clearant from the previous nights run for
our purges?) I cycle 20 minutes in the clearant (a xylene substitute) and 10
minutes in the alcohol. Also, I must admit that so far I have not had a need
to have the unit come out of delay around midnight. Hope this might help,

	You know it isn't bad, but I have had some regular problems with the
	cycle.  About every 2 months I need to unclog the vent lines as they
	clogged with paraffin.  We change the purge about every 5-10 runs
too and
	we still get this occurring.  The 2000 software also has a glitch in
	that can create problems if the delay cycle and the first station go
	midnight at the same time.  Other than that it is actually a decent
	workhorse when it works.

	Hi, Histonetters:
	Does anyone have any experience with the Ventana Renaissance Tissue
	Any pros or cons? Thanks.
