Subject: [Histonet] Sakura VIP flood?

Any of you users of the Sakura VIP 5 have any problems with the fume
control water somehow siphoning and flooding into the guts of the
instrument? The manual tells us to put between 2-3 liters of water in
there. We had issues with this happening early on, and were told we had
too much water in there. We now use much less, and until 3 days ago had
no problem with it. This morning came in to water all in the overflow
tray, dripping down from the inside of the instrument on to the floor,
and an empty fume control water bottle.

My in house service guy will be calling Sakura today, but wanted to know
of others' experiences with this issue. I'm not interested in bashing
the product, it's worked well for us for over 6 years. Just wondering if
it's happened to anybody else.
