Gee Teri,
that's a first for me. I've used the VIP 5 for years and never had this 
happen. I know, I've been a lot of help.

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 

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.
