Pulsing 288


Post by Murff »

I rebuilt a 288 today and the bloody thing started the semi-usual pulsing after rebuilding one of these little beastards. So, I does a quick search on the CCF here and, after going through a few old threads, I found the easiest fix!

I can't find the thread now (CRS kicked in) but anyway, it comes down to filling the fount!!! In that thread, there was a picture of the side of a lantern box that stated, if lantern starts to pulse, it's telling you it's time to refuel.

So, I filled the fount (NO, I didn't tip it to fill it to the top. If you do that, you will have a bigger problem).

Fired her up and, no more pulse!!!

This is just an FYI to tuck in your head somewhere and try to remember!

XCRS is for those who have progresses past CRS. It has three meanings X(extreme)CRS and X(room temperature)CRS. I can't remember the third.....or was it the first.......
