PM me with your email address and I'll get you the glycol refill procedure.

Sounds like you need to rebuild your Stepper Arm:

Hi Mike,
I'm new to the forum, found it while duckducking zymatic troubleshooting.
So I have an old zymatic from 2007 that I am trying to get back in shape. It needs glycol refill among other things, I understand from reading posts here. Also I get stepper failure error. The arm is moving and fluid circulating, however it doesn't hit the intended hole and thereby spilling a lot during attempting a cleaning session. I have red about entering a maint menu for adjusting the stepper, but I haven't found a description for how to open this hidden menu. I have removed the back lid and had a look, but before I go further on my own, just checking if there is a maintenance dismantle recommendation+description for dismantling steps. Also I wonder if there are any documents with lists of parts and dimensions for parts like hoses and so on. Thank you for your valuable contributions on the forum. I am also interested by the way, to sign up for ordering the controller card mod and steel step filter you mentioned earlier on when it becomes available.

PM me with your email address and I'll get you the glycol refill procedure.

Hi Mike, thanks for your reply. The PM GUI for new message don't seem to be availible for my user yet, [Edited by Moderator] but I can leave my email here (remove added spaces): [deleted]. @Mike Howard can you send a pm to @brew79, instead? He can answer you, but not start his own pm's yet, being a new member. [/Edit]

Thank you very much!

Hello all,
I didn’t see this answered, but if I missed it, my apologies.
I recently picked up another zymatic on eBay, mainly for two extra step filters, but it seems to work fine, thus I would not mind doing simultaneous brews.
The problem is that it is assigned to a different user and I am not sure if there is a way that I could change it to myself.
Do any of you know how to reassign the user?
I have not invested the time to create a pi server and I am still using picobrew.com.
Please advise and thank you for any help?

I have 2 Zymatic Step filters, hop baskets, and a bag of odds & ends that came with the unit - power cord, ethernet cable, rubber keg lid, etc.

I'll ship them if you pay for shipping/packaging.

Hi Mike,
I got the PM but I am not allowed to reply to PM nor generate a PM at the moment. I have not enough user activity yet, according to anti spamming policies enforced. So I will get back to you later when I have overcome this barrier. Thanks so far.

I sent you my email address...

Not sure what this is, but I believe it came with the original Zymatics. If you know what this piece is (and would like it) shoot me a PM and you can have it for the cost of shipping:

I don't need it, thanks.

It's a "wrench" for attaching the hoses to the side of the Zymatic. They said it should be used as the nuts can be over tightened with a real wrench

Huh! So it is!

Well, I’m going to guess nobody needs a fake wrench, but if you do, let me know. Otherwise I’ll toss it here in a week or so.
