sam® Safe Mode
sam® Safe Mode is in use when the applicator light turns from 'BLUE' to 'RED'. This is a safety feature that monitors the temperature of the applicator. If the temperature becomes elevated, the applicator light will turn from 'BLU' to 'RED' and will vibrate for 1 second.
NOTE: Do not turn the controller 'OFF'. The applicator will automatically cool down in 3-5 minutes and then turn back to 'BLUE'.
If you turn the controller 'OFF' during the sam® Safe 'RED' mode; it will mess up the calibration of the internal electronics. If this occurs, you will need to reset the system.
Reset the System
Plug in the charger to the controller and recharge the unit overnight. This will RESET the internal electronics.
