Thank you for your help. I came up with the cross contamination verbiage from the Operating Manual...don't blame by technician for that. My literature does address all of the testing that you refer to. I will question my technician on those items. Reading some of your other posts, it appears recommended that the unit be shut down until properly repaired. Is that your recommendation? It is 5 degrees F here today in Pittsburgh and -5 degrees F tonight.
