Troubleshooting

Oil separating but not being discharged

This may be due to fats solidifying in the oil outlet system – Check that the heater is plugged in. If it is, check the temperature in the inlet chamber and adjust thermostat setting if a higher temperature is required for animal fats. The oil outlet non-return valve may be stuck due to semi-solidified or sticky oils. First check the heater as above; if satisfactory then the stuck valve may be cleared by cleaning with the bottlebrush provided. The oil outlet assembly should be cleaned out as detailed above as soon as possible.

Oil being discharged with the wastewater even though the unit is discharging oil as normal

This is usually an indication that the unit is being overloaded and the waste is not resident in the unit for a long enough period to allow full separation to take place or the silt release valve has not been operated and there is a silt build up in the unit thereby reducing residence time within the Goslyn. Operate the silt release valve as described above.

Sinks leading to the Goslyn are draining slowly

This is usually an indication that the Strainer Basket has not been emptied. Please remove, clean and replace the Strainer Basket.

Wastewater effluent is overflowing into the center section and/or spilling out of the Goslyn

This is usually an indication that the Strainer Basket has not been emptied. Please remove, clean and replace the Strainer Basket.
