I have an ATL 1000 that for developing my 4x5. It worked great when I got it and it still works great with B&W. But with the C41 process (E6 also I believe) it stops in the middle. The process starts running and about halfway through it's like it loses power. Not a sudden stop, but like an RC car running our of batteries the lights start to fade and the drum eventually stops all together. The water does heat up.
Not sure what could be happening. Is the water bath for color shorting something out? I took off the bottom and lee no leaks inside or circuits that are visibly fried. I've pulled pout tanks and cleaned thing up and checked for bare wires somewhere. But no matter what I do it will no longer get through a complete color process. I still use it for B&W with no problems at all.
Any insights would be appreciated. I don't really know where to go from here or what part I might need to replace. With no Jobo service centers I feel pretty stuck. I want to get this thing working again.
