Vacuum Issue

I am having an issue with the ultracentrifuge in our lab. When the temperature is set to 4c, the vacuum fails to fall below 1000microns, though the temperature drops to 4c.

If I break the vacuum seal I can hear the air rushing in, meaning there was some sort of vacuum.

If i change the temperature to 25c, then the vacuum will be able to fall below 100 microns. After the vacuum falls, then I set the temperature to 4c and the vacuum remains.

What is causing this issue? Vacuum failing to form only when it is cold, but it is able to keep vacuum after reaching proper levels and changing the temperature afterwards.

Temp 503
Researcher says its not pulling vacuum; diagnostic error says rotor temp issue.

What does TEMP 503 mean? What part should I order?

Service Mode

The manual I have says to log in as administrator and select the Service item from the main window menu, but there's no Service item. Instead it says My Options, and the only option is to change the picture on the administrator button. Is there another way in?
