you can tell if a tube is broken w/o cooling down ... just do the static leak check ...

Thanks, everyone, for your quick responses.

The consensus is that my reduction reactor is probably broken. I'm cooling things down and getting ready to inspect it.

I know the autosampler was working, because I watched it go and samples drop.

I'll be back if that doesn't fix the problem.

Thanks again,
