Operating the vacuum

The oven itself does not provide a vacuum, rather it provides three in/out ports at the back which are controlled by the knobs located above the door to the right of the pressure gauge. A vacuum pump must be connected to the port labeled "vacuum".

The manual for the temperature controller can be found here. Instructions to tune the controller are included in the manual. It is recommended to tune the controller to avoid large temperature overshoots.
