at the beginning, everything seem to be normal as usual.  ran an initial priming  w/ oxide Si wafer to condition chamber and process recipe.  the cycle was 30 min. with succes and no incident.  cycle complete, unload success, but venting not successful.  it states fault-"pump-out time exceeded" & alarm- "lock excessive pump down time alarm".  chamber not vented completely and software communication lock -up, not allowing to proceed to the next or alternative step.
