[3dem] Gatan zeolite cycle

We are unable to run a zeolite cycle on our Gatan 626 holder. The Smartset controller shows 0.7A of current being delivered, but the temperature does not go up. 

however, we can set the "smart heater" control to 100 deg C and heat the holder that way, and that seems to work. But is this a different heater from the the one that heats the zeolite? 

Has anybody had a similar issue? Is it the zeolite heater that is broken or is it a glitch in the controller?
