LORAD 160 DIFFICULTY-HELP!

We recently received new cooler hoses through our supply system that cause our LORAD to create an interlock-flow error. They are constructed with the same materials as the old ones, and seem to allow coolant to flow into the tubehead. We have troubleshot everything, but we know it comes down to the new hoses. Has anybody else had this problem? This is a first for us, and we have used plenty of new cooler hoses. Any suggestions?

Re: LORAD 160 DIFFICULTY-HELP!
Are there new fittings on each end as well? Are they quick disconnect type fittings? Sounds like these would be the area of concern, not just a piece of replacement hose.
