6181C Option 015?

I have have "adopted" some old test equipment that was being thrown out from the company I work for, including a HP 6181C DC current supply.
It seems to be generally in good condition, however with the current control set to max the actual output is only about 10% of the selected range.

On the back, the unit is marked with options 028 (230V AC) and 015 (which isn't mentioned in the service manual).

I'm wondering if this "option 015" somehow explains the problem, or if the unit is faulty? I know the 6181 is no longer supported, but maybe someone here is familiar with it?
