HI: mY name is Garry
Have you ever had this code come up before?
The code has been there for a couple of months now. This is the first time.
Before you replace any boards, try this:
disconnect the flow sensor from the board. then power on unit, if within about 10 seconds the 170 code goes away, replce the flow sensor
if you cant get the 170 code to disappear, then you may need to replace the front board
I unplugged the flow sensor and turned the power back on. The following events occurred...
power on green light on user interface board
Chlorine production flashing 00% jo
Code 172 182 186
Then yellow light and cell reversing green light
Then codes 172 182 185 186
I am not sure what the 180 series codes are about. Can you enlighten me? I then plugged back in the flow sensor and it went back to Code 170 and Service with the beeping. What do you think should be the next step? Could this problem have caused issues with the interior one touch control panel?
Ray, It appears that you are no longer getting the 170 code. the other codes are to be expected, because they have to do with the flow sensor being disconnected. I want to find what the dE code is
right now I think you may have a bad sensor,but let me check something first,please stand by
ok Ray, sorry for the delay
based on what you tried , it appears you will need to replace the Flow Sensor
would you like the part #?
do you have the sensor mounted on the cell(not threaded), or the threaded mounted on the tee assembly?
Great question! let me go check to make sure. give me 5 minutes please. Also I read about black epoxy used in the better sensors?? I will be right back
Hello Garry, The sensor itself is not threaded. There is a threaded cap that holds it on the tee. Ray
ok then you will need part #R0452500
you can order this through your local pool supplier
Please hit the ACCEPT button so i can get credited for this
if you have other questions on this latter, I'll be glad to help again!
I may have mistakenly given you the incorrect part # for the Flow Sensor. If you have the one that mounts on the Tee assembly, that # is R0403700. Double check with the supplier you get the part from to be certain.
My apology if I was wrong about this. Thank you
