We can troubleshoot it, but we'll have to do it down in the control box and you'll need a meter to do a little testing, is that going to be a possibility? If so, please attach a picture of the control box with the cover off so i can walk you through the troubleshooting. Thanks, Jeff
ok, thanks, I'll wait on the pic before we go further
Ok, got them. Now I know you said you already checked the fuses, but I gotta ask. Down at the very bottom left hand side of the box is the main time delay fuse, a large one, not on the circuit board, that usually has a green or orange label on it. Have you removed it from the fuse holder and tested it out of circuit with a meter to confirm that fuse has continuity, as that one fuse will cause the problems you're experiencing.
Well, if you're reading zero resistance and not infinite, then we have to assume the fuse is good. On the other point, the heater and circ pump don't run through the fuse, that particular fuse just protects the jet pump and blower circuit.
Ok, let's move on to the board itself. Now you said you can hear the relays clicking when you hit the buttons up top. The blower comes in up on the top right hand side of the board to the two terminals, can you follow that wire from the blower to those connection points, then set your meter on AC voltage and with the blower icon active up on the touchpad, touch your two test leads to the blower connection point on the board and see if the board is putting out 120 volts or 240 volts, depending on what blower you have. We should also do the same on the incoming line for your jet pump to see if the board is actually sending power to either of these devices.
Well, I've never run into that, but it's sure looking like a possibility as those terminals going to the pump and blower should definitely have power to them if you can hear the relays clicking. You may want to pick up a fuse at Lowe's and give it a try just so we can rule it out.
Hi, the question was still showing open on my end, just wanted to follow up to see if you still needed anything, just let me know. If you've got it taken care of, please rate me on your end and it will close out the question. If you need more help, I'm happy to do so. Thanks, Jeff
