When you say flow valve are you referring to the flow switch that connects when water starts moving?
And when you cut wires to flow switch did you wire together thus bypassing the switch?
Thank you, ***** ***** the pump "resets" is it dropping the breaker, gfi etc? And then you have to reset?
Ok I understand.
It cycles on/off in 10 sec increments when the flow switch is bypassed.
But with flow switch unhooked it runs steady?
Can you put a meter on the 2 flow switch wires when unhooked...run unit...and tell me if the voltage dances while the pump runs?
You will be measuring the control voltage, not the pump voltage.
I must go offline for a bit but will respond as soon as I log back on.
The control voltage will/should be 24v ac. I am interested to see if we get a variation instead of seeing a steady 24v.
and that is with the pump running and wires removed from flow switch?
then we have a board issue.
There should, at a minimum be 24v sitting on the wire waiting to cross when the flow switch closes. This indicates a board issue which would explain start/stops and fluttering response from flow switch.
I would contact this company
The pump and heater are line voltage items. Our problem is the low voltage signal.
It will help when you can see the back of the board for any hot spots...and going over the front with a magnifying glass helps also.
If I told you a component on the board I would be guessing...I am sorry
No problem at all. Just do what you can and respond when you have info.
Keep this on your side without responding....if you do respond the system forces me to answer.
I will wait for your info and I wish you well.
Yes that is correct. They want you to leave the board in the box and change/service as one unit.
The board is commonly removed. This is similar to the mattress tag myth.
Once your screws are out you can easily start to work the board off.
Thanks for the update.
At this point we wait to see the result of the board diagnosis.
Once you are satisfied with the the service you have received here, you will then locate the rating system of 5 stars and rate the service accordingly.
I hope all goes well.
Just keep this on your end until ready or the system will force a response from me.
Respond when ready to proceed
