My name is***** see your question stumped the panel here.
I just logged on and saw you had not received an answer yet.
I am willing to help you if you still need assistance. Just let me know how the project is going and I can help you or close this question for you.
Once again I apologize for the delay.
is the circulator pump running? Is there any flow of water when turned on at all?
ok Shawna the issue is the pump motor not running.
Without the motor running the water doesnt move through the pipes.....if the water does not move through the piping a switch cannot verify operation so nothing happens.
Now it must be determined if the motor is getting power but not running = bad motor.....or...motor is NOT getting power = circuit board.
can you open the service doors and take a picture and post here? Then I can direct with drawings
the only negative is that I do this in my spare time and come and go depending on my service calls.
So if your patient we can work through it. If I do not respond in a timely manner it is just because I am busy, but will respond as soon as I can
first some study material....
See the diagram above the board matches and tells us where things are..
Then note my arrows and the position of pump 1 terminals...wire color etc...see if you can identify the black, red and white wires that run to the pump 1.
Then once we get a handle on the locations we move forward....one step at atime..
May I see a pic of your meter please so I know we are set right?
test a working outlet and tell me voltage...we first test the tester...if that makes sense..
correct..any outlet we know is working...black in one side of plug and red in other...any outlet in the home will do as lonng as we know it is hot
tell me reading
Then see Here
and tell me readings
and finally HERE
ok I see....You just did a me to me..
I understand totally. Take your time and just respond as you can...another glitch in this sytem however, is anytime you respond to me it forces me to make a response...so in other words once you are done for a given session...just let my last message sit without you responding...or everytime you send a message I have to send one back...make sense?
