Did you change out the shortstop breakers? Please explain what you did here and attach a photo of the control box so I can take a look and perhaps I can tell what is wrong. And do you have good 12 VDC power to the rest of the circuits?
Any chance you got one in backwards?
And if you have a 12 VDC test light or small digital multimeter this is a lot easier to check.
The copper post has to go towards the power source. It should be red.
Yes............and that should be red in the box there. It might change later. IF we do a phone chat you need to have a test light or meter for testing to make it go faster. And attaching a photo to your post would really be helpful.
Bookmark this and you can come back to it again later. No time limit.
Did you check for power INTO and OUT of all the breakers you replaced? Most controls for jacks have an inline fuse as well near the control itself.
I just got a call for an emergency Service Call and so I have to go...........I will opt out of this and let another tech take over. I think one or more is on this morning. I will check back when I return.
HI my name is Robert...
Who is the manufacturer of the Jacks? IT should say on the controls... IF you have voltage on each side of the breakers (on each post) then they are not the problem. You may have other fuses but need to know the manufacturer of the jacks....
ON the pad should be a small p/n number can you get that? I might be able to send you a wiring diagram.... Robert
As I said there could be other fuses can you get me the p/n number on the control pad? I need the number off the control pad, it will be in fine print.
The pad you use to turn the jacks on and off, it should say power gear and on the bottom should have a p/n number on it.... Robert
Click HERE and see if that is your pad. On the orange wire at the solenoid will be a 10 amp fuse AND on the back of the control pad will be some fuses, if that is yours. They used that control pad with the fuses on it during this time frame they will be marked XF1 to XF5... Robert
Right on the back side of that control pad should be fuses, look on page 14 they will be marked XF1 to XF5 they are glass fuses.
Sounds good, let me know....
IS it marked XF1 to XF5?
YES they are the fuses, see if you can twist and pull them out.
Sorry I could not remember, been awhile.
Did they all test good?
I do not have a pin out all the manual says is they are 5 1.6 amp or 5 3.15 amp.
I have to take care of some business, if the fuses look GOOD see the wiring diagram on page 16/17 it will show you what each wire is and where it gets it's power from.
I will check in when I can to see if you made any progress.... Robert
Check the wiring diagram I sent, see the orange wire off of the pump solenoid 10 amp and make sure it is good.
Running out of ideas on this, check and make sure you got all your grounds hooked back up as well when you changed the cb's...
