Hello, please tell me a lot about your technical skill sets and if you have a multi meter or not... I need well focused photo of the unit wiring diagram, taken close up and well lit... use the 'attach files' link at the lower left of your dialog box to get that to me.
I can coach you appropriately from there.

I got it working by turning power off and on again, then selecting a speed. Not sure what speed is correct though. Just picked #1.
Pool and Spa Expert: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 3 years ago
Good work, let me know how it goes, try other speeds if you like, post back if you need any help.
