My Hayward Aqua Rite control...
My Hayward Aqua Rite control panel stopped working (it is only about 4 years old). When I plug it in again, it will work for a few minutes but then it turns off completely.
What is the problem and what do I need to do? Thanks.

This is a problem that is often a bad
control board.
Before replacing the board check all
its connections . Make sure none are loose
or corroded.
If you are comfortable with replacing the board yourself
replace the board.
If you are good at soldering you may be able to
repair the board.
There is a round black ( about the size of a quarter)
component that is often bad. It will be burned
or broken.
If you have the board professionally replaced you
nay be able to get a better warranty on it.
I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
