15,000 gal fiberglass pool, 1.5hp jandy epump, jandy aqualink pda, jandy swg, de filter, led lights, shear decents
I had the pool installed about 6 years ago. Had issues the first year with the swg sensors keep burning out... turn out the pb installed the jep controller but no timer for the swg so the swg was always on/always. they then installed the aqualink pda so that the swg would shut off when the filter was off.., so I think it worked fine the first year, but for a while now, the pda loses the date time memory, and really screws up everything. I just changed the 9v battery about 2 weeks ago, and programed the pump to run at night. The first 6-7 days, no issues. Then when i was vacuming during a hot day, the pump/power just stopped. I checked all the wires with a voltmeter, all checked out fine. I turned the breakers off then on a few times, and eventually got the system back up to respond and reprogrammed everything.
since then ive lost the date time a couple more times. (Has kinda been an ongoing issue since about a year after it was installed (out of warranty).. i kind live with it, try to trouble shoot it when i have time.) I fear its the pc board that is faulty.
Anyway, today, we had the filter running for a while, later in the day we noticed, the leds had turned on and the pump was off, so i turned on the pda, and to no surprise the date/time was reset, as wall as reset all the relay/jva assignments. This time when i opened the breaker panel, 1 of the filter fuses had been tripped. So i reset the breaker, programed the pda again... but this time, the pump will not come on via the pda or in service mode. The relay clicks, i am getting 240v at the pump connection. The green light on the epump comes on. The pda says the pump is on.. but its not working. i fear the pump is now broken. (There was water and no air in the pump, so it didnt run dry.) - but it was pretty hot and sunny here. The air temp sensor had read 104, but according to my phone the temp was 93. But i am wondering if the electronics inside the aqualink is getting too hot from the sun?
Tomorrow i will replace the 9v, but i dont think that will help since the system acts as if everything is running fine... its the pump that will not turn on.
any suggestions of other things to check? Or reasons whythis happened?
