I'm hoping someone here is familiar with Pentair troubleshooting.
So similar to a recent poster, my pool guy has been dumping tons of chlorine into my SWG pool. The unit (IC40) was ~5 yrs old, and not making FC, so I figured it didn't owe me anything. I wish he would have told me.
So I replaced it with a new IC60. I also added an IntelliPH (if I can automate I can get rid of pool guy altogether thanks to TFP!).
Now, the SWG restarts or stays in startup mode pretty much all the time. Starts up for about 2 min, then is green/green for about a minute, and then shuts off, goes blank for a second or two (no lights at all) then restarts for 2 min, and repeats this cycle, etc.
I poked around the block diagram in the manual, and it seems the IC60 is driven and powered by the:
Pentair 520723 Intellichlor Printed Circuit Board Assembly.
So I ordered a new one.
I definitely feel like I'm doing this by Braille without enough diagnostic info.
The Easytouch diagnostics say the intllichlor is ok and that the salt is at 3300.
Another possibly unrelated symptom is that the screenlogic intellichlor values have gone
That is not a typo. (I -may- have swapped pool and spa, but the 127 is accurate. This happened 3 times. I thought it was a startup anomaly, so I didn't think much of it). Now i wish I had taken a screen shot. I was able to reset these values and they seem to remain correct now.
When I had the intelliph in line with the IC60, and checked the intelliph history, it showed it had achieved about 120 successful doses and slightly more failed, and it won't dose if the cell is not green/green, so im assuming this is somewhat intermittent, or. It took a while to finally fail completely. I disconnected it, but am thinking about reconnecting it to gather more info.
So im assuming a questionable power supply, since I -believe- (but am not sure, there are power transistors and a heat sink on it) that the board mentioned above creates the IC60 power.
So, any thoughts, insight, advice, or troubleshooting options?
