    Aqua Rite keeps blowing fuses

    Please only ask any given question in one place. Topics merged. JasonLion

    I have owned an Aqua Rite system for about 5 years. Last year I replaced the generator for the first time. Ever since I have been blowing fuses quite frequently. Any ideas as to why this is happening and what can be done to correct.

    Re: Blowing Fuses

    Possibilities:

    High salt will increase the water's conductivity, allowing too much current. It usually senses this but stuff happens.
    Larger cell and the controller doesn't know it.
    Dirty power source.
    Bridge rectifier failing.
    Poor ventilation.
    Bent pins on the connector.

    That's about all I can think of without seeing it.

    Normally it means you have a short. Check your wires and make sure they are tight and not touching anything else. Turn off your power at the breaker box first

    See any damage to the board? Check for burn marks on the front and back of the board.

    This is a good point. Check your polarity as too it can make all the difference.
