I have a Aqua-Rite system, Model AQ-Rite. My pool had begun to get cloudy so I checked the Goldline Control box and neither the 'Power' nor 'Generating' lights were on, salt level was reading 2900. I shut the system off, sprayed out the cell, and restarted the system. After about 30 seconds both the 'Power' and 'Generating' lights came on but only for about 15 seconds and then both shut off. I restarted the system and this time watched the 'Cell Voltage". With it reached approx. 17.0 volts both lights came on but the Voltage contuinued to rise until it reached about 19.0 volts, then the system shut down, voltage dropped to 1.1 volts and began to climb again. This cycle continues endlessly. During this time the 'Cell Amperage' remained at zero.
I read one thread on this board that seemed to apply to this, but all the voltages referenced in that thread were low voltages (14.4 or so). It suggested that it was the Current Limiter on the PCB board that had failed. Seems to me that the high voltage would/could be caused by the same part failure. Not an Electrical Engineer, though I am comfortable working on borads! Does this sound plausible?
Thanks for help and suggestions.
