hi everyone, I have posted here before about my Hayward H400 pool heater. I have had issues all summer - and I was just told by local pool company that I need two boards ($600 for both, PLUS labor) to fix it. They said if that doesn't work, they will credit me and find the fix.
I want to let everyone know that I live in Eastern PA, and we have had a TON of rain here....so its funny that when I called Hayward direct for consumer help = they told me to take a hairdryer to it to dry it out???? Does that make sense????
Here are my issues - it would work great when it was dry - when it was rainy/damp/humid - not so much. I always flip the breaker switch (we have had trespassers!) and when I turn it on 3 things happen:
1. It fires perfectly and runs like a champ
2. It cycles through and I get a CE code
3. I get no power to it at all.
Now, I did replace the Display board in June, and it worked great for about a month.
Then I got errors or no power again. But wait, I waited 24hrs - and presto it worked perfectly!!!
Now, as I am cleaning all the leaves out of my pool - I noticed water coming from underneath the heater!!!
So I need your help - do I spend the $600 to $800 to have the pool company replace the boards, and fix the leak???
Or do I can it for next season and buy a new one????
this heater was installed 4 years ago!!
Thanks for your help and advice!
