Hi, I really need help with this problem.
The end of my white cell cord keeps burning. If I pull off the end (the part which pushes on to the cell connectors) inside looks partly melted and it also has some tarry substance inside. It is a big problem as I am already on my 3rd cord and today when I checked it this one also seems to be burning. This morning I checked the voltage with the pool pilot and it was giving me 23 volts. This afternoon I got two separate readings of 31 volts and now earlier it dropped back down to 26 volts. I took off my pump as I do not want that to blow the circuit board. Just last week I had to replace the board which cost me 550 USD.
Furthermore, I checked the end of the cord and there was no water in it or anything. That was the reason giving to me last time why the end may have been causing problems and why the board may have been blown (through a wet cord end).
Could it possibly be the cell, which is bad and causing this problem (it has been in since approximate 3 years however the plates look clean)? Since I changed the board last week the red warning light hasn't been blinking and it seems to be working fine, of course except for the burning of the cord again.
Thanks in advance for any assistance! I need it badly!
