I noticed my mom's pool lady putting a chlorine tablet into her salt pool. When I asked why the pool lady said, "Oh, yeah, it hasn't been generating chlorine for months," not that she bothered to tell mom. My mom is broke (yet somehow not broke enough to take care of her own pool) and I offered to attempt to fix it before she has to call someone.
So, I'm trying to diagnose the problem myself. The only LED that is ever on now is the one for Power, no others are on or flash even at power-up. This is what I get from diagnostics:
without pushing the diagnostic button: 9900
1 push: 64
2 pushes: 32.5
3 pushes: 0.00
4 pushes: 100P
5 pushes: 0
6 pushes: AL-5
7 pushes: r 1.40
There is no unit remotely controlling the chlorinator so that 6th push should read AL-0. I have tried to change this (when "AL-5" is displayed switch from auto to super repeatedly until it reads correctly) but it won't budge. I think that's too simple though, as the unit used to work like a champ.
Please respond with any ideas on how to fix this problem.
Thanks in advance,
