    Hayward Ecostar with stuck clock in Australia

    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a Hayward Ecostar pump from an online US retailer as it is not available in Australia. It work perfectly in every way except the clock remains stuck on whatever time I configure in the menu.

    I suspect it might be because our electricity is 50hz rather than 60hz as in the US. Does that sound feasible?

    For now I'll just run it 24 x 7 at 800 rpm (79 watts), which is still way less than the 1190watts x 4 hours per day of my old pump, but I might need to get an external controller to get full timer control.

    Investigating further, the EcoStar controller has a lithium battery in to keep the time regardless of the power state of the pump. Removing this battery, the clock resets to 00:00am. Putting it back in, the clock will remember whatever I set it to, but never advances past that time.

    I suspect a faulty controller and will raise a warranty request with Hayward.
