My t-cell 15 aqua rite shows the following:
check salt On
check cell On
The Board started saying HOT instead of the salt reading three weeks ago. I have been shocking it meanwhile to get by until I resolve the issue. The salt generators are really simple gadgets. the grids are clean and never have had build up over the years. The DE filter is clean. The plugs have good contact. The rep from Hayward to me that the sensor inside the cell was blown and to bypass it. Well, we did and it's not the problem. In fact, the sensor did change the resistance when we changed the temperature on it. So, I don't think it is the problem and I am beginning to think that the problem is the probe before it in the line that is giving incorrect info to the board. The cell is getting hot because it melted the black silicon inside. Somewhere the temp is not being relayed properly or the parts that relay the information are too HOT. In fact, the pool was 88 degrees but the read was 176, then 124, then 74 for the temp. Obviously it is not right.
Any help before I get bullied into buying a new cell?
The cell is clean, I cleaned it with the proper mixture.
