Total Newbie Here (pool owner for 2 months).
The set up: A spa with an overflow waterfall into the main pool. There are 2 Jandy Valve Actuators (24VAC) that are controlled by an "air switch."
We recently had a heater installed and for about 3 weeks everything was working normally. When the air switch was depressed, the valves would divert the flow from the pool to the hot tub jets and the heater would kick on. Now, nothing happens.
The valve controller is probably at least 10 years old, and I was trying to troubleshoot it myself and avoid paying for repairs/electrician. The input is 240V to a 24V magnetic contactor and then to a 14 pin socket relay. The wires for the valve actuators are attached to the socket relay. Everything is wired according to the schematic (attached), but when the air switch is depressed, the only thing that seems to happen is that the magnetic contactor is activated.
Is this a salvageable situation or should I just break down and spend $200+ on a new valve controller?
Thanks in advance,
