    Chlorine Generators

    The chlorine generator box has been getting very hot lately to the touch. After opening the front panel, I noticed that there is a transformer like box with copper wiring on the upper left hand side. This is very hot to the touch, and to the outside of the panel box. Just wondering if this is normal, since I had not felt it this hot before, thanks !!

    It is likely normal. They get hot ... although you have not mentioned what system.

    We need to know a lot more about the unit than you've given us. They do tend to get hot, but some more than others.

    The unit is an Aqua Rite, and is about 6 yrs old. I have noticed that there is a small, black and flat, pancake looking resistor, and it very hot to touch.
    We had this replaced last year, and it does get very hot. Don't know what else I can say, sorry. But thanks.

    Common for the black current limiter to get hot and fail:
