I have a Jandy AquaLink RS One Touch Control System. (2006 Model 8158 with Firmware L).
Last night (not during regular schedule) I noticed the pool filter was turning itself off and on every few seconds. I could not control it from the indoor (wired, not wireless) control panel. I ended up flipping the breaker to turn everything off.
Today after work I turned everything back on and everything seemed good (including the date and time, so my 9volt battery is working).
The filter ran fine for about 30 minutes until I looked out the window and noticed the filter was off. I looked at the control panel inside and it said the date was 08/04/04 (i think that was the date. I cut the power to the system to ultimately turn everything off) and that everything was off. I reset the date/time and filter ran good again for a few minutes.
I again looked out the window and noticed the spa, spa heat and spa light was on as well as spa blower. (The spa switch hasn't worked in years so I disabled it in the system). The pool light began turning itself off and on, and the Polaris cleaner was moving around (booster pump on). The control panel inside said everything was turned off. I went outside and looked at the PCB and it said everything was also turned off.
I ended up turning the breakers off and the gas to the heater to turn everything off.
Does anyone know what's wrong? Is it the Power Control Board? If so, does anyone know the part number of the new compatible iAuqualink wireless panel that I can buy to replace this existing one, or is there something else wrong that I'm not catching?
Thank you all for your help!
