Well I have went and done it this time!
I have a Jandy Aqualink RS 8 controller with an Aqualink RS Power Center
My 2 year old Compupool CVA-24 valve was not opening when Solar was activated. It worked fine all last year. I watched the valve, no movement. I switched the toggle switch on the valve acutator to the off, then the up position, valve did not move. So I opened up the Power Center cabinet to check some stuff, thats when I got in trouble.
I was checking voltages on the JVA Sockets to see if the Solar JVA had voltage. I did not see any voltage on the Solar JVA socket (it had 3 wires, not sure I checked voltage correctly) so I pulled the connection on the Return JVA socket, turned on the Spa, and verified it had voltage.
Then I checked the Intake JVA socket and I slipped with the the leads on the volt meter and I am pretty sure I shorted the two socket prongs together. At that point the whole Power Center powered off. I did verify 120 and 240 volts coming into the power center. I toggled all the breaker on the units a couple of time to no avail.
So I am hoping I just blew a fuse somewhere. It was getting dark at this point so I closed up the Power Center for the night.
1. Where would I look for a possible fuse?
2. What else might I have damaged?
Thanks in advance for any help.
