    Jandy aqualink rs6

    My jandy controller started blinking inside the house..the main pump and water fall pimp were clicking off and on...it smelled like burning at the main control box so I put the unit in service mode...is my control board bad or maybe a capacitor?

    Clicking on and off sounds like a bad relay but burning sounds like something electrical unless your unit is under warranty you will need to contact a pool professional to come out an examine whats going on if you open it up "the panel and electrical" and take some photos i may be able to assist you via photos

    I called a pool guy today and he said to reset it..if it acts up again I'll take pics..it may have smelled hot because it was kicking on and off for a extended period of time..thanks for the help..will check back in a day or so

    sounds like you have a bad air or water sensor the water sensor should be located inside the plumbing pipe it will have a little clamp running around it follow the wires from it into your control panel and you should also see the air sensor wires there as well check the connections make sure there is no corrosion also try and plugging them and then plugging them back in if that doesn't work i'd replace them more then likely its only one of them it shouldn't be both.

    Hopefully that's it..I'm worried it's just another symptom of a bad board

    Re: Jandy aqualink rs6

    are the water and air sensor sold together? On my unit right now I have a sensor that is outside the box just hanging there and one that is mounted on top of my lines. I see this online but it looks like only one, would I need to order two of these?
