    Aquarite T3 diagnostics - no amps or current reading

    I have an aqua rite T3 SWG. It has not been producing chlorine for a few days. I had the cell tested at the local pool store and it fine.

    I was given a set of readings to compare for the diagnostics. I have a 0 reading for my #3 reading which I was told was the amps and a 0 reading for my #4 reading which I was told was volts.

    Before I replace the board, is there anyway to just replace a piece on the board? Is there any way to reset the board?

    Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

    No current and no volts sounds like the transformer is bad.

    Take a look at this topic. There are several good suggestions in there. One common issues is a burned out current limiter that can be replaced easily if you are handy with a soldering iron.

    Jason,

    Thanks for directing me to the posts on the current limiter. I ordered from digikey and was able to replace the piece. I found that CL was cracked at one of the legs.

    I also found it out how poor my soldering skills were.

    My cell is currently producing now.

    Thanks again for the help.
