Great point! My 8 year old Intelliflo VF ((011012) LCD Control Panel went blank about a year ago so I have been flying blind on manual. I have a built-in leaky Caretaker head so ran it at low speed anyway to avoid the Caretaker energy use. Yesterday, I was trying to get the pump started as their was power to it and there was a loud pop and now it is dead with no power.
Seems the drive assembly blew and that part is over $600 so I was wondering if I could still get a 2 speed motor replacement and circumvent the electronics module? Attached a few pics of my configuration. Thx.
