    Aqua rite chlorine generator control box has stopped working.

    Hi all,
    Yesterday when I went out to check the temp in my pool, my aqua rite chlorine generator control box was off, no lights or display. I checked the power at the plug 120volts it's good, but when you unplug and plug it back in, it just makes a big humming noise and quits no display or any lights. I took the face cover off to look inside, I don't see anything burnt, just circuit boards.

    Thank you in advance for the help and Info.

    I can't help with the SWG issue, but just wanted to point out to be sure to manually chlorinate with bleach until you get it working again.

    Re: Aqua rite chlorine generator control box has stopped working.

    Hello again, As I was looking in my paper files on this aqua rite chlorine generator today, I found a fuse taped to the manual. so I went out and I changed the fuse, the old one still looked good, but it wasn't any good after all. I plug the control box back in and
    now it is working , well all the lights are on and display, I'm going to go check and see if it is making chlorine.

    Well it seems to be working now, higher chlorine content at the return line while generating. Next time I will double check Fuse before posting.

    Thanks to all
