    Autopilot Soft Touch Cooling Fan Not Running

    Regarding the other posts with AutoPilot board issues, one was a blown surge suppressor, and another with a fried lizard under the board, which could have caused the damage.

    Any damage within the warranty period must be directed to the factory (manufacturer). Since I cannot provide a schematic, there's nothing else I can do. However, I can find out if there are other options for getting the circuit board repaired, aside from having to buy a new or rebuilt board.

    Hi Sean,

    I am new to the forum and I have a Autopilot Soft touch system(ST-220) with SC-60 super cell. I felt a lot heat around the system so I opened it and found out the cooling fan is not running and one of the relay has some burning on it. Do you know where can I buy the cooling fan?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ray

    Hello Ray,

    The cooling fan is a 12Volt DC fan that should be available from your local electronics supplier (such as Radio Shack). I need to verify the amp draw though, otherwise it will overload the fuse.
    Keep in mind that the control box will run hot. Ways to keep it cool (-er). Maintain salinity at 3500 ppm. Increase cyanuric acid to 80 ppm. And run at a lower Cell Power (and higher output %).

    When I get the amp rating, I'll let you know.
    Otherwise, you can also contact our customer service for the specific fan.

    Sean,

    Thank you much for your reply. I took out the cooling fan and has follwing information: 12VDC and 0.7watts. I can not find any 12vdc, 0.7watts fan, however Radio Shack has a 12vdc, 1.4watts fan and same dimension. Is the SWG system has enough ampage for the Radio Shack fan?

    Thanks again.
