I have Aqua Rite Goldline chlorine generator. Recently LCD lights went off. Sometimes "power" and "generating" lights turns on for about 30 sec. and then off again. Display turns on even if the lights are off. I did troubleshooting as recommended . Everything was understandable until I came to the rectifier input test.
According to the troubleshooting guide 12VAC must be tested between ground and pin on the board where orange wire connected. So, when wire is plug-in to the board I observe 12 VAC between ground and orange wire. When testing as suggested by the manual between ground and pin , measurement comes as 24VAC.
According to the guide if no or low voltage then problem in the main board. If voltage 12VAC then it's a rectifiers. But what do I do with the 24 VAC? So is this a rectifiers or a main board issue?
Also I've noticed that after orange wire plug back in unit will start working for a day or two.

Power 125 V
Rectifier output 23
Yellow wires 24
Blue-White 121
Vio-Grey 122
Fuse ok
Rectifier input as mentioned above: orange wire connected 12 v , disconnected 23v.
So I guess everything point out to the thermistor?

Move the switch to off and then press the little black button next to the display and record all of the readings.

Then, move the switch to auto and recheck the readings.
