I have a Aquarite t-15 salt water generator. It has worked fine for 7-8 years and I did replace the cell last year. ALso, I replaced the limiter for $10 3 years ago. This year I am not sure it is generating chlorine. The lights all work but it has a constant reading of 2800. No chlorine being generated but lights are on and it seems to be “working”. I had the cell tested and it worked fine at 2 different pool stores. Therefore, it must be with the box itself.

Any input would be appreciated before I decide on replacing.

Here are the readings:

2800
70
6.5
0.00
34p
-0
Al-0
R 1.58
T-15

The voltage should be 30 to 32 when not generating and 24 to 29 when generating.

4.5 to 7.8 is for the amps.

The limiter is probably bad.

What @JamesW said.. they do go out. Try putting a binder clip on the thermister and see if it changes anything. If you got your first replacement from the same place I got mine they sent you two.. so you should already have one. :)

What is the binder clip actually doing? Heat sink? Can I have a part #for the limiter please. Ty
