My PCB from 2007 appears to have died. I tested the transformer, and I am getting 18vac out of it. I know I should be getting 24 to 28. I definitely have power coming to the sub-panel as I was able to bypass the relays so that I can continue to run my pool manually. So where I am confused is that I am getting power out of the transformer....just not the amount it should be getting. Before I buy a replacement transformer or board, is there anything else that I should check?

Thanks!

88,

Welcome and sorry you're having trouble. I agree with Allen, make sure you're getting full power to the transformer primary windings first. There's always a possibility of a connection issue. If the primary is at full voltage then your transformer has failed. Did you have anything unusual happen like lightning storm or power surge or any other major failures with the pump recently?

I did have a actuator apparently short out.... wasn't moving and was very hot.

Could be related to that issue. Reason I ask It's a little unusual for the transformer output to be reduced instead of shorting out. Have you been able to verify what the voltage is on the primary windings of the transformer?
