Hi there,

Am turning on the solar for the first time this year. Have set everything up as I think it should be but the actuator isn't turning on. I can go into service mode and manually turn on solar heating but if I am in regular running mode with 'solar only' enabled, nothing happens.

You can see the settings below. Pump schedule is active and the pump is running, just at the lower non-solar speed. Is there something else I have to do to enable heating that I am not remembering?

Thank you

Mike

Go into the Diagnostics menu & check the solar temperature. Maybe your panels aren't warm enough.

I have the same issue and just started a post explaining my problem but have not received any replies. Have you solved your problem, if so what was it?
