My RJ-60+ is showing the subject message. The guys at Circupool were very quick to try and walk me through a troubleshooting sequence. They're now sending me a 'RJ60N PCB Adaptor' that goes between the control board and the plug for the cell. I installed the unit in April and haven't had to do more than adjust the output since. I brag on it every weekend. I get the part Friday...wish me luck. Has anyone else been down this road?1599049125580.png

Interesting. This is the first I've heard about this. Circupool has been very good about customer service with me and most owners where I've read their posts. Any discussion with CS about why this happened? Corrosion or bad soldering on the original board?

No real discussion as to why. The board and all contacts/connectors are clean. The install is in an 'out of the way' place, so no traffic to disturb the cable. I have a vertical install with the INLET up. The install directions tell you to treat the cable end as the INLET. I looped the cable over the PVC pipe to relieve the stress on the connection at the cell. I may ask them about this and flip my cell. I noticed that water can get down into that connection area.

Interesting that they have a fix already made up.

Tim,

Thanks for posting this, it's always nice when new solutions are posted. I have an RJ 30+ that I'm on my second year with at 40% running about 5-8 hrs per day. I only adjust run time once or twice per year. Seems to be making chlorine as predicted, never had to clean yet and I didn't see any evidence of deposits at my 6 month inspection. I would expect soon I'll see some kind of decline... fingers crossed for now.
