Micro Switch Timer Assembly 9000, 9100, 9500 Fleck 15314 ( V7-3A17D8-263 )
Inner "activation" switch that turns on the timer motor to start the regeneration process.
My Fleck 9000 began continuously cycling tonight. Manual says a broken or shorted switch or timer is faulty. Is there a quick way to determine switch or timer?
*** Check with ohm meter, or disconnect switch.
It's usually this one, 15314, ( if the timer motor NEVER stops running ),
Both switches have the snap characteristic of a good switch. If I remove the program wheel so I can get at both switches (remember it is continuously cycling) and depress either switch, the cycling pauses until I release it. Pausing works for either switch being depressed, so do I assume that means the switch is operational??? If so, does that mean the timer is bad?*** It's the SWITCH
I could pull the wires and test continuity on each switch but that would be a pain.* Not really. I think the pain would be paying some one else $ 100 to do it for you.
I unplugged it at "service" and just after the bottom piston arrow moved to the new tank so I can use it until I can repair it.** Good thinking.
** The only other thing that causes continuous regeneration is a water leak, that is running your meter down to Zero.But if that is not the case, then it's just the Switch is not "opening".. it's staying "closed".
