This is my last ditch effort to fix this thing before I fork out a grand for a new, inferior, unit. I have the original instructions with troubleshooting and have been in touch with Raritan too.
With the breaker on, I tested all the wires, relay, timer, fuses for voltage and they were all correct and flowing. When I turn the timer knob, nothing happens, except the timer ticking down. No lights, no meter reading on the unit, no motor running. The next step is to check the leads with the timer running, there is no power anywhere, not through the relay, not the timer, nowhere. The guide says that the relay and/or timer is bad. I replaced both. Nothing happened. I should note here that Raritan does not make parts for my unit. The timer came from Holt Marine, its made for this unit. The relay is your standard coil that you can get at any marine motor shop. Also I ran jumper cables directly to the tank and the motor runs fine.
I am at my wits end with this thing. It seems like there is something so basic that I am overlooking. Your just supposed to turn on the breaker, turn the timer, and start flushing. It should work and the PO said it did!
