If you have a pre 2011 Compupool Salt Chlorine Generator System and it is displaying odd error messages, check to see if the cord head that plugs into the cell is lose. Over time the power sockets in the cord head may corrode and melt and start to push away from the cell. A lose head causes bad contacts which generates more heat and intermittent power. This guide shows how to clean the cord head and make it fit snugly to the cell.
Tools You Will Need: Small round file, fine sand paper, small 1/4" dowel, needle nose pliers
This picture shows the corrosion and melted material that has built up inside the sockets. Note how clean the center socket is to compare how badly the others have become. Note: the outside sockets carry the power to the cell (polarity 1 and polarity 2); the inner socket is only a sensor line.
Clean the sockets with a small round file or with fine sandpaper that is wrapped around the file or a small diameter dowel. You may also have to use a small screw driver to remove the melted material that is inside the socket. When you are done, the two power sockets should look like the inner socket - but not as shiny.
Note: This is a temporary fix. If the cord head melted once it will probably melt again. We suggest replacing this cord with Compupools newer designed cord: JD363200A-11(6' cord) or JD363200B-11 (15' cord)The salt chlorine generator cell must be installed horoziontally for the system to work properly.
