    during regeneration it shows e-1 and the wheel quits rotating

  • Shane_keady Feb 28, 2009

    The large grey wheel got stuck and resulted in the other two wheels being unable to turn and the unit giving an E1 error.

THis has happened to me a couple of times and i have fixed it by doing the following:

1. slide the electronic display unit off its base
2. spray a bit of WD 40 on the 2 gears right next to each other (they are gold and black on my unit)
3. spray a bit of WD40 on the large grey wheel on the other side of the 2 gears. The 2 gears are supposed to turn the grey wheel, which in turns pushes a little black plunger in with one of its three little prongs. Use a screw driver to make sure that the plunger is moving freely - push it in and out a few times and put a bit of WD40 on it.

The whole error code is about that large grey wheel not moving - it is the "magnetic disc" that the owner's manual refers to.

Finally, reposition the elwectronic display unit - make sure it is tightly secured in its original position, or it will not work.

Unplug the power to the display unit and then re-plug it back in. The unit should go through its cycle on its own then...assuming you don't have any damaged parts. Hope this helps!!!!

    This fix worked perfectly and took me 5 minutes. Make sure to push in the little black plunger a few times to get it to work correctly. I'm guessing this will have to be repeated maybe every year to ensure the problem doesn't happen again. Thanks.

    I also have had more difficulty with this if the water softener is filled very full with salt - I am guessing the dust/grit from the salt gets into the gears and the gears don't like that very much. I have made a point of keeping it about 3/4 full and have not had a problem in a long time with that method.

Pop cover off with 2 hands, it is the top 6 inches of the unit.
Slide 4x3 inch display towards the 3 plugs to expose plunger gears and wheel in question.
Used Rem Oil gun oil to lube up the gears and spun the grey wheel by hand.
2nd time plugged back in with the display back in it's proper location, the unit is up and running.

I woke up to a beeping Water Boss with an E1 code and this string has helped solve the issue. But I had one more step beyond lubricating the gears. First, one item to add, to remove the display unit slide it to the right. With the display removed I lubricated the gears as suggested and I noted that the gear on the small timing motor moved around a lot, and when the motor spun the control wheels the gear was binding up. I then looked carefully at point the gear attached to the motor and noted a threaded shaft end with no nut, and a small nut on the top of the water softener unit below that. My 20+ years of engineering experience kicked in, or maybe it was the last episode of my favorite supper hero, Captain Obvious, and I concluded the nut belonged on the end of the shaft. To do that unplug the timing motor from the controller, remove the two screws that hold the timing motor in place and take the timing motor out for access to the shaft end. Carefully thread the nut back on the shaft and tighten with a 1/4" wrench or socket. The put the timing motor back, you may have to wiggle the grey control wheel to help mesh the teeth. Plug the timing motor back into the controller and remount the controller. Thank you to Elizabeth and Jake for getting me close enough to figure it out.

Why does my car runs good but shuts off about 5 to 10 miles down the road but if u wait it will crank back up?

Inline filter could be blocked so when you stop the
blockage drops back down the line,so it will re-start.Other
breather pipes in the engine compartment could be clogged.
They are only rubber pipes which lead to the engine,not hard
work,just remove ones nearest the middle of engine and clean
inside them.Not with soapy water!!!! A rag and long screwdriver
or something similar.Then check air filter and see if blocked up with
leaves and rubbish,you can bang these out but would recommend
leaving out and getting new.None of this is complicated,just
common sense,you are making it easy for the car to breath again.

Can water in gas cause the check engine light to flash

A flashing check engine light means turn the car off immediately or severe damage can occur. It usually means unburned gas is going into the catalytic converter. Water in the gas can cause misfires where the gas does not ignite in the cylinder, allowing unburnt gas into the catalytic converter. It might be an ignition coil is bad but could be water in the gas. An obd meter could tell if it is one cylinder or multiple.

My night vision scope will not turn on. My LEDs work but you can not see anything in the lens. Yes the cap is off. I tried new batteries. It has very few hours of operating time. Help!

Hello, Welcome to the world of Russian night vision system. That is right, Night Owl Optics Cyclops NOCC3 is manufactured in Russian. The biggest problem with these monocular and binoculars and even scope is that they use cheap 1st generation Russian image tubes and everything else. It would be cost prohibitive to have it fixed, that is, if Night Owl Optics will fix it for you. Hint: Auction it on Ebay as night vision parts. Sorry, GB...stewbison

My IR780 is completely dead - batteries schecked ok

Hello, first a few questions. Vivitar NV IR780 is it water proof? Has it been in the water and or around large bodies of water? Has anyone tried to work on it? If it got salt water in it, it's done. Salt water will cause electrical shorts results short/burnt components. Also, if someone try to repair this NV devise and it is manufactured for marine usage. Marine application NV devises are epoxied together. Once the impervious barrier to water is broken then water can infiltrate this water proof devise. Some times even dropping them will break the water proof barrier. Let me know what you going to do with NV monocular. I'll see what i can do. stewbison
