Question about Jandy AQUALINK RS TELELINK KIT
My system is suddenly unable to shut itself off when the timer usually does shut it down. It indicates off at the indoor pad, but the pump continues to run. In attempting to shut it off at the outside pad, it is non-responsive to commands and does not shut off, nor does the "service" pause work either. The lights move as though it is working, but there is no action from the system other than ON. I have been able to "turn back on" at the inside pad and then "turn off" and that has shut it down (manually). Then next cycle the next day (or the freeze protection which turned it on overnight) will kick it back on, but again it won't shut off. Any ideas?
Jandy relays are known to stick. You can diagnose this yourself with a screwdriver. Remove the four screws on the outside panel. You will see a series of black rectangular relays and a lot of wires. Typically the pump relay is the one in the upper right. It will certainly be the one plugged into the left hand socket at the bottom of the circuit board.
Be sure to do all of this simply be looking. You can move the twisted red/black wires a bit to determine which relay is plugged into the first socket. Try to notice on the bottom of the relay a small black tab that is sticking out. When out, the relay is on. If the pump is running, this tab is out. If you then put the controller into service mode and the lights go out without the tab popping back in, you have a bad relay. If turning the pump off does not put the pump light out, you have a bad board.
In most cases, the relay is bad and it is a simple fix.

My indoor control board (RS6) would light up for long periods, during which none of the control buttons could activate their function. Pushing the reset button (lower left hand side of case of the inside panel) accomplished nothing. The problem was a sticky reset button (recessed) on the outdoor control panel. The reset switch itself was fine. In any case, I lightly lubed the recessed button, which now moves fine.
