HI, this was an unfortunate surge that has fried the power board Assembly in this unit. it has also fried the main control. this may be a total loss unless, you are considering replacing the entire mother board and power assembly as well.

Replacing the main control board and power board will restore proper function.

hi due to it being lightnig strike their could be that much wrong with it that you might never find the problem.
If you are going to try and repair it then your going to need a multimeter and also get hold of the schematics so you can follow them and for any part numbers you might need.
The chances are its going to be several blown resistors because the lightning strike causing power surge so i would start looking around the board where the power lead goes into the board this would be a good place to start testing

When and How Should a Surge Protector Be Used on a Fixed Switch?


Common Causes of Lightning Strikes
  • Outdoor network cables or power cables are routed overhead.
  • A switch is deployed outdoors but is not properly grounded.

Damages of Lightning Strikes
  • If power cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn the power supplies.
  • If network cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn interfaces of the switch.
When a switch undergoes lightning strikes, overvoltage is induced by lightning on network cables and transmitted to interior of the chassis. The surge protection measures, such as lightning rod and chassis grounding cannot prevent the damage. Therefore, surge protectors or surge protection circuits are recommended.

Surge Protector Use Precautions Take the following precautions to protect a switch from lightning:
  • Ensure that the ground cable is connected to a ground bar or a ground point on the cabinet.
  • Avoid routing cables overhead in an outdoor environment. Bury cables underground or route them in steel tubes.
  • To protect network interfaces against lightning, use 8-line surge protectors (or Huawei certified 4-line surge protectors).
  • When installing a network interface surge protector, connect the IN end to terminals and the OUT end to network interfaces of the switch.
If a fixed switch is installed in a network box, follow these instructions:
  • Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
  • The maximum length of a ground cable cannot exceed 40 cm, and a length of smaller than 15 cm is recommended.
  • If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more than 300 m) to the network box, it is recommended that you install a power supply surge protector in the network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long

Claim on your insurance. lightning strikes reach voltages higher than a PCB (printed Circuit Board ) can handle. most of the chips inside will probably be bits of burnt glass now.

Sta-rite dura glas pool pump not getting power after lightning


You need to start checking for power from the breakers to the timer to the sw to the back of the motor. With a lightning strike it could have fried any one of these itims or all or a wire first shut your breaker to the pump off and turn back on to be sure it resets. then go down the line checking the power for 220 all the way through if your not comfortable with elect. call an expert. But where your power stops is where your problem is, and rember threr can be more than one.
