Series165 Automatic Transfer Switch with faulty controller

I have a Series 165 Automatic Transfer Switch (with Group 3 Digital Controller, rated 240 VAC), which seems to have a faulty controller. The lights on the control panel will come on for only about 10 seconds after power is applied, then they all go off and stay off. The controller sends a signal to the generator to start and to continue to run whether utility power is available or not, and the controller will never activate the transfer switch solenoid, so generator power is never switched to the load. Do I need to consider replacing the controller (electronic circuitry), or is there something else that can be done?

You have a faulty component in the controls somewhere. Sometimes you can find it by unhooking things, then try powering up until it stays on. Then you isolate it down by gradually hooking things back up until your problem comes back.

Circuit board


The ASCO 165 does not switch the home onto the generator during testing / exercise. Unless you manually press the test buttona nd hold. If the power goes and the generator starts, look at the two LED's on front and make sure the generator LED is lit, if it is then the transfer switch is accepting the generator power quality and should switch, if it does not, with everything off generator etc, kill the main breaker feeding the ATS, if the generator starts and it still does not switch you have a board, or position of siwtch micro switch, or rectifier problem in the ASCO. Let me know if you need a manual or you kind find easily on the net, ascopower.com

Asco transfer switch does not shut down the generator after utility power is restored and the cool down period has been completed.


Same problem here with the ASCO 165, after a couple of fierce lightning strikes yesterday that did over $10k damage to my neighbor's electronics, and also took out my garage door opener.

I'm pretty confident the control board is the problem, but I don't plan to try to replace components. Will probably opt for a new control board from ASCO, or another source, assuming they are still available.
