JANDY AquaLink RS6. I can't get theHot tub/pool to stop running.

On my Jandy, Aqualink RS6, I can't seem to get the hot tub/pool pump to stop running. If you shut the pump off it will stay off for a while and then pop back on again and again. From some research it looks like it might be a relay. I took the outdoor front panel off and observed the black tab on the bottom of the Pool Pump Relay. When the pump is on under "Automatic Mode" and the pool is running the black tab is "IN". When turning the outside buttoms to the "Service Mode" the black tab goes "OUT". Is this a sign of a bad relay?

Could the problem be a "Hot Tub Relay" vs. the "Pool Pump Relay"?

If so, where is the best place to get a replacement relay? What should they cost?

If not a relay, what else could it be?

Much Thanks.

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 boardJANDY AquaLink RS6. I can't get theHot tub/pool to - 2_bing.gif.

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.
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

Jandy Aqualinks not turning on my waterfall or fountain in the pool and 3 out of 4 of my hot tub jets. How do I re-set or repair

Turning off the power and then back on will do a simple reset. Resetting your jandy will probably not fix your issue. The issue seems more like a bad relay or bad pump or the breaker for the pump may be tripped.
