Re: Watermaker motor

Denis Elborn

Hi Bill,

I think that’s what I said happened and whilst I’m not an electrical engineer I understand the basics and will probably be able to fix a simple problem. I am after some guidance about what to check to find the problem.

As you are the only one in the group who has ever answered any query I’ve posted, I look forward to some further input from your extensive knowledge (hopefully!)

Catch up, Den

When the two smaller wires energizes the relay, positive power should pass from one side to the other when the electromagnet closes the circuit. The switch essentially connects the two large wires on the relay. If you don't understand this, seek expert help.

Thanks Bill for replying.

When I switch ‘on’ at the panel the relay clicks in and supplies positive power to the junction box on top of the motor, so I assume it’s OK.

What do you think?

Is the relay working?

Hi all,

The 24v motor Om my Duo D100 has stopped working, still has power going to it and it turns OK but that’s it. The water maker is working fine on the 220v motor.

Any suggestions on how to trace the fault would be appreciated.
