Lights not working

Recommended Posts

I have a hobby prestige 650 wfu, all the 230v is working but i cant get the lights or pump to work.

I tried a new transformer and sent the light key pad and light control circuit board to applegate electronics, both ghese came back with no fault found, no breaks in any wires either, can anyone help.

A few minutes with a multimeter would narrow the search dramatically, without that there are so many possibilities.

 

Is 230V getting to the transformer?

Is 12V coming out?

Is there earth continuity.

Is 12v coming out of the fuse box?

Hi,

There is 230v going to the transformer,and a 230 going to the light circuit board + 2  12v connections comming from the transformer to the light circuit board.

But no power going back out to the lights or pump from the board. we checked the earth its ok.

How do i test for 12v with a multimeter.

If you don't know how to test for 12v with the meter how have you tested for 230v?

I've always recommended this book for multimeter virgins.

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Getting-Most-Your-Multimeter-BP/dp/0859341844

 

£3.99 and worth every penny.

 

It was one of my best selling books when I ran a store for Maplin
