View Full Version : Odd problem with Grinch or SSr's

11-27-2008, 02:52 AM
Using the Grinch, Ren-C, Ren-T and Sean's SSr's. Last year I had one channel that was always on when there was power to the system, no matter if Vixen was on or not,. No matter I had programmed for it in the sequence, it was always on.

It was one channel, and I didn't want to bother with it. Now I finally have the whole system running again. That channel, still stuck on. I assumed there was something wrong with the SSR board. So I switched the board out with another. Now that channel won't turn on. Ok switched it out with yet another, still won't turn on. And then another still won't turn on. Put the original board back in, won't turn off.

Any ideas?

Sounds like you toasted the triac on the board that stays on ( and thats why it stays on ) , and the reason that the others ( other SSR boards ) won't come on , is more than likely due to whatever happened to fry the triac on the original board that won't shut off .
