    and yes, it would be okay to use it until you can fix it.

    So I have the same problem with channels 1 & 2 stuck on. Unfortunately I also purchased a completed board and the MOC's are even soldered in. I always put sockets in when I build boards. This board has worked great for me for several years. First it was used to drive LED's on a singing Christmas tree at church. But I got tired of spending hours and hours and hours sequencing new songs for the choir every year and switch to a Raspberry Pi running LightshowPi. So now it controls my mini trees which has 100 ct incandescent lights on them. So it isn't working hard at all. Sorry for the long story. Should I just replace the two triacs first? That would be easier out in the yard since all 24 channels would have to be unplugged to take it inside.

    In case you have problems getting the solder out of the hole in the board, here's a trick someone (can't remember who)
    told me about. Take a mechanical pencil with lead about the same size as the hole in the board (around a 7mm I think) and
    hold it on the hole as you heat the solder with the iron. When it gets soft the lead will push through the solder and, after the
    solder cools, you can pull the lead out. The solder won't stick to it and the hole should be open!

    Just a thought, try simply reflowing the solder on the gate resistors for those triacs. Let me know what it does. You can do it from the top side so you dont have to remove the board.

    Nope didnít help. I guess I need to replace the triac then?

    For now I have just unplugged that channel. Itís the green lights on a mini tree.

    Iíll have to go see if I have a spare. I have spare ones for my SSRs not sure about the SS24. It may be a off season repair.
