Step 1.
Aeration Operation Service Cycle
In the service cycle, raw water enters the inlet port of the aeration tank and is directed through the
inlet diffuser. The oxidation process begins when the water passes through the inlet diffuser and
cascades through a head of air. This air/ water contact oxidizes the iron, manganese, hydrogen
sulfide in the water. The water is directed toward the bottom of the tank and travels through the
pick-up tube. It then passes through the outlet of the aeration tank to the inlet of the filter tank.
Timer
Filter Tank Operation Service Cycle
Raw water enters the filter tank through the inlet port of the filter control valve. Upon system
demand for filtered water, water is directed to the top of the tank and flows downward through the
multimedia filter bed toward the lower distributor. Oxidized iron particles are trapped by the filter
bed as the water passes through. Filtered water enters the lower distributor and travels up the
distributor tube to the outlet port on the filter valve.
Step 2.
Aeration Operation Air Recharge Cycle
When energized, the air pump sends air through the solenoid valve into one end of the shuttle
valve. Once air pressure in the shuttle valve is greater than the water supply pressure at the
other end of the shuttle valve, the piston shifts to the open position. In the open position, the
bleed-off port discharges excess water and old air to the drain port through a flow restrictor.
Simultaneously, the air inlet port opens to provide a direct connection between the air pump and
the top of the aeration tank. The air pump runs for a preset period of time recharging the head of
air in the aeration tank.
Air Recharge Shut Off
The timer turns power off to the air pump and the solenoid valve at the end of the recharge cycle.
The solenoid valve then closes the port between the air pump and the shuttle valve. The port
between the shuttle valve and the atmosphere opens and releases air pressure. This allows water
pressure to shift the piston to the closed position. With the piston in the closed position, the air
recharge inlet port is closed and direct communication between the bleed off tube and the drain
port is also closed.

Timer Operation
A timer controls the air recharge cycle and how frequently it occurs. The timer simultaneously energizes the air pump and the
solenoid valve. After a preset amount of time, the timer shuts off the air pump and de-energizes the solenoid valve.
Solenoid Valve Operation
The solenoid valve is a three-way valve having ports that connect to the air pump, shuttle valve and the atmosphere. In the service
cycle, the solenoid valve is de-energized and closes the port to the air pump, providing a positive shut-off to the pump. This
prevents water from backing up into the air pump and damaging the pump. In the air recharge cycle, the solenoid valve closes the
port to the atmosphere and opens the port from the air pump.
Shuttle Valve Operation
In the service position, water pressure holds the shuttle valve piston in the closed position, trapping the airhead in the aeration tank
and closes the air recharge inlet port and drain port. During air recharge cycle, air pressure is greater than the water pressure and
forces the shuttle valve piston in the open piston. The shuttle valve has an internal pressure relief valve that will relieve pressure
(greater than 100 psi) that may build up in the aeration tank. This precautionary function protects components from failure due to
excessive pressure.
Step 3.
Filter Tank Operation - Backwash Cycle
Reversing the flow of water through the filter bed and backwashing dirty water to the drain cleans the filter bed. Raw water enters
the filter control valve through the inlet port and is directed down the distributor tube and out the lower distributor at the bottom of
the tank, flowing upward through the multimedia filter bed toward the top of the tank into the control valve. Water is then directed
through a specific flow restrictor and out the drain port to be discharged to drain.
Step 4.
Filter Tank Operation - Rinse Cycle
The rinse cycle packs the clean filter bed. Raw water enters the control valve through the inlet port and is directed downward
through the filter bed into the bottom distributor, up the distributor tube into the control valve. Water is then directed through a
specific flow restrictor and out the drain port to be discharged to drain.
Operation Of Aeration Pump
The Iron-Cleer system introduces air into the aeration tank and bleeds off the old head of air automatically. The exchange of the air
into the aeration tank is controlled independently of the recharge frequency of the filter media tank, allowing the air to be exchanged
on a more frequent basis. During an air exchange cycle, the air compressor pumps fresh air into the aeration tank and the air
eliminator solenoid exhausts the old air.
Advantages Over Other Systems
1. No chemicals or salt.
2. No air injectors, venturis, or micronizers.
3. No floats to regulate air volume in aeration tank which “foul” from iron.
4. Two-tank system consisting of a pressurized aeration tank and multi-media depth filter.
5. 110V aeration pump to recharge aeration tank.
6. Can be used on shared wells, municipal water supplies or with buried pressure tanks without additional equipment.
7. Better filtration results.
Preparation
Operating Conditions
The concentration limits listed below reflect the maximum individual limit that each contaminant was tested for separately without
any interference of other contaminants in the influent water.
In reality, however, we know that these contaminants may be present in combination which may limit the filter’s ability to remove
these contaminants in higher concentrations. In some cases, individual sellers of this equipment have had success removing higher
concentrations of contaminants - iron, for example - above the limitations we have listed. If you are considering the installation of
this system for the reduction/removal of iron, manganese and/or hydrogen sulfide beyond the printed operating conditions below,
we recommend that you consult the manufacturer for proper application. Installation of this system under these circumstances may
void part(s) and/or all of the system warranty.
pH — The pH level of the influent water must be 7.0 - 8.5. A pH level of 7.0 - 8.5 is optimal for iron reduction and a pH level of 6.5
- 7.5 is optimal for hydrogen sulfide reduction.
Iron — This system is rated for a maximum of 10 ppm of ferrous (clear water) and/or ferric (red water) iron. Consult the factory if
iron bacteria is present.
Hydrogen Sulfide — Often referred to as rotten egg odor, hydrogen sulfide will be reduced significantly on water supplies
containing less than 5 ppm. Consult the manufacturer if hydrogen sulfide concentrations is greater than 5 ppm.
Organic Matter (Tannins) — The presence of organic matter such as tannins will prevent the oxidation process of converting the
dissolved element, such as iron or manganese, to a non-soluble precipitate or solid substance, allowing it to be filtered out. The
Iron-Cleer® is not designed to remove organic bound iron.

Culligan® Iron-Cleer® Plus Water Filters
Pre-Installation Check List
___ Water Pressure: A minimum of 20 psi at a predetermined flow rate is required to backwash the filter properly, with a maximum
of 60 psi to be used. If pressure exceeds 60 psi a pressure reducing valve must be installed ahead of the Iron-Cleer® System.
___ Actual Influent Flow Rate: (Water, available from well pump, service inlet, etc.) The actual pumping rate must exceed
the backwash rate (drain flow) for the model of filter selected at a minimum of 20 psi. See actual backwash rates in the
Specifications section.
___ Electrical Requirements for Filter Control: A continuous 110 volts is required to cycle the controls and aeration pump. Make
certain the electrical supply is always on and cannot be turned off with another switch. The system and installation must
comply with all state and local laws and regulations.
___ Existing Plumbing: The condition of the existing plumbing should be free from lime and iron build-up. Piping that is heavily
built-up with lime and/or iron should be replaced.
___ Equipment Location: See Figure 1.
___ Location of Aeration and Filter Tank: See Figure 1. These two tanks should be installed after the pressure tank and as
close to each other as practical. If you want to filter outside hosebibs, be sure the filter system is properly sized to handle the
flow rates required for extended periods of time, in addition to the normal household demand.
Note: Most codes require an anti-syphon device or air-gap. Observe all local plumbing codes and drain restrictions. The
system and installation must comply with all state and local laws and regulations.
For installations in Massachusetts, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts plumbing code 248 CMR shall be adhered
to. Consult with your licensed plumber for installation of this system.
___ Drain Line: All drain lines must be a minimum of 1/2” or equal to the size of the drain line connection at the control valve or
larger. Avoid overhead drain lines when possible. If used, overhead drain lines are not to exceed a height of five feet above
the control valve and should be no more than fifty feet in length.
___ Pressure Relief Valve: A pressure relief valve is installed in aeration tank assembly and it is recommended that a separate
drain line be extended toward the floor or to a drain receptacle.
___ Temperature: Do not install the unit where it might freeze, or next to a water heater or furnace or in direct sunlight. Outdoor
installation is not recommended and voids the warranty. If installing in an outside location, you must take the steps necessary
to assure the filter, installation plumbing, wiring, etc. are as well protected from the elements (sunlight, rain, wind, heat, cold),
contamination, vandalism, etc. as when installed indoors.
___ Check Valve: On applications where there is a non-filtered demand for water such as joint wells (where the filter system is only
installed in one of two or more homes), outside hosebibs, farms with outbuildings, yard hydrants, etc. a spring loaded check
valve is provided and must be installed ahead of the aeration tank. See Figure 7. It is recommended to install the check valve
in a vertical up-flow position.
___ By-Pass Valves: Two bypass valves are provided with the filter system. One bypass valve is used for the control valve and
the other bypass valve is used for the aeration tank.
___ Filtered Water: Normally, filtered water is furnished to all household lines; however, outside faucets are typically left on raw
water. If filtered water is provided to outside faucets, the filter system must be sized accordingly.
___ Treated Water: The filter system should be installed after the pressure tank and before the water softener and water heater.
___ Electrical Facilities: A ten(10) foot cord and wall mount plug-in transformer are provided with the filter control. A six(6) foot
power cord is provided with the compressor. The customer should provide a receptacle, preferably one not controlled by a
switch that can be turned off accidentally. Observe local electrical codes.
Note: The filter control valve works on 24v - 60Hz electrical power only. Be sure to use the included transformer. Be sure
the electrical outlet and transformer are in an inside location to protect from moisture. Properly ground to conform with all
governing codes and ordinances.
Preparation
Installation
Placement
Refer to figure 1.
•
Set the media tank on a solid, level surface near water, drain and electrical facilities.
•
Set the aeration tank on a flat, smooth, solid structure as near the media tank as possible.
Filter Tank Filling
It is possible to fill the tank in the plant. If filled at the plant, the tank must remain upright to prevent disturbing the layers. However,
because of its weight and handling difficulty, it is advisable to perform this on-site. Proceed as follows:
1. Place the distributor tube in the Filter Tank.
2. Use a cork or some other appropriate plug and place it into the distributor tube. This will prevent media from entering the
distributor during filling.
3. Place a funnel in the tank opening and pour several gallons of water into the tank.
4. First pour the Cullsan® material into the tank. The media should be leveled before adding each layer of media. Then pour the
G-50 into the tank. Then pour the bag of birm media. When filled the tank should be about two-thirds full.
5. Fill the tank nearly to the top with water. This will allow the media to become soaked while completing the rest of the
installation.
6. Screw the inlet strainer into the tank.
Mount The Control Valve
See figure 2 for a visual on mounting the control valve to the tank.
•
Assemble the o-rings, located in the parts pack, to the tank adapter.
•
The valve adapter o-ring sits on the first step on the adapter. See figure 3.
Note: Do not push the top o-ring down to the flange surface on the
adapter.
Note: The larger of the two o-rings in the parts part goes between the
adapter and the valve, do not stretch the smaller o-ring onto the top of
the tank adapter.
•
Lubricate only the top o-ring on the tank adapter, and the outlet manifold
o-ring with silicone lubricant.
•
Screw the adapter into the tank until the adapter bottoms out on the tank
flange.

Drain Elbow
Figure 4
Take the time to make a clean, professional looking installation. Use
flux and solder sparingly when making sweat connections, and avoid
excessive use of pipe compound. When using galvanized pipe, clean out excess cutting oil and metal chips before assembly.
Foreign objects, if allowed to enter the control valve, can cause operating problems.
Once the plumbing connections have been made to the Cul-Flo-Valv® Bypass, make certain the interior of the valve is clean
and free of debris, lubricate the valve stem o-rings with silicone lubricant, reinsert the stem, and replace the red or blue knob.
Set the Cul-Flo-Valv Bypass in the bypass position by pushing the red knob completely inward. The main water supply line may
then be reopened so that hard water will be available to the household throughout the remainder of the installation process.
Warning! DO NOT remove the Cul-Flo-Valv® stem while the unit is under pressure!
Caution! Close the inlet supply line and relieve system pressure before cutting into the plumbing! Flooding could
result!
Bypass Valve Installation
Assembly Pin
The bypass valve connects directly to the control valve with a pair
of couplings and two assembly pins (Figure 5). Lubricate all o-rings
on the couplings with silicone lubricant.
On Soft-Minder® meter controls, the meter replaces the coupling on
the outlet side of the control. The meter body fits in the same space
as the coupling between the control valve and the bypass. Make
sure that the arrow on the flow meter is pointing in the direction of
flow (Figure 5).

water lines and these lines are cut during installation of the bypass
valve, an approved grounding strap must be used between the
Figure 5
two lines that have been cut in order to maintain continuity. The
length of the grounding strap will depend upon the number of units being installed. In all cases where metal pipe was originally
used and is later interrupted by the bypass valve to maintain proper metallic pipe bonding, an approved ground clamp c/w not
less than #6 copper conductor must be used for continuity. Check your local electrical code for the correct clamp and cable size.
Installation
To bypass, turn the blue knob clockwise (see directional arrow on end of knob) until the knob stops as shown. DO NOT
OVERTIGHTEN! (Figure 6a).
To return to service, turn the blue knob counter-clockwise (see directional arrow on the end of knob) until the knob stops as shown.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! (Figure 6b)

Settings
Your Culligan® Iron-Cleer® Plus Water Filter is designed to perform efficiently on a wide range of water supplies. Before the unit
can be recharged and put into service, several settings must be made.
Backwash Step
Backwash expands and loosens the media bed, and flushes away accumulated particulate matter. The backwash interval is preset
at the factory for 10 minutes, which is adequate for most water supplies. It is recommended that backwash last just long enough so
that the effluent from the drain line is clear. Backwash too long and water is wasted, not long enough and the tank becomes fouled
with sediment. Refer to the Programming section to increase or decrease the backwash interval.
Pause Step
The Culligan® Iron-Cleer® Plus Water Filter shares its timer with other water conditioning products which would use this period for
the eduction and rinsing of salt, or other regenerant chemical. The pause step duration is 1 minute.
Rapid Rinse Step
Rapid rinse settles and compacts the media after backwashing and flushes any residual particulate matter from the bottom of the
filter bed before returning the filter to service. Rapid rinse is set at the factory at 10 minutes. It may be extended, if desired. Refer to
the Programming section to increase or decrease the rapid rinse interval.
Backwash Frequency – Iron Applications
0.3 - 3.0 ppm Iron - Every 3rd Day
3.0 - 6.0 ppm Iron - Every Other Day
6.0 - 10.0 ppm Iron - Every Day
10+ ppm Iron - Consult Factory
Air Recharge Frequency
Note: Settings based on average pressure (50psi) and less than 500 gallons daily use.
Note: The iron level plus 2 times the hydrogen sulfide level should not exceed 10 ppm.

Switch Definitions
The circuit board is shipped with all DIPswitches in the off position. Prior to programming the controller some DIPswitches may
need to be moved to the ON position. Because each switch serves a specific purpose, please review the following information,
moving the required switches to an ON position as necessary for each controller in the system. The definitions and purpose are as
follows:

text Information Function Timeout
If no key activity occurs for a period of 600 seconds (10 minutes) while in information functions mode, the mode will time out and
return to the time of day display. An exception is that the flow rate and % capacity remaining will not time out but will remain
displayed until a key is pressed. Pressing the “Information” key after the last standard information display will return the unit back to
the time display.
Manual Control Cycling
The control can be manually cycled through a regeneration to troubleshoot the control or verify that the set-up is complete. When
a control is manually cycled back to the service position, the statistical counters of capacity remaining, days since last regeneration,
last slow rinse time and the number of regenerations in the last 14 days and the life of the unit are not to be reset or updated. If
the control is allowed to time out from the last position back to service (Home), the applicable statistical counters are to be reset or
updated. A manual cycling of the control can be accomplished by following the steps as outlined below.
1. While in the service mode, press the “Information” key.
2. Press the “Up” key to display the current motor position.
3. Press and hold the “Regen” key for 3 seconds until the regeneration is started. Once regeneration is active, the “Regen” key
will be ignored until the control returns to the service or “home” position.
4. The REGEN icon will flash and the motor will move the control to Backwash position.
5. Press the “Up” key to cycle to the next position and remain there until the cycle times out or the control is manually indexed.
6. Continue to press the “Up” key until the control returns to the service (Home) position. In order to step through the cycles
again, repeat at step 3.
Note: If the “Down” key is pressed at any time, the control will move back to the first item in the information menu.
Pressing the “Up” key from the information menu would move the display back to the current diagnostic cycle. The “Up” key
will be ignored once the control returns back to the home position.
Backwash
•
Press and hold the REGEN key for 5 seconds; the control should move to the
BACKWASH position.
•
The cycle time remaining appears at the right of the display.
Brine Rinse
•
Press the “Up” key; the control should move to the BRINE RINSE position.
•
The brine rinse time is determined by the model, tank size and salt dosage (unless dip
switch # 4 is on).
•
The brine rinse time is calculated value.
Fast Rinse/Refill
•
Press the “Up” key.
•
If a 4-cycle control, it will move to the FAST RINSE/REFILL position; the time is
determined by salt dosage.

Culligan® Iron-Cleer® Plus Water Filters
Final Start-Up
Regeneration
There are several conditions that will cause the control to trip a regeneration. The “Regen” enunciator will light when the control
has signaled for a regeneration. The “Regen” enunciator will flash while the control is in regeneration. The following are conditions
that will call for regeneration:
1
When the Soft-Minder® meter has recorded the passage of a predetermined number of gallons.
2
When the Aqua-Sensor® Probe senses the hardness in the Cullex Media.
3
At the preset time, when the number of days without a regeneration is equal to the Timeclock Backup setting.
4
At the preset time, when the “Regen” button is depressed once. “Regen” will light.
5
Immediately, when the “Regen” button is depressed for three seconds. “Regen” will light and blink.
6
Immediately, if power to the unit has been off for more than 3 hours and time of day has been restored.
An override function is to exist to allow for the control
to initiate a delayed regeneration if DIP switch #
6 is set to ‘delay’. To initiate the override function
simultaneously press and hold the “Up” and “Down”
keys for 3 seconds while in the service mode. The
display will show the program of power up as “dELAY”
or IMMEd” with “IMMEd” being the default.
Toggle the setting with the “Up” or “Down” key and save the setting and exit by pressing the “Program” key. If set to delayed, then
after a >3hr power outage the “regen” icon will light and the regeneration will begin when the timer reaches the next programmed
time of regeneration. If set to immediate, the regeneration will begin as soon as the control completes the homing cycle. If DIP
switch 6 is set to “ON”, the unit will begin a regeneration immediately for instances 1 and 2. With DIP switch 6 set to “OFF”, the
regeneration will not begin until the preset regeneration time.
Note: If set to immediate mode as timeclock or timeclock backup, the unit will initiate regeneration at 12:00 AM. In the delay
mode, “REG” indicator will light at Time of Regeneration and regeneration will occur at delayed time.
Note: If set to “Delay”, the unit will NOT do an immediate regeneration when Maxcap is reached.
Caution! The media must be soaked for at least 12 hours before start-up (see preparation). Filling the tank without
presoaking will likely cause media loss!
1. Once all plumbing is finished and with the unit on bypass, flush the plumbing system until water is clear and no foreign material
is detected.
2. Initiate an extra recharge by pressing and holding the “REGEN” button for approximately 3 seconds.
3. Plug in aeration pump. Open the inlet valve on the by-pass to the aeration tank and allow the tank to fill with water and come
up to full line pressure. You do not have to wait for the air recharge cycle (air pump running) to finish before proceeding to the
next step.
4. Slowly open the outlet valve on the by-pass(s) for the aeration tank and filter.
5. Allow the unit to fill slowly until water flows from the drain.
6. When water flows to drain, open the inlet valve fully. Watch the drain discharge for media particles. If media particles appear,
reduce the flow. Increase the flow again when media particles no longer appear in the discharge. When the unit is filled with
water, return the timer to the service position.
7. Start-up is complete!
Caution! If a sudden rush of water enters the filter, some of the media could be thrown up into the control valve.
Warning! Although not normally necessary, should you need to disassemble any part of the control valve
or remove the control from the tank assembly or associated plumbing, depressurize the unit first closing the
main supply valve, then open a convenient faucet down stream from the water conditioner.
Final Start-Up 29
Before Leaving The Installation Site
•
Explain the operation of the filter to the customer. Make sure the customer knows that there will be new
sounds associated with the recharging of the unit.
•
Sign and date the corresponding performance data sheet in the Owners Guide. Leave the Owner’s Guide
with the customer.
•
Attach the appropriate data plate label located in the Parts Pack onto the back of the control. Check the
correct tank size.

Error Codes & Alerts
The Gold control has enhanced error handling. When the control detects an error in the operation of the valve, it will make an
attempt to at least try to find and stay in service position, where it will generate a specific error code depending on the type of
failure as shown in the table below, as well as sound an audible beep.
Alert codes are specific to Aqua-Sensor mode and filter mode only. These do not stop the control from operating; they just alert the
customer to call Culligan. Other regeneration triggers will still be valid.
When an error code is detected, the control will attempt to find and stay in service position and display the appropriate error code.
If the control fails to detect service position, it will eventually stop the motor and display the appropriate error code. The error
code display will have additional information indicating what the program was when the error was first detected. The appropriate
regeneration cycle icon (backwash, brine rinse, fast rinse/refill, or “H” for home) will be lit indicating whether the control was in
that position when the error occurred (icon not flashing), or whether the control was advancing to that cycle (icon flashing). The
“REGEN” icon will indicate whether the control was in a regeneration cycle or not. If the letter “P” is in the display, the error
occurred during a “pre-rinse” cycle. In order to manually clear an error code (after correcting the problem), push and hold the
“Program” key for 10 seconds. After the 10 seconds, the control will clear the error code, beep once, and cycle the valve to service
position. Other methods of manually clearing the error code are powering down the control for 60 seconds or toggling dip#1. While
in error mode, the control will not function. When returning from Error mode, the control shall use the values stored in EEPROM
unless another dip switch was toggled or device program was changed. In these cases, the programmed values would revert back
to the defaults.
The alert codes are cleared. The alert code is ‘Change Media’.
‘Change Media’ is optional. It can only be enabled with the control set in Filter Mode with ‘Life’ option set to ‘Yes’. This alert is
triggered when the total gallons used reaches the media life setpoint. It can be cleared by pressing and holding the ‘Regen’ button
for 10 seconds while at the ‘Life remaining’ display in information menu. After clearing the ‘Change Media’ alert, the total gallons
and total regens information reset back to zero.

Diagnostics
Diagnostic Functions
While in the diagnostic functions mode all keys will be active. The mode is entered by pressing the “Information” key, then the “Up”
key. These functions are used to perform diagnostics on the control during regeneration. The display shows the “Regen” icon solid
(if a regeneration is pending) or flashing (if in regeneration). The display is to show Current Cycle along the bottom (4-cycle valve:
Backwash, Brine Rinse, Fast Rinse/Refill; 5-cycle valve: Backwash, Brine Rinse, Fast Rinse, Refill). The program of the motor
output is to be shown in the 3rd digit from the right. The center bar of the digit will light for the motor being powered. The cycle time
remaining will be displayed in the two rightmost end digits along with the “MINS” icon. When in home position, the two rightmost
digits will alternate displaying “HM” (with “MINS” icon off), and time remaining (with “MINS” icon on) 2 seconds each. If an AquaSensor is connected, the 20-minute stabilization delay time will be displayed here after a regeneration (only if regeneration is
allowed to be completed on its own). If a flow meter is attached, the far left digit will show “F” solid, and flash if the control is getting
a flow signal from the flow meter. If an Aqua-Sensor is attached, the second digit from the left will show “A”. The “A” will be solid
for a balanced condition, and flash for an unbalanced condition. A typical display for this function is shown below.
Last Regeneration Trigger
The fourth digit from the left can be “F” (Flow Meter), “A” (Aqua-Sensor®), “t” (time clock) or “M” (Manual). If the “Regen” icon is off,
this letter stands for what triggered the last regeneration. If regen icon is on, this letter stands for what armed it.

Most circuit board problems are caused by outside influences and it is not the board itself. Replacing the board may seem to work
only because the cause hasn’t been reproduced.
Let’s start with what to check when you come upon a circuit board problem:
1. Are those switches aligned too far away to the cam?
There should be a small as possible gap between the switches and the cam so that a “wobbling cam” doesn’t accidentally open
the switch.
2. Has the seal pack been checked for free movement?
Feedback and experience has demonstrated that seal packs that are over-tightened create drag on the motor and delays that
would result in an error code: If the motor never stops (still runs after the desired position is sensed, causing unexpected
switch closures) OR if the motor gets stuck “timing out” and the control never sees any switch action.
3. Are all the wiring terminals tightly connected?
Sometimes a loose or poorly connected wire can give feedback to the board that would result in an error code or default.
4. After checking all of these possibilities you should run the diagnostics (test mode) on the board.
Listed below are some other rare circuit board behaviors and their explanations:
Board skips the service position or only stops for a second in service before advancing to the backwash position
Board has been armed for regeneration. Let the board time out of the last cycle OR reset and reprogram the board.
Motor goes round and round
Only one of two things can happen when this is the case; it can find its desired position or it gives you an error code. So, LET IT
RUN until you find out which will occur.
•
If the motor still runs or there is power to motor after the error code is displayed, then the triac is likely bad – change the
board.
•
If the error code is displayed and the motor is stopped (no power to the motor), check switches, cam and wire harness
– the board got a signal it wasn’t supposed to or a connection failed.
The board repeatedly defaults, resets or gains time
Look at the power supply or source. Most of these issues are caused by the power source, so-called “dirty power” having noise
interference or incorrect voltage. This could be erratic fluctuations caused by other heavy power draws, poor wiring, low voltage
wiring running along high voltage, having active electrical storms that causes “corruption” of the EEPROM. Consider the use of a
surge protector or an uninterruptible power supply after you see this repeatedly.
If you suspect the power source is causing problems, take a voltage reading at the outlet, at the power connection on the board,
and on the motor leads while the motor is running. We are looking for a consistent range of 108-132 volts at the receptacle and 2228 volts on the board. Also, the wall transformer is only used to step down the voltage; it is not used for protection or filtering the
power source.

Service
Warning! Disconnect all electrical power to the unit before servicing. Bypass the unit and relieve system
pressure before attempting repair.
Familiarize yourself with the replacement procedures and component parts thoroughly before attempting any repair.
Circuit Board
To replace the AccuSoft Plus circuit board, refer to the
parts list and proceed as follows
1. Remove the timer cover by unsnapping it from the
back plate.
2. Unhook the circuit board mounting plate by lifting the
top snap and removing from the backplate.
3. Remove all connected wire leads from the board.
Caution! Grip all connections to the circuit
board by the connecting terminals for
assembly and disassembly. Failure to do
so could result in damage to the wire leads
or connecting terminals.
4. Unsnap the circuit board from the mounting plate.
See Figure 15.
Caution! Do not touch any surfaces of the
circuit board. Electrical static discharges
may cause damage to the board. Handle
the AccuSoft circuit board by holding only
the edges of the circuit board. Keep
replacement boards in their special antistatic bags until ready for use. Mishandling
of the circuit board will void the warranty.
5. The new circuit board can be installed by reversing
the steps 1-4 above. When reassembling the
mounting plate to the backplate, it is easiest to hook
the top snap first and then gently push the base in
until it snaps into place.
Figure 15
Caution! The wire connectors must be connected to the circuit board properly. The wires must exit the plug-in
connector opposite of the raised white base of the circuit board connector.
Caution! Extra care should be taken when connecting the 2.5 vac and 24 vac power. Failure to connect properly
will result in damage to the circuit board.

Refer to Figure 16 for assembly and disassembly of the various valve components listed below.
Drive Motor Assembly
1. Remove the drive motor cam switches by removing the one screw holding the switches to the motor
2. Remove the E-ring holding the drive motor cam to the camshaft with a flat tip screwdriver.
3. Lift the cam off the shaft.
4. Remove the screw above the eductor piston assembly.
5. Loosen the two screws holding the yoke support plate and the motor to the control valve.
6. Remove the yoke support plate and yoke by gently pulling them down.
7. Fully remove the two screws holding the motor to the control. The motor will pull away from the control.
Note: Care should be taken to not damage the brine piston if it is not going to be replaced. The brine piston will need to be
twisted slightly in order to remove it from the motor die casting.
This procedure can be followed in the reverse order to reassemble the motor to the control. When reassembling the scotch yoke,
the yoke must slide into the yoke support plate prior to pushing the assembly up into the piston end and follower. Figure 17 shows
proper assembly of the yoke into the support plate.
Note: The seal pack may need to be repositioned in order for the follower to be inserted into the yoke, using the motor and
backplate to push the seal pack fully into the valve is helpful in aligning the yoke. Make sure that the follower is in the follower
slot on the yoke, and that the end of the piston rod is held in the end of the yoke.
Note: When attaching the support plate be certain to push up on the plate until the two mounting screws bottom in the Ushaped channels of the support plate.

Service 41
Seal Pack Assembly
Follow the instructions for the replacing drive motor assembly through step 7, then continue as follows:
1. With the drive motor set aside, firmly pull the seal pack assembly from the valve body.
2. Lightly lubricate the o-rings of the replacement seal pack with silicone grease.
3. Reverse the procedure for reassembly.
Note: Use only silicone grease; petroleum-based lubricants will cause the degradation of the rubber components.
Caution! Do not twist the seal pack upon insertion. This can cause the outer o-rings to pinch, cut, or crimp.
Eductor Piston/Eductor Sleeve Assembly
Follow the instructions for the replacing drive motor assembly through step 7, then continue as follows:
1. With the drive motor set aside, firmly pull the eductor piston & sleeve assembly from the valve body.
2. Lightly lubricate the o-rings of the replacement piston & sleeve assembly with silicone grease.
3. Reverse the procedure for reassembly.
Note: Use only silicone grease; petroleum-based lubricants will cause the degradation of the rubber components.
Note: The eductor piston & sleeve assemblies are unique to the softener, filter, and controls. Refer to the parts list to
ensure that the proper assembly is used.
