That's OK Scoteddie! appreciate the input!
John... after my last post I went down and the error code PF was off. For the hell of it , I thought I would try to start another cycle at least to get the water pumped. It started right up and I waited well past the time the it had been failing on me and stopping. This time it went through the whole cycle! So John, based on part of your comment ... I may just need to put this Oxgard product you are talking about.
I am a bit confused because earlier I thought you said it was in the front on the top ... the last comment it sounds like it is on the bottom. Anyone have a link to the service repair manual?
John re your question about the water. It was during the Sandy storm here and it was about 2.5 feet of briney tidal water that hit my equipment.
Thanks again all!
