Read the manuals
carefully - no details on fuse #2, contacted original installer waiting reply, Google
searched this forum, contacted Spectra and waiting for reply, now posting
Four days ago, I had fuse #2 blow on the control board of the Spectra 400 within 15 seconds of start-up after running w/o issue for the first 330 hours for the last 4 months.
I thought perhaps I started the water
maker too quickly ( < 2 minutes) after starting the generator
on low house batteries
(11.8v). Replaced the fuse, installed brand new pre-filters, and started the water
maker when the house batteries
were at full 13.3v. Again fuse #2 blew immediately.
Then I checked the sea-strainer (quite dirty) as we are in Prickly Bay, Gernada and it is pretty green here. Replaced the fuse, started up and it blew immediately again.
Does anyone have experience with this fuse #2? Any ideas of my next steps?
I am worried about going 4 days now without a flush. What risks would I be taking running manually and then doing a flush?
Thank you in advance,
