Rainsoft AM32CT-8 Timer Problem

 
 
Reply Sat 21 Mar, 2009 06:48 pm
I bought my rainsoft water softner in 1992. My timer is the mechanical type with the pins you push or pull to set it and has stopped working, I even have to regenerate manually by hand. They said this type of timer is obsolete and want to charge me $800-$1800 to upgrade. Is there parts available? The part no. I need is 49A.

I can refurbish your electromechanical timer.

@H2O MAN,
H20 MAN. I Think I have the same problem. The dials just dont move and it never runs the routine. I checked voltage at the power supply and its right on 24vac. I placed a call with my seller here in New Jersey but after reading this post I am not planning on paying for an upgrade. You say you can refurbish it. Can you give me an idea of how much?

@leeman50,
I believe I have the same type of softener as you but I don't have any of the manuals. The one I have, had problems with the microswitches, which I found replacments for through the grainger catalog #400 page 330 part number 3XG44 $2.73 each & 3XG45 $2.74 each quanity 2 each. I don't have any idea what part number 49A is but if it is one of the switches they are available through grainger for $10 or $12. Does your manual have a wiring diagram for your timer? I could sure use it! Thanks

Larry

@leeman50,
If you depress the tab on the inside upper section after removing the 2 screws for the inside cover the internal mechanism will tip forward and you can see the intermatic number on the back of the timer. If it is a wg190-1 or -2 it has been replaced with the intermatic wg190-15 or 15d. i just bought one online for $33
