I'm having a problem with my GE watersoftener GXSF40H03. In the morning after nights that it recharged, the blue light is blinking and it shows an Error 01 which should mean:
1) Motor inoperative
2) Wiring harness connection to switch
3) Position Switch
The motor is working fine and it's turning the cam. The position switch tests OK.
Here's what I've done:
I disassembled and cleaned the venturi.
I made sure the motor is working and it's turning the cam
I checked that water flow is registering - turbine is turning and sensor is picking it up.
I ran it through the steps manually using the procedure shown in the owner's manual (everything appeared to work.) This procedure is called "Manually Initiated Electronics Diagnostics" in the manual.
I ran it through another manual test called "Manually Advance Recharge Check" and everything checked out OK.
Even so, every time it automatically recharges at night, I find that the blue error light is blinking, an Error 01 is showing, and I can hear a gentle flow of water in the unit.
I would greatly appreciate any advice. The unit is about four years old and I hate to replace it when the problem is probably something simple that I'm just missing.
