Hello. I just installed this new control panel and my system is now showing zero salt and not generating chlorine. The readings are 0000 and -0000. I have the correct T-cell selected (T-cell 15) and the cell was just replaced. I'm wondering if you have any troubleshooting tips for getting this control board to work properly, or if it might be a bad board. It's an AquaRite Goldline system. The only other setting I have select is AL-0 as well as t15. The system is showing a green light for both Power and Generating - but the chlorine has not increased at all over the past 3 days. No other error lights are active. I also do not hear the 2nd relay "click" after switching from Off to Auto - this 2nd click is which usually starts the process of reading current salt levels. I appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you so much for your help.

It sounds like you told it the cell type, so be sure to also let it know what your salt level is (installing a new salt cell without calibrating it can cause the same problem).  The system wants to be sure that everything is good and safe before it actually turns the cell on.  

Be sure to get an accurate salt reading with something like our Pool Salt Test Strips - NP221 and then follow the instructions at How To Recalibrate the Salt Level on a Hayward Aqua Rite or watch the process here.  Be sure to let us know if it solved the problem!
