Is what it drains into bone dry or wet?
Is power actually coming into the water softener? Check to see if there's a GFCI outlet that the softener's little AC transformer is plugged into. Perhaps it tripped.
Can you see the digital timer? No clock, no power.
Is the time correct? If not, power loss and backwash time may be way off.
Has the time for backwash been deleted?
I'm a firm believer in leaving the toolbox closed until the obvious stuff gets ruled out.
osmonics autotrol 440i
1=its not in bypass mode
2=backwash line is not clogged
3=goes down hill into woods, too dark to look now but i just blew through line and it seems fine.
4=has power, clock is running with new gears i just installed 2 weeks ago (worked fine after new gears for a while)
5=no digital timer, just a dial.
when the clock/gears will move the camshaft to backwash then nothing happens?
i have not taken apart the head unit yet, i dont have a diagram.
i can fix most anything but if i take apart without diagram i just may have a anchor. i seen inside one with a bunch of valves but thats all i know.
