I had a couple of problems with my AC3 last night. I noticed issues 1 and 2 during a water change. Item #3 while I was watching TV last night.

1. Web interface had stopped working. It was working before I left for my business trip this week. I would get connection timed out errors. So I cut power to the unit for 10 seconds and let it reset its self. The self check came back ok after restarting.

2. I will shut off the return pump and skimmer during water changes with the AC web interface (The controller is upstairs and sump is in the basement. I use my lap top to control everything while I'm in the basement) . The system shut off both devices, but would not turn them back on. I killed power to the second DC8 in my basement that controls the sump with no luck. I killed power to the AC3, DC8 #1 and #2 to reset the entire system. After about a minute I was able to establish control of the devices again through the web interface.

3. It is turning the lights on again after they have gone off. The lights are set to go off at 10pm when I normally go to bed. They came back on at ~10:08 for 4 minutes and went back off again. They then came on again at ~11:08 for 4 minutes. I killed the switches on the lights and went to bed.

I did try the self test again before I went to bed and it did pass per the diagnostic.

Any help with these issues would be greatly appreciated!!
