My new Apex Controller (whatever the full size one is) arrived so of course i had to break it out and start configuring it (tank is not yet up and running). So after setting up everything else i broke out the 6105 i have from my last tank and hooked it up using the proper cable from Neptune Systems. When the cable was plugged in the 6105 would decrease flow but that is it. I tried to turn it off and got no response. I even turned all of the outputs and it still kept running. I thought the Apex was broken so I pulled out a 12 year old 6000 and hooked that up to the same connection that the 6105 was hooked up to. The 6000 worked flawlessly i could pulse it turn it on and off, etc.I had full control over the 6000 including the feeding control. I then took out a 7095 controller i have and plugged just the 6105 into it. The controller did not light up and the pump stayed at full power. Next i plugged both the 6105 and 6000 into the 7095 and the controller came to life and both the 6105 and 6000 responded to the controller. I even went one step further pulling out a 7096 controller out and repeating the process with the same exact results. I am not sure what is wrong with my 6105 at this point, any help/advise would be awesome.:headwallblue:
thanks

I notice your location and I hope you are safe, I am sorry I missed both of your posts. I just came back from MACNA and drove around Houston and even 90 miles north their is substantial devastation. I might try another cable first, it is possible it is the cable, it is possible it is the end connector which could be replaced, it is also possible it is an issue with the cable to the end connector or the motor and then the motor would need to be replaced. I assume this is an older 6105 without the 7090 controller built in? If it has the 7090 it could just need a calibration and the right settings.

yes i was one of the lucky ones and had no water in the house. I had power, internet and tv the whole time. The 6105 is probably 6 years old. I ended up purchasing 2 6055's for the new tank.

You are welcome to send in the 6105, even worst case a repair is not likely to be more than half of what it originally cost and that would be with major components like the motor replaced.
