It requires a little technical aptitude, but it works great. I'll never go back to chlorine tabs or granular. I'll post the fix based upon the positive responses.


so whats the fix ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Intex 8110 Chlorine Generator Fix

Postby TXPool » Mon 06 Jul, 2009 00:59

I just encountered a problem with my 8110 and thought others may run into this issue as well. The symptom was, I set the time, wait a few minutes and the Green LED turns on to indicate it is working. Very shortly after the cycle started the display blanks and the unit appears to be dead. Cycling the power switch does not bring the unit back to life. Unplugging it for a number of seconds appears to reset the unit and I can repeat the above sequence of events. The unit is a couple of years old and had been working during this season as well up until yesterday.

I managed to determine what was wrong and it is functioning again. On the circuit board there are two connections that go from the terminal strip to the electrolytic plates. The leads on the terminal strip are quite large and it appears when they originally soldered the terminal strip to the circuit board they did not apply enough heat. Over time the solder connection deteriorated and the connection became very resistive and generated enough heat at the solder joint that it finally failed. I cleaned the terminal strip lead and the corresponding pad on the circuit board and re-soldered the connection. While I was at it I went ahead and re-soldered all of the terminal strip leads.

Intex 8110 Chlorine Generator Fix

Thanks for all your help with the dreaded 91 error. First I tried the VR1 resistor CCW turn and that helped for a couple of hours. Now I have rewired as recommended to bypass the circuit board. When I plug it in there are no lights at all - someone had posted that the green light should still be on after this fix. Can someone confirm that? I'm not sure if mine is working or not after the rewiring. PS. My unit worked ok for a couple of years but this year it's all 91 error.

thanks, Greg

Intex 8110 Chlorine Generator Fix (bypassing wires)

Postby shorty74 » Sun 02 Aug, 2009 17:00

Mine gave me the 91 code first. Than after following instructions on cleaning (which it didnt even need it, was sqeaky clean) it after just 1 week of use. It started giving me the "service" light, and was not working at all. No chlorine bubbles were being generated. Intex said they can send me another one for free. In the meanwhile, I decided to check online for solutions. Some people spoke of rewiring/bypassing wires in the generator, so I opened mine up and tried it. I AM NOT AN ELECTRICIAN!! But I do know to unhook from the wall first. So the cord needs to first be pulled from the wall. What I did was unscrew the red and black wires from their "terminals" (I think thats what its called) coming from that "little black battery" to the "screw" (on the left side, where there are two black wires and one red and one white wire screwed). Dont unscrew anything from the "battery". Then I hooked the red wire together with the white wire (using same screw already with white wire), then I did the same thing with the black wire coming from the "battery" area and hooked it where the other black wired is. They look like this originally from top to bottom (red/from wall to battery) (black/from cell wire)(white/from cell wire)(black/from wall to battery). U also need to rewire the little red/black wire that is attached to the black fan. It needs to be unhooked where the red/black wire has a white squarelike tip (P1). than rehook it to the other square little "outletlike" thing closest to the fan (P6), left of the three blue squares. DO NOT BOTHER TURNING ON THE HOURS FOR THE TIMER, IF IT KEEPS SHUTTING DOWN THEN IT DOESNT WORK ANYWAY. You will need to time it on a manual alarm for the required time for chlorination (SEE: your manual for your pool size chlorination time). If you turn on the timer, then it goes into "service" light mode, than the fan will also shut down, that can cause things to heat up. But if you just let the "88" stay on the machine will stay on along with the fan. Because remember it is now directly hooked to the main wire leading to the GFCI. I will TRY TO POST video on youtube.
TITLE(cut and pase onto youtubes search bar):>>[Intex Saltwater (chlorine) Generator Bypass wires (Fix) for 8110 GENERATORvideo1]AND for the FAN >>[Intex Saltwater (chlorine) Generator Bypass wires (Fix) for FANvideo1]. i just did this today, so who knows it may heat up and blow up tomorrow. So if you like wait for me to post a positive OR negative remark by next week about the results, maybe sooner. Please note I am NOT responsible for YOUR results, if you attempt to do this, use discression and CAUTION. This post doesnt allow for pics, either that or I didnt figure out how to do it.

SORRY im too soft spoken, I thought I was loud enough, but you can at least view the video to see which wires I moved around. Be sure to watch BOTH videos including the one about the fan rewiring, its important that the fan continues to run. Now remember once the machine is on and blinking "88" dont bother with the timer, unless you know for sure it wont go into "service" mode, Because once that light comes on it shuts off the fan, Just leave on the machine after your required hours of use (check with Intex manual).
