Ic40 fuse blown up

In need of any help! I have an Intellichlor IC40 that is less than one month old. Living in Israel, it's only had about 5 days of running time on it.. I started it and all was good. Suddenly, all the lights on the cell were off. Searched Pentair's site, it suggested the fuse and went from there. Sure enough, the fuse was blown. I replaced it, blew again instantly. 10AMP fuse. I check two things: first, replace fuse with cell unplugged and provide power to see if it blows while cell is unplugged, it did not. Second I connect the pH Controller unit to it and the ph. is working, without the IC40 . I took apart and cleaned the IC40 and re-attached. Hooked it all back up and tried to start it and fuse blew again.

What can I do?

I need to replace the IC40. It has warranty . how can I replace it?
I can send it to LA USA

Thanks,
Royi shemesh

I have the same problem and can't seem to get anyone to follow through on a resolution. Fuse keeps blowing. I am on hold with Pentair right now and it has been a long wait. My system is technically 1 yr old as the cell was replaced under warranty last year for a different reason. Wondering if I should forget about using a salt water system and stick with chlorine tablets. Never had these issues in my old pool.

Just spoke with Pentair and was instructed to do a test. Turn off power, unplug the power source from the ic40, take off the front panel to the power source so that you can see the green electronics board, put in new fuse and turn on power. If the green light (located at bottom right of electronics board) remains on and the fuse doesn't blow, then the problem is the cell. He said 9 our of 10 times it is the cell. Will follow up when I have this resolved.

I have the same issue. Just ordered a power supply and cell, and will try to determine which one is causing this. Assuming the cell, as the power supply LED is green until I plug the IC40 in, blowing the fuse. Has anyone else experienced this or know for sure if there's another fix?

Update to my post. Replaced the cell (IC40), and this fixed the issue. Power supply was fine after all.
