Rainsoft Timer Motor

    My wife can always tell when it's time to add salt to our Rainsoft
    water treatment system. A few years ago it wasn't regenerating and I
    found that the timer motor (Intermatic CW190) wasn't working. I
    replaced it and everything was fine until a week ago when she asked me
    to check the system. It still had salt so I manually started a
    regeneration cycle. The program disk got stuck in the backflush phase
    so I figured the timer motor must have died again. I manually rotated
    it through the entire cycle, and planned to do the same last night but
    found that it was doing fine on its own. So since the motor is not
    dead, I'm wondering what else might be stopping the rotation part way
    through the cycle.

    Any ideas?

    Hello! My name is Scott Harmon I am the director of technical service
    and customer focus for AWTP, LLC – the parent company of RainSoft. We
    are the manufacturer of RainSoft water treatment equipment. I would
    be happy to address your problem. Please feel free to contact me at
    your timer issue is two fold. If the
    timer is not turning the time wheel then the motor may be part the
    issue. Based on your comment that you started it manually and it stuck
    in a backwash it sounds like what is called a bad index lever. If you
    contact me I will have one of my staff walk you though the issue and
    you can decide if it is something you would like to handle or have
    your local dealer address
