It's wrong if the solenoids are hot to the touch all the time. You need to touch these solenoids with the button in the store mode. If they are hot don't use that procedure.

There is a way to adjust that alarm. Call AZPete at 602-549-3638 after you have read your HWH service manual. He may be able to help you.

Thanks eveyone.

Fluid level seems to be right. Springs are good. Happens even in cold weather which supports the notion it isn't fluid expansion.

I have no idea if solenoids are hot so I will call about adjustment.

The owners manual says drive in store mode to prevent alarms from going off due to thermal expansion, etc. So I guess I'm lucky because being in store mode does not cause my solenoids to become hot.

Just as everyone has said the shuttle valve is the problem with no return on the rams. So, today I took mine out and the needle valve was stuck! I carefully freed it up and re-installed it and it works better now that it ever has! Note, be careful of the needle valve!!!

After frequent bouts of some jacks not retracting but some retracting with the Store button or the retract buttons I decided to check the shuttle valve. The last time I tried to use Store to retract the jacks none of them would retract, even with the T handles screwed out.

When I pushed the Store button yesterday all four jacks retracted electrically and quickly!

I decided to remove the shuttle valve anyway, the pin at the end was in the retracted position. While wiping down the business end of the valve I picked up a bit of metal flakes on the rag.
After putting everything together all four jacks continue to go down and up electrically as designed. I hope this takes care of this problem that I've been picking away at since August. I'll keep checking.

Water is the catalyst, salt increases conductivity. Moisture allows Galvanic corrosion, boats are the most common source, but it occurs anywhere dissimilar metals touch and moisture is present.
