Re: Water Softener Stopped Working

said by jack b:

You're saying the large knob won't turn manually even with the red button (small gear) pushed all the way in?

Yep, the whole thing is seized.

said by Jack_in_VA:

Yes It's possible to replace the control/valve assembly. How old is the unit? If it has any age on it replacing the entire unit with a newer design might be the way to go.

I think it's around 15 years old but it has had the beads replaced.

That looks like an old Fleck (now Pentair Water) 5600 control valve. They still make it and make parts for it, so it's quite possible it can be repaired. I'd recommend having a local Softener dealer come out and take a look.
