One of the office building I have been asked to do some work in has two complete sets of Gen II. One I have already rebuilt cause the tenants upstairs let their water heater leak until it burst which poured water into the unit downstair right on top of the slave stat and damper modules!Originally posted by mtnwrench
I cant get into any Gen II systems with my current laptop, xp. Have to keep around an old slow piece of junk with win95 on it to get into them. I dont even bother with the laptop much anymore. You can see everything from the main stat and bypass controller. Good luck on that laptop.
But the West unit will not respond to any changes in setting so the tenants have been held captive for years. The only response I can give the owner is someone locked out the programming which can only be done using a computer, to my knowledge. So for 3 months now I have been attempting to gain access to this system to see what is up.
But I'll just bet, and hope not, that someone along the line put in a password! The owner totally understands what is going on and has commented he has had these types of unnecessary and expensive problems before.
