What would cause my Chexit to go into a weak alarm 10 seconds after arming it?

The following could cause the Chexit device shipped prior to 8-24-2015 with solenoid driven to go into weak alarm with solid LED light:

  • Wrong power supply- Chexit device requires  a PS873 or PS914 power supply without any option board.
  • Wrong gauge wire-
    • 0-100 ft  use #14 gauge wire
    • 0-200 ft use #12 gauge wire
  • Wrong fuse in the PS873 power supply, requires 4 Amp slow blow fuse.
  • Defective Chexit module.  Check the voltage between green and yellow wires that connects to the solenoid and make sure there is no voltage measures when Chexit module goes into the arm mode.
