    hi guys i just got my meyer original yellow square plug touchpad off ebay. I got a bad one i think when i plug it in and turn on the switch undernieth the motor just runs even without pushing up,down,left or right. no valve coils open though. when i push the buttons it works but the motor never shuts off. is that a short in the touchpad. with a test light i get power on the white wire out of the switch without pressing anything to me it seems like a failure in the pad keeping the white energized all the time. all help is greatly awaited thanx guys.

    sound like the board inside is burned. does your old control make the motor run?

    i can get you one for a reasonable price.

    no lead, i recently switched from a switch set to the touchpad i got a harness and the touchpad and the first time i plugged in the pad this happened. I have white to solenoid, red to red, black to black, green to green orange to ground and blue to dash keyed power. I called a meyer sales place and they told me this is a common failure and its in the circuitboard but i took it apart, im a hvac tech so im used to looking at boards and stuff and i saw no burns or signs of them so i dont know if there is a resistor bad or what and before buying another pad i figured id ask you guys the person i got it from on ebay says no refund so im out the $100 i spent on it. What is your cost on one with the 6 pin plug? thanx for responding.

    file a complaint with paypal that the guy sold you a broke unit and leave his @$$ some bad feedback...
    most of the time paypal will do something
