OK I did the off check and back to auto check. In the off position it shows 32.1 volts, 0 amps and 0 salt. Back on Auto it reads 26.6 volts and 5.76 amps and 2900 salt.
Should I continue with the off for a minute and back on?
When you turn it off and back on it will start with an "On" cycle. But it takes a moment. There is a click in the relay that starts sending current to the cell. That is when you will start seeing instant salinity numbers and amperage readings.
