A green light indicates that it is generating, but scrolling through the diagnostics it is showing 31.9 volts and 0 amps. Also the instantaneous salt level indicates 0. The average reading is 2800

For AquaRite, move the switch from auto to off and check all of the readings.

Move the switch back to auto and recheck the readings.

Move the switch to off for a minute and then back to auto and recheck the readings.

Report all readings.

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?

The cell will be off for a percentage of the 180 minute cycle depending on the percentage setting.

For example, if the setting is 50%, the cell will be on for 90 minutes and off for 90 minutes.

The cell output reduces to 20% of the actual setting at 60°F.
The cell shuts off when water temperature at 50F and below
LCD displays COLD when water temperature is below 50F

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.
