My cell is flashing a green light in CELL area of the STATUS section. The manual says that it is not generating and to inspect the cell.
My question is; inspect the cell for what? It is very clean and registers that it is 20% used.
What is my next step?
Thanks!

What is the salinity?

What is the date from the sticker on the back of the cell?

What is the water temperature?

Is there a date on the cell?

How old is the cell?

Verify the salinity another way to be sure.

Increase the salinity to about 3,800 to see if that helps.

I believe your manufacturing date is 03-2014. So out of warranty.

To verify, the flow light and salt light are green, but the Cell light is flashing?

I think that it's older than 2014. Probably more than 10 years old.

In any case, I would increase the salinity and verify the salinity by at least two different reliable methods.

Yes, kind of strange.....

I just replace the flow switch with no changes.

Probably a dead cell. Look inside the cell for scale and clean if necessary.

Look for corrosion on the plate edges.

You can possibly get it to work if you're willing to increase the salinity up to about 4,500 ppm.

Verify the salinity two different ways to be sure.
