Question Trion Electronic Air FIlter indicator light flickering

I have a Trion electronic air filter. I ran the normal water washing process this weekend, and when I turned it back on, the indicator light gives a flicker right after flipping the switch, but after that, nothing.

Does my system require taking out the panels and cleaning? Would that likely help in this case? (I am a bit overdue, but it is 17 F out so not my first plan).

Is there the possibility that it is something that I can fix myself or do I likely need to get a technician to fix it?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

I ran the normal water washing process this weekend,
What is that ?

Did you take the cells out and wash them ?
If yes...... they need to dry out before turning the cleaner power back on.

What I do when I clean my cells...... I put them back in and leave the power off for a day.
By that time they are dry and then turn power back on.

If this is a "wash in place" unit, you may need to remove the cells carefully and check to see if there is anything shorting the cells (dirt, spider, mouse, etc.) Once the cells dry ,which could take a few hours with the fan running turning the switch "on" should yield normal operation. If after drying, the unit is not performing you may need to call for service. If this unit is a slim type that looks like a 6" wide filter, the best way to clean is in a dishwasher set for a short cycle. I clean mine by placing 2 2X4's in each basket and laying the coils horizontally on top of the 2X4 's so the dish prongs do not bend the plates. 1 short cycle and the cells are clean.

Yes, it is a "wash in place" unit. That is the "normal water washing process I was doing.

I will take the cells out and examine and do the cleaning. If it doesn't work after that, I will get help.

Thank you for the assistance!
