A few months ago my IC40 stopped producing chlorine. I cleaned the cell but that did not help I boosted the output from
10% on April 4 (water temp 74*) to
40% on April 22 (water temp 72*) to
70% on May 10 (water temp 78*) to
80% on May 29 (water temp 80*)

besides a few day after May 29 the chlorine level was 0 or close to 0.

Since I thought it was a bad IC40 cell I bought a new IC40 and power center. It was installed on May 17. I am still not producing any chlorine. The salt level has been 3000-3600.

Any thoughts?

You will need to get a full water analysis done in order to make sure your water chemical levels are within range as the cells have requirements with your water chemistry. Please see page 10 in the attachment for details, if all is within, please contact us at 1-800-831-7133 for further assistance.

I tried your link for the proper water perimeters but link is not functional. I wanted to analyze my water before writing you
I have the IC40 for my pool that it never produced chlorine. My pool builder bought it but eventually abandoned the job so the warranty period is long expired. A technician from another pool company hooked it up and connected to my complete Pentair system including the Intellichem, pump and all.
The Intellichem never worked properly but I will deal with it an another post on Intellichem.
The Intellichlor has both green lights on meaning the salt level and the flow are good. However there is no light on in the Sanitizer Output. Pressing the "More" button or the "Less" button did not make any difference. No light comes on at any % level indicator. Now he quotes me $$1305.08 for a new Intellichlor PLUS another $100 to install and set everything up.
If need be I can order from Amazon.com but not sure which one, one cost $999.99 (https://www.amazon.com/Pentair-IntelliChlor-Swimming-Chlorine-Generator/...) and another at $579.99 (https://www.amazon.com/Pentair-520555-IntelliChlor-Chlorine-Generator/dp...) both are for the Pantair 520555.
What should I do? Please advise!
