Inside of the cell is a flow switch, make sure there was no damage done to it as you were cleaning off the blades, we recommend the acid wash cleaning stated in our manual. A flow switch test can be done with the cell, by taking a rubber band and tie it around the flow switch to keep it engaged, install it back inline, and turn your filter pump aux on, the light should go green at this point. If the light stays red, contact us at 1-800-831-7133 for further assistance and remove the rubber band after the test was done.
