My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Inspect the area you had worked in when the vent air filters were replaced and see if any wiring or electrical components were bumped loose or damaged in any way.If a fault is found correct it and see if this resolves the issue here.If this is checked and all found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.
Thanks Pete
