Customer Question
22kw automoatic standby....

22kw automoatic standby. Ran test this afternoon, sounded OK. Now light on unit shows 1/3 green, 1/3 orange, 1/3 no light. Do I have an immediate issue or can I wait until morning? Ruby Elec, 62711, Jon63263

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

Where is thermostat? What filters? I seem to have no paperwork that addresses those things.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No. If it's OK 8 will call for service tomorrow
