Light a blinking, what does it mean?

Consumer question:

Just installed a 5000. When thermostat is in the off position and I set unit to run 30 min/hr., the blue lights on the cleaner flash and the filter indicator bars are animated on the LED control panel.

When on I place the thermostat on heat, and the heat kicks in, the blue lights on the cleaner unit do not flash but the filter indicator on display/control module is animated. Should the blue lights on the filter be flashing?

Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us. The unit is going to light up when it send a signal to the furnace fan to kick on. The 30 min/hour button will give you 30 minutes run time for the based on the total amount of run time in that hour. The run time of the heat call does count toward that 30 minutes and if toward the end of that hour the control has not reached 30 minutes it will kick on the fan to get the remaining minutes. The blue light should flash when ever the furnace does kick on and furnace fan runs. If you have any other questions please contact us at 800-334-6011. Thank you
