    Trane CleanEffects whole house air cleaner:

    Hello, i hope this is the correct spot to post this...

    I just purchased a home (Trane system “heat pump” installed Sept 2009) and I have a cleaneffects air cleaner installed on the Trane air handler. The plug is not inserted into the cleaneffects door and when I plug it in it will not turn on. So I took the service panel off the air handler and the red wire for the cleaneffects is not connected to the low voltage panel - obviously why the cleaneffects won't power on. My question is should I connect the red wire to the red terminal and try it? The filters are clean as a whistle and look like they have never been turned on. I think I would like the air cleaner but want to check before I turn it on as someone before me unhooked it for what ever reason... Risks? Thanks!

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    What system/air handler is it paired with? There were some issues with compatibility on some air handlers where it would throw a fault code and shut it down. There was also an issue with the collection cells on the first generation CE. I would not connect it until I know why it was disconnected. If all the other wires were connected on it there must have been a reason to disable it.

    I'd recommend having it checked by a technician familiar with the Clean Effects air cleaner, and have them verify that it does not have the recalled collection cells.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Agree with Mark. If the system has not been serviced in the last 4 years would be a good time for a cleaning and tune up on the whole system.
