Water Heater filter light GEH50DEEDSRA

I have a GeoSpring-Hybrid Electric water heater. The air filter light and beeper keep coming on every 3 to 4 days after I reset it. The filter is CLEAN, even does it with the filter removed.

Today could not even reset the filter light and beeper, had to turn power off and repower up to cancel filter light.

Where is the air flow sensor for this system? Can I clean that part?

The parts break down does not show one.

Of course it's 13 months old and just out of warranty.

Please explain how this system works.

I can repair the circuit board if you tell me what component is bad.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the water heater. This can be a very complex unit to service. The filter indicator light can be set off by 3 different sensors. When any of these sensors detect a blockage or if the compressor has accumulated a run time of more than 3000 hours. The most common reason for this type of problem to occur is a lack of ambient air. If the water heater is in a tight or closed area, it won't be enough air flow and will cause this problem. Now, if the board failed, there would be no way to determine what part failed unless there was a burnt spot on the board. If any component on the board failed, the board would need to be replaced. The board is not serviceable. Also have any error codes appeared that would help indicate what is causing the problem. I strongly recommend having a technician check and make the necessary repair on this unit. I'm attaching a site you can access, to schedule a tech to come out.

Scott can you tell what will take to reset the filter alarm if the compressor run time is more than 3000 hours?
