There is a small resister embedded into the honeycomb filter.  This resistor is susceptible to moisture and may fail.  This may very well be due to cleaning that portion of the filter with water.  In very few cases this failure has caused smoke or fire inside of the air handler.  From the information we have received this has occurred in 7 filters out of over 100,000 sold.  A damage was contained within the air handler itself.

The recall only covers filters for air handlers.  Upgrade kits are not affected and are not covered under the recall.  Currently there is a solution to the issue.  Trane is waiting for final approval to release the upgraded cells.  Your installing dealer will replace the parts at no cost to you once they have the parts available. 

If you have a Clean Effects, Trane is recommending you turn it off to avoid the possibility of this failure.  To turn the filter off, push and hold the power button for approximately 3 seconds until the LED panel (lights) illuminate.  Release the power button.  The LED panel will remain lit until the voltage has discharged.  This requires approximately 15 seconds.  Turning off the filter will not affect the operation of your air conditioning system.  While the filter will not be as efficient as with the power on, it will continue to filter the air with it's pre-filter.

If you have any questions you should contact your installing dealer.
 
Here is a list of affected filters.  The first 4 digits of the serial number must be less then 7222.
