I won’t be able to do a call unfortunately but I will still be Here to help. Via text. Another tech may choose to call you.

Usually with pulsing it means the filter is stopped up or there’s a blockage now.

When you clean the filter make sure you are super thorough

It could very well be
In rare cases the motor or control components could be faulty , but 99% of the time this is due to a blockage
