Salinity. Chlorine generators need salt to produce chlorine and can't do so if the amount of salt in the water is too low.

What temperature does a Salt Cell stop working?

The salt cell generators are made to work when pool water temperatures are above 60 degrees. In pool water temperatures that are 60 degrees or below, the salt generators simply shut down and by design do not allow the salt cell to ionize (breakdown) the salt and convert it to chlorine.
