Tip & How-To about Brookstone Pure-Ion UV Air Purifier
We had a problem with ours, it kept telling us the filter needed cleaning, though it had just been done and was actually fine. It would sound a high pitched alarm and "freak out" on us.
We found using a shop vac and cleaning it out all (while unplugged, of course) inside where there are intakes and general insides was greatly helpful. It was making a crackling noise as well, quite often.
We have asthma and allergies in the household and rely on this to help our family, it's a wonderful thing to own, we love it.
But, this one problem had us stumped. Do try to use a powerful vacuum and really get inside. We have cats and apparently cat hair as well as household dust was clogging it. You obviously need to do more than clean the filters, themselves, from time to time.
