Tip & How-To about Bionaire BAP1500-U Air Purifier


I had a Bionaire BAP1500 which was broken, light up but nothing happens.
i also have a BAP412 and BAP242 which need to have their filters replaced every 3 months - which is very expensive.
I thought i would try the permatech filters from my 1500 in the other 2 purifiers to see if they would fit - they do! and they both work perfectly with the filters installed..no more buying filters for me
So just a tip to say if you have a BAP1500 and its broken, keep the filters because you can use them in a much cheaper model!

Fan does not work..any suggestion how to fix this

after cleaning the filters or changing them it does take a minute for it kick on... Now if it hasn't kicked on yet, you might need to reset it. there should be a reset button on the top, if not what you need to do is shut it off and then unplug for about 5 minutes. somtimes the fan might be dirty or clogged so i would check that as well and make sure nothing is interferring with it moving. if that doesn't work, cause i have used this product before. what you need to do is call the manufacturer let them know your warranty. as long as your under the warranty they should be able to replace the unit for you. they will need the date code/ or the reciept to verify the warranty. If you have the reciept they will ask you to fax it in because it is quicker. once they have that, they will give you a call back to discuss other options if you are still under warranty.

Red Light indicator on

I have a Bionaire tower air filter model BAP1700 that I bought from Costco. The filter check LED came on recently after 5 months of use. After cleaning the Permatech filters, I tried every remedy on this website including following the instructions that say push power button for 2 secs. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a tiny hole on the control panel in front of clean filter LED; I pushed a paper clip pin into that hole, felt a click, held it down and 2 secs later, LED went out. Success!
