Question about Honeywell Enviracaire Elite F300E-1019 Air Purifier

3 Answers

Clicking noise I have two Honeywell Envirocaire Elite, f300e. One of them has started to click continuously when it is powered. This occured after I cleaned the filters. I had heard it do this before when the filters were still a little wet. It has not stopped in weeks however. All the ionizing wires appear to be intact. What is the problem? What do I do? Thank you Bob Watson Reno, NV herophilos@sbcglobal.net

I had the same problem.

We could put one cell in and it worked with out clicking. Putting the second one in solo however, it was clicking.

I looked closely at the second cell and discovered that two of the vanes on the side with the wires were bent at about 20 degrees off. Adjusting this and reinserting reduced the clicking but not completely. I pulled the cell and focused on the same two vanes and discover one was also bent in, gently pulled it back and no more clicking!

My wife had cleaned the filters and my 6 yr old and 4 year old had to help. I wonder how they got bent?!

We have had the cleaner for about 6 yrs and no problems until this last cleaning.

Be very careful in adjusting the cells. Aluminum does not like being bent and weakens each time it is moved, like pulling a tab off a beer can (of course the cells are made from much thicker and higher grade aluminum)!

Even after making sure the fins were spaced apart, I still had clicking from the same damaged fin. I noticed it had some buildup on the fin from where it was arcing. I put a small piece or duct tape on the bad spot and it seems to have fixed it. I am going to monitor the cleaner all day to make sure it is functioning properly.

Cliking noise on power up will come from 1 place: vents! check all blades, if there is a wire hanging there check if the blades dont touch thier surroundings if so make a space...(by all means) keep in mind there are more then 1 vent inside good luck windman

Honeywell Enviracaire Elite 300 problem. Light is not on. Seems like no power to system. No snapping or noises. No obvious bent fins or broken wires


If it was wired to the return air it will have a flag switch to let it know the blower is on, sometimes the flag comes off and it wont operate, sometimes it is wired directly to the computer board on terminals EAC that stands for electronic air cleaner and the board turns the air cleaner on when the blower is running, if you have a meter you can check voltage in both places to see which one is the problem. let me know. thanks wally

Honeywell F300E not cleaning air.


A newly installed system should still be under the contractor's labor warranty. Call them and ask them to come out to check on the unit and explain what you wrote above. This should cost you nothing and is the best way to get to the bottom of the problem.

F50E New Power Supply Arcing


check the fins on both cells for even spacing on the fins. If the fins are bent a little, this will cause your arcing.

Pull both cells out and reinsert them one at a time. Keep the cell all the way to the front or all the way to the back so it makes contact with the power supply.

The cell that has bent fins will continue arcing. Good luck.
