SOURCE: Cleaning the top of the oreck air purifier

what i normally do, is i take off the top of the and remove the filter, the metal dust catcher, and the back filter... i was the 2 filters and rub them down. then with the metal dust catcher i take a butter knife. wrap it in a clorox wipe (making sure that no metal is exposed to scratch) then i feed it through the metal dust catcher one at a time to clean it. It took me 5 wipes to clean the whole thing. when the wipe comes out black then i rotate it. As for the top of the machine. there are 2 screws that i removed to get to the fan. when they were out i used a can of air (like you would clean a computer with) and blew out the fan... it took care of all noise and it runs just like the day i got it.

SOURCE: Oreck Air Purifier. Need to take it apart to clean the collection

i just used a butter knife wrapped in a Clorox wipe... being careful not to have the metal show so that it will scrape. when the wipe comes out black, rotate the wipe so that it will be able to clean. I used 5 wipes rotating. I could not figure out how to open the thing either so this was my solution.

Can you add a prefilter to an oreck truman cell to grab the larger dust particles and decrease the zapping?a humidifier in the room helps but when the furnace is going it can still be often.

it should have a prefilter already on it. they have a screen looking filter that goes on the front of the cell. If you don't have one you need to get one. You should also have a charcoal filter on the back side of the cell, if not then you'll need to get one of those also, the charcoal is for odors and not for filtering dust. Putting any other type of filter in front of the cell will just be turning this into a filter type cleaner and will be defeating the purpose of the reusable Trueman cell. You may as well just buy a different cleaner if you don't mind buying new filters instead of cleaning the cell. I would recommend cleaning the cell every 2 weeks to keep it working properly. This will also keep it from snapping, if yours is snapping it's already too dirty and needs to be cleaned, if it's snapping right after it's cleaned then you have a plate that is arcing in the Trueman Cell, I have posted a fix for the ProSheild Models to stop the cell plates from arcing.

I have an Oreck XL that is very noisey, even on the silent run position. How can I gegt it fixed?

The problem may be build-up on the blower wheel. When the Truman cell cover is removed, two screws are visible which secure the cover for the blower. remove them and the cover hinges. Keep opening and it will unhook. Use a stiff brush to remove soil from the blower wheel. The unit can be turned upside down over a trash can or better still, outdoors to remove the excess.

Where can I get replacement wires for an oreck truman cell? Seems silly to spend 200 dollars when the only thing wrong is four 29 cent wires does it not?

Here is a link to where you may can find what you need. You will need to have the correct model number (not just XL Tower Air Purifier) , to find your mode.

Why is my Oreck XL is my air purifier arcing?

If it was just clean recently, it's probably picking up dust particles and that's what you hear or see arching, like a bug zapper.And conversely, if it has been cleaned recently, dust particles on the filter are breaking off and getting zapped. In which case, you need to clean the filter.

Collector cell light always comes on

Hi there,

We purchased one of these in April 2009. Same issue appeared with us. Cleaned the cell and the "clean collector cell" still stayed illuminated. Checked the manual and the trouble shooting section stated to hold down the "air revitalizer button" till the "clean collector cell" light blinks three times. After this operation the light went out and all was fine!!!! Hopes this clears your issue!

Cleaning the grid

You clean the cell by soaking it in warm soapy water in the kitchen sink: "
soak the Electronic Collector Cell in warm
water in a kitchen sink or bathtub. Mild dish detergent (powder
or liquid) may be added to the water to help break down the
dirt on the Collector Cell. The Collector Cell should be allowed
to soak for two to three hours."
See the instructions here:
