Filter light doesn't turn off after replacing filter.

Earlier today I replaced the filter for my Kenmore 85501 air purifier for the first time. Several hours later, the "Filter" light is still illuminated. How do I make that light turn off?

If you press the function buttons together it will go off. Hold buttons for couple secs.

Have Kenmore 85501 Air Cleaner. Unit will not restart after power failure. Send unit to Sears Service Center but they declined to fix unit. Tried to hold timer and function buttons for 5 seconds and...

Turn the Master ON/ OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. The 12-15 minute timeout should have allowed the unit to reset itself.

The Kenmore air filter will not turn on.

Check the switch and make sure that it is getting power. You can also disconnect the connectors to the swiitch plug the unit back in and touch them together if that works then you know the switch is bad

Kenmore air purifier- model 85500

Power Off the unit then Press and HOLD the Off-Timer and Function buttons at the same time WHILE Powering the unit back On. The Replace Filter light will blink for 5 seconds than go out. Now you can release the the buttons.

Just to make sure everything is working fine power off and on the unit.

On a side note if you are a tight wad like me you may want to just smak the filter layers against the ground a few times to clean them and re-use them / make them last longer. When the replace fileter light comes on too often then it is time to replace the filter.

No worries ;o)
