How do we change filters on a HAP8650 air purifier?


"After replacing the HEPA filters, RESET the Filter Life Monitor by inserting a small object (such as a pin or paper clip) into the hole below the red filter change light marked RESET and holding it down for 2-3 seconds." This came straight out of the Owner's Guide. Hope it helps!

Red light on...


the unit probably needs to be reset. cause what's happening is that it's not recognizing that the filters are clean. there should be a tiny pin hole at the top of the unit. when the unit is on you need to put a small needle in there and hold for about 5 seconds and the unit should reset. if that doesn't work please please let me know and i will see what else we can do.

How to reset air purifier


(from the manual) Turn off the unit. Look just below the last light on the "filter change indicater meter". You'll see a very small hole and the words "reset". Use a sharp object, such as the end of a paper clip (opened up) and stick the paper clip or sharp object into the hole. This is suppose to reset the unit. However, I have heard of cases when people of done what I just described but the indicator late still will not reside to green. I hope this helps you.

Red light on air filter


After spending hours searching for this supposed little hole easy to miss, I called customer service. I found out that it's easy to miss because it doesn't exist!

Here's the correct answer: Once you've replaced the filters, turn the unit back on. Then, with the machine running, press and hold down the on/off power button for about two seconds. The red light will flash and then turn off.

Hepa filter


The red light indicates a plugged filter. Replace the filters plug the machine in and get a paper clip. Streighten out the clip and put it through the tiny hole in the top. You'll feel it push a switch that will give a click you can feel. Keep holding the clip wire down for several seconds. When the red flashes remove the clip wire. The light will stay off if the filter is clean.

Replace Filter Indicator Will Not Turn Off


I owned the previous model of the same unit with the hole for the paperclip. But it wore out and I replaced it with the HAP422 and found the same issue; no hole to "reset" the light. I was just fooling with it and determined that "some" switch would reset it and finally held the power on button on for a few seconds, after which, the red light flashed and then went out. Problem solved. BUT THERE IS NOT ONE WORD IN THE MANUAL TO TELL YOU THIS! WHY NOT?
