Sit on the top, and pull on the handle very hard. It will pop off, and most likely not break.
Then you will need to take the nut off with some pliers, and glue it back into place.

Most likely some water got into your filter at some point, and it rusted. Making it nearly impossible to screw out. So when you turn the top it spins the nut instead of screwing out. Mostly due to the circular type nut that Honeywell poorly chose.

Unable to remove back panel


There are two Philip screws located on the edges of the back. Remove them this will allow the back to be taken off. Then remove the two screws at the top bracket that holds the filter in place..Ypu can remove the filter and bracket No need to remove any more of the screws on the back . From there you will see the plates and another filter. You can get at them by removing the two screws on the left and right of the plates..You can take the plates and filter out for cleaning and change the bulb if needed....NOTE; the filter on the back is resting on a activation switch just make sure when replacing the filter and bracket is pushed down to activate or the machine will not work..good luck....

The Intelli-Check™ Filter Monitors will indicate replacement of the pre-filter and the

HEPA filter. Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),

you may need to check and replace the filters more or less frequently.

To check Expected Filter Life Usage

When the unit is turned on, quickly press the appropriate filter monitor button. The

pre-filter light will flash up to 3 times and the HEPA filter light will flash up to 4 times,

depending upon how much expected filter life has been used.

PREFILTER:

1 flash = from new, up to 1/3 expected life used up

2 flashes = between 1/3 and 2/3 expected life used up

3 flashes = between 2/3 and all of expected life used up

Remains on = time to check/replace pre-filter

HEPA FILTER:

1 flash = from new, up to 1/4 expected life used up

2 flashes = between 1/4 and 1/2 expected life used up

3 flashes = between 1/2 and 3/4 expected life used up

4 flashes = between 3/4 and all of expected life used up

Remains on = time to check/replace HEPA filter

To RESET Filter Monitor

When the filter monitor light remains on, it is time to check/replace the filter and reset

the filter monitor, if needed. With the unit powered on, press and hold the appropriate

filter monitor button down for approximately 5 seconds until the light turns off.
Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours

Where and how can I order new filters.


You never need to ORDER new filters for your SUN AIRE purifier unit. Our pre-filter is LIFETIME/WASHABLE 0.5 micron 2-stage electro-static and NEVER needs replacement. Our pre-filter saves you about $100-200 per year in expensive replacement HEPA/charcoal/carbon filters on other units.

V5 filter replace - how to reset red flashing light?


Hello,

So after you have replaced the V5 Cell Filter in the IQ Air, here are the steps you'll need to follow in order to reset the filter indicators:

  • At the main menu on the control panel, push the menu button 7 times until you get to the screen that says Replace Filter.
  • At the Replace Filter screen, press and hold the Enter Key until the cursor appears, and is flashing.
  • Press the UP arrow button on the keypad until you get to the V5 Cell Filter.
  • At the V5 Cell Filter screen press the Enter Key to confirm your filter reset selection. This will turn the corresponding filter LED to a flashing red light. IQAir requires that your reconfirm the filter selection to prevent inadvertently resetting the wrong filter. If you chose the wrong filter, press the menu key after pressing the enter the first time to disregard the filter change command.
  • To confirm the filter reset selection, press enter a second time, which will reset the filter life, and reset the filter hours.
You can repeat these instructions for the other two filters on your machine when it's time. Here's a link to the product manual for your IQ Air Health Pro Plus which will give you the same instructions, as well as other maintenance instructions.

How do I change out the air filter for the 2200 model? Not sure where to open it up in order to check the air filter and if needed change it out. Thank you.


After you pull out the filter case. There is a tab on the bottom and on the top that holds the ends in undo these.lift out the combs and the filter. Open the new filter and hook it onto the tabs of the filter case and close the ends back up. Get one of the combs in all the cracks of the new filter then slide the next comb in right next to the one that is installed and slide it down to the furthest slot where the combs go. and do this for the rest of the combs until they are all inserted. once they are all in replace the filter case into the cavity be sure to line the slots up on the case and the cabinet and put the door back on.

I have an Oreck air purifier model (air 4000). The power light is on but the fan will not turn unless I put it on high speed and manually push the fan to give it a jump start for it to start running but...


I tried that solution and it did not work due to the worn bushing. I went on line to CSH incorporated and ordered #534 Open Ventilation Fan & Blower Duty motor. The motor is a ball bearing motor rather than bushing, and is an exact replacement for the Fasco motor on the original. The repair is easy and a cheap repair at cost of about $67 dollars for the motor plus shipping. The unit now works great again.

Can't remove the filter from my Pur Flavor Options faucet mount water filter


When mine gets stuck I stick the handle of a fork or spoon into the hole where the water comes out and use that to unscrew it. Works like a charm every time.
