Re: The low button light is going out.

"A blinking light indicates when the blades should be wiped clean with a damp cloth." I actually had a "handyman" contract last year to visit an elderly gentleman once a month and clean all 9 of his Ionic Breeze GP air purifiers. Before I did that for him, they would make hissing noises and he really didn't like that. Here's how to clean the operative compnents of these machines: First, unplug the machine and place on a work surface, such as a table or kitchen counter. Second, remove the metal blade insert from the top by gripping the release tab and lifting it up and out. Also remove the front and back grilles by pressing on the plastic tab at the bottom and lifting up on them. Third, use a damp rag or paper towel to wipe the three metal blades clean. Do not immerse this assembly in water, because it has to be completely dry when re-installing it in the machine. Fourth, use a small piece of damp paper towel to VERY GENTLY wipe clean the two thin wires inside the unit. These are located behind the two rubbery flat blades just inside the unit and can be accessed from the front side. You won't damage these rubbery flat blades by pushing your hand gently between them, but be VERY CAREFUL when wiping the wires clean. (This step is important, as the wires must be clean.) Fifth, using another bit of damp paper towel, carefully clean the wire attached to the inside of the front grille. Dry this off with a dry bit of paper towel, then clean any accumulated dirt off the front & back grilles. Check the metal contact near the bottom of the front grille (attached to the wire) to verify that it's clean and will make good electrical contact. Sixth, pick the unit up and turn it upside-down & right-side up about 6 to 8 times. The two wires inside have plastic beads on them that slide up and down the wires. This brushes any bits of leftover dust or lint off of the wires. (Again, these wires must be VERY clean.) Seventh, replace the front and back plastic grilles by placing them in their slots and sliding them down to snap into place. Verify that the assembly with the three metal blades is COMPLETELY dry, using a hair dryer if necessary to dry off damp areas, then slide it back into place from the top of the machine. Now the cleaning process is done, so plug the unit in and turn it on to test operation. If it makes ANY noise, then some component is not completely cleaned off, or still has a presence of moisture, which must be completely dried off before the machine is ready for operation. Hope this helps! ;)

Oreck SL will not work on medium setting

Either your switch is not making a contact internally or the wire that runs from the motor to the switch is loose or not connected, or that speed is burned out on the motor. Those motors have a separate wire for each speed, so it's either not getting power to the motor from the switch or the that speed setting is burned out on the motor its self. I would just work around it and use the low or high setting until you can take it apart to test if the motor is getting power from the switch, if so then the motor is bad, usually the bearings go out on the motors before the wiring does. Unless your motor was on medium and was stopped for a long period and overheated that setting which will melt the wires and cause it to not work. They have a safety switch on the motors now to keep this from happening.

My Ionic Breeze air purifier makes an intermittent static noise when operating. What could be the cause and how can I fix it.

you need to turn it off and remove plates,put in kitchen sink and spray with windex and dry with paper towels, now clean the bottom of the three plates too.
before you reinstall the plates look down inside you will see three thin lines of metal,make sure there is no lint or dust on them,reinstall and let set for five min. to allow any windex that might still be wet then turn on low for a couple of min.then go to medium

MIDI Ionic Breeze quit working

Unit seems to need reset...To do this simply, with unit still plugged in, set to off by selecting on button until there are no high, med, or low lights on. unplug unit from wall for about 15 seconds then plug back into wall socket and select your favorite setting high, med. or low. The order in which you perform this task must be as stated above and the unit must be clean and the door and cleaning rod must be in home position. Hope this helps, mines working fine now but took a couple tries to find right order to reset.

Replacement Filter

i do apologize for the inconvenience that your having with the product. The only other thing that i can suggest cause you already did the majority of the troubleshooting, is that there should be a small pin hole on the top of the unit. that's the reset. stick a small pin in there and hold for about 3 seconds and then the unit should be reset. if that doesn't work there is something internal that is going on. recheck the manual for the trouble shooting options as well.
