This air purifier has not reduced my allergy symptoms.
This air purifier has been running on high speed for 3 weeks now in my bedroom of medium size and the item was cleaned twice so far. My allergy symptoms to the fall season ( with leaves decaying producing mold) and cat dander have not abated one iota. Upon cleaning this item twice thus far I did notice the metal blades contained dust and I cleaned the unit per manual instructions. The unit runs fine but there`s no let up at all in my allergic reactions. I do not therefore believe this item really removes from the air what the manufacturer says it does.

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.
There are 3 settings for optimum air filtration. You can operate your Holmes air purifier continuously on the Medium (2) setting. It's rugged motor has been designed to give many years of use. For quieter operation (such as bedroom), select the Low (1) setting. When high levels of air polution are present, select the HIGH (3) setting to quickly circulate and filter the room air.

this stuff only really works with people that have pet and grass allergies. it will not help contact allergies like bed bugs, mites etc. the only way you can find out the full list of ingredient is to contact febreze, your son may be allergic to the activator in the spray. alot of people are more allergic to this than anything as it coats your lungs or contacts the skin check for red marks and itching and loss of appetite. also it is best to have a doctor find what he allergic to, there is a number of tests that can be done to find what it is then there is a way of you finding the right applicant that can help hope this help
Have a Indoor air quality inspection preformed in your house. Then spend the money to have a air purifier installed for the whole house. In this day you often get what you pay for. It may be possible that your Doctor can provide you with a prescripition for the Air purifer to be installed.
That is packing materials. It was placed there to protect the vent louvers on the front from breaking during shipping. Apparently, some of them chipped or broke and found their way into the louver section. Simply clean them out. Small pieces can be sucked out with a vacuum that has a hose and crevice tool attachment.
By all means run the unit while you wait for the new RCI cell. The purifier will be less effective in killing germs while the RCI cell is out. It will still work to reduce the allergens in the air. Hope this helps you.
Actually, your purifier is working as it should. The black soot is due to the negatives ions which attach themselves to the smoke/dust/dirt particles in the room and make them drop to floor. If you don't smoke it won't be much of a problem. Some minor residue will be found in and around the unit but this comes about because the negative ions make dust and other particulates fall to the floor. A quick wipe or vacuum easily eliminates this problem. Besides, I would rather have them on the floor than floating around in the air, wouldn't you?
Because this purifier is essentially a filter in a box with a fan pulling/pushing air through, I can only guess that "will not operate" means that the fan isn't moving the air.
1) Is there a fuse that you can check to see if it's blown? 2) Have you tried resetting the Filter Life Indicator button? 3) Is it still within warranty?
The instructions for this unit recommend operating it at MEDIUM level on a long-term basis - - evidently, it isn't designed for continuous high-speed operation. If it was running with a blanket over it, it's conceivable that the fan motor overheated and quit. Unless you are into repairing electric motors (probably not, the best you can do would be to replace it). Try contacting Jarden Consumer Solutions Customer Service at 1-800-546-5637 - - if they won't sell you a motor, you might be able to find a generic one on the Internet, but with a MSRP (Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price) of ~$90 (when new), it's going to be easy to spend more time & money fixing this than it's worth. There are lots more durable purifiers out there, though you'll likely have to pay for it.
