Remove the batteries, on the back.

You may remove the kerosene left over, by using your filling pump and transferring it, to the approved container, you use when buying Kerosene.

First, remove the wire handle. Pull gently outwards with the wire handle horizontally.

Second, lift one side of surrounding grill, until the top and bottom sides come off. Do the same on the opposite side.

Third, remove the top cover, by pulling upward.

fourth, unscrew the two side screws, located on the lower part of the cylindrical shape, that was surrounded by the wire grill, that was just removed.

Fifth, Remove the front know, by pullung outward.

Sixth, remove the cover and note that the balancing weight will come off. Very easy to reinstall.

Seventh, Remove four nuts, on the outer space of the wick and cover assembly.

Eight, Remove the wick by pulling downwards and nothing that there are two pins. When reassembling with new wicker, assure that the pins in the new wicker fit the hole openings, properly.

Installing follow the reverse of the above noted points. The whole work should not take more than 20 minutes.

Tools required are: flat screw driver, need nose pliers.

Be a little patient.

How do I clean the inside glass on my electric fireplace

To remove any dust, simply use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the interior. Gently dust any media such as logs or glass inside your electric fireplace as well.

Cleaning Steps

1.Disconnect from Power Supply Before beginning to clean your electric fireplace, turn the heater off and allow to cool completely. Always disconnect the electric fireplace from the power supply before cleaning.
2.Check the Electrical Components Check any wires and plugs to make sure that they are not worn or frayed. This is a rare occurrence, but can become a fire hazard if not addressed. If this happens, consult a professional to repair or replace before using your electric fireplace again.
3.Clean the Heater With a clean, dry cloth, wipe down the surface of the heater. Using the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner, gently clean the heater outlets. This will remove any dust or debris from the heater and keep it running at top performance.
4.Clean Both Sides of the Glass Follow the instructions in your owner's manual for removing the front glass panel. Once removed, you can clean both sides of the glass. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will scratch the glass. Dust can be easily removed with a clean, dry cloth. Fingerprints or other marks can be removed with a damp cloth; dry the glass with a lint free cloth to prevent water spots from forming.
5.Dust the Interior Dust may accumulate inside your electric fireplace, like any other unit in your home. To remove any dust, simply use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the interior. Gently dust any media such as logs or glass inside your electric fireplace as well. When you are finished, place the front glass panel back onto your fireplace following the instructions in the owner's manual.
6.Remove the Soot Just kidding! You never have to worry about dirty, grimy soot with your electric fireplace. Instead, just relax and enjoy!

How to clean the lense and screen in a projection TV.

When you replace your lamp or do work in your dlp or projection tv you should also clean the lenses and reflective surfaces to allow more light to pass through giving a sharper and brighter image.

Inspect your unit to see how the screen is attached. Most newer units have the screen attached at the bottom with screws. To access the screws you will need to remove the speaker grille. To remove the grille gently pull out on the edge of the grille at a corner until it pops loose. Continue around the perimeter until the grille is removed. Now you should be able to get to the screws.

Remove all the screws at the bottom of the screen and any other screws which obviously appear to be holding the screen on. Grasp the screen by both sides and lift it straight up. You may have to give it a tug to get it started. Once removed lay the screen on the carpet on it's front.

Using a lint free cloth, usually cloth diapers will work, and a glass cleaner with no ammonia, spray the cloth and using a circular motion clean the lenses and mirrors. Be careful when cleaning the lenses as they are plastic and will scratch. Never wipe them with a dry cloth or paper towels. Do not wipe them anymore than necessary but you may have to clean them several times if the lenses are very dirty. Clean them until you see no streaks or smears.

If your mirror is foil be very careful how much pressure you apply. If your mirror is glass cleaning will be no problem but be careful not to break it. Foil mirrors generally require several cleanings and a light touch.

Never spray any of the parts with the cleaner!!! Always spray the cloth away from the unit then wipe the parts to be cleaned in a circular pattern.

Remember to clean the rear of the screen being careful not to apply too much pressure. Do not get any liquid between the screen surfaces which are usually comprised of three parts. Less cleaner here is better.

When all surfaces shine and are free of dust, reassemble the unit and you should have a much better picture.

Does the ionic breeze blow air

They only move the air slightly. They are not like a conventional fan.

They do not rotate.

They do work effectively for mold spores and dust. If yours has not been cleaned in a while remove the front element from above and spray the stainless bars down with an acidic claener like "Formula 409" and wipe them down after rinsing. On the unit itself unplug it and remove the front and rear grill br pressing a small tab at the bottom of the grille and push upwars. Be careful with front grille as there is an ionizing wire there towards the inside of the unit. If the unit has come from someone else, with an emery board and gentle pressure just make one pass witht he wire gently between board and your finger. drawing towards the spring loaded end. Do the same to the two wires inside the unit housing if present, Witht he rear grille removed, remove the bulb and wipe it down with a cleaner if needed- it should be clear. as it is a UV bulb.

Dust out hte base area with a small paintbrush and remove as much dust as you can from it. If need be a slighly damp rag cna also be used.

With the front of the Ionic breeze unit facing you, there are 2 conductive rubber strips that also need to be wiped down with a lsightly damp rag. They should be removing some black dust. Also wipe down the inside of the front being mindful of the two stainless wires.

Let unit dry off and reassemble.

With left knob turned to left- no light should appear. Turn knob to the right and the UV tube should light and the Boost button should light up blue when pressed once- and green when pressed a second time and then off if pressed a third time. It will only light when the left knob is turned to right.

The right knob adjusts "Low," "Medium" and "High" intensity of the high voltage applied to elements.

Alow unit to dry before powering it on.

A working system should raise the hairs on the back of you hand or give you some other sensation of moving air

How do i clean filters

This particular projector does not have filters. As per their website, "The filter free design of this projector, along with the long life lamp (up to 4000 hours operating time, mean less ongoing maintenance on the projector." from

Cleaning instructions from the manual are: "Cleaning of the projector and the ventilation slots

Use a soft cloth to clean the projector and the ventilation grilles. When the grilles become dirty, wipe them with a soft cloth dampened
with diluted mild detergent, and then wipe them with a dry cloth."

White spots on scanned images

First thing you should do is to check whether the original image is clean and no dust or anything.

The next one is to clean the scanner glass. Use a clean cloth to wipe the scanner glass to make sure there is no dust or anything that might reflect the light from the scanner that can cause white spots.

Please give us update regarding this issue.

Thank you,
