I've had the same problem with my 9600. Leaked no matter what I tried. The best thing to do is contact Pur at this address and explain your problem.

We purchased this at a thrift store. Can you tell me what the ionizer setting is for


The ionizer cleans the air. If it's working properly, it will smell like the air right after a lightning storm. You should use as little as possible, based on the size of the area, you're using the unit in. Do not allow it to blow directly on you or anyone else. The higher you can place the unit, the better it will work. Match the fan speed to ionizer setting.

Hope this helped you.

The string inside my ionic breeeze quadra is broken. Is it possible to fix it


Not so fast with the screwing part. Go to a music store, buy the G string wire(008)gauge- at least 41 inches long- for a guitar.
If you have a digital camera make a video/pics history of your dis-assembly steps.
Remove the ozone eliminator-by pulling it off the tower.
Start with the base 4 screws, followed by the 2 collar screws at the base.
NOTICE that there is a space between the two halves at the bottom. I paid NO attention to this space-boy did I ever try to snugly close that one before I looked at another one to see that this separation is there for a reason.
Next: remove the "TINY"12 screws - 6 on the front/back side of the units ribs-look for these.
Take pics of each step. You will be happy you did this.
Store all of these diff. screws in separate jars.
Open the unit now like a wallet. Notice that the sloped top control button/light module can now be removed. See those 2 black square plastic covers-they hide a spring and an upside down W shaped wire holder. The broken wire can now be removed. If you are lucky, you may be able to to twist your new wire-after pushing it through the cleaning bead -with the one going down to the bottom module. Mine was too brittle and broke apart as soon as I touched it.
Remember: The 2 wires you see are just one 41 inch long 008 gauge guitar string.
They thread through a signal contact bracket at the bottom of the unit that is activated by the breaking of the wire to turn the unit OFF. Getting to this bracket is somewhat difficult and requires patience. Take a lot of pics to be able to reassemble the S 1637. I pulled the 41 inch long string under this signal bracket, evened off the ends, moved the top module down 2 inches and twisted the ends around the W shaped bracket that compresses the spring.
Honestly, I had to adjust the spring two times because I left off the cleaning bead. Now just reverse the steps and you got your unit working. The new string seems to push a lot more air.
Before you replace all of the screws, fold the unit together, insert the blades , put 2 sets of veggy rubber bands around the top and bottom and plug in/turn it on. Mine works now better than new. Did I mention that I had to do 2. The second was done in 2 hours.
Good luck.

How to change the flter


Turn off the unit and unplug it. Turn the air purifier on it's side and unscrew the locking mechanism (turn counter-clockwise) on the base of the unit. Remove the base assembly from the unit. Remove the filter assembly and find the seam of the pre-filter. Carefully separate the fastener and then remove the pre-filter from the HEPA filter.

Discard the filter(s) being replaced. Then remove the new filter from the packaging and discard the packaging and plastic. Carefully wrap the pre-filter around the HEPA filter so that the ends meet. Fasten the ends together with the fastener.

Place the filter assembly in the air purifier and reattach the base. Then tighten the locking mechanism. Turn the unit right side up, plug it in and turn it on.

You can find a pdf of the manual here: http://www.honeywellpurifiers.com/product/0-90271-50150-4.html .

I hope this helps.

Ionic breeze quadra not functioning


I had the same problem and could not find an answer anywhere. So here's what I figured out. The small wires running from top to bottom just inside the cover are your problem. Not the metal grid with plates that you can remove. The buzzing sound you heard is the resistance one or more of the wires is causing. The resisitance tells the pc board that your grid must be wet and therefore the unit goes into drying mode. I replaced my small wires and my unit is working better than ever. The wire is .005 diameter( important so that you keep the same resistance flowing to the pc board) and can be purchased at any good suppy house. I have since repaired another unit with an even simplier fix. I took the unit into a dark room and then turned it on. Watching the grid I could see the wire arching that was causing the resistance. Unplugged the unit, turned it over and with a flat head screw driver pushed the wire off its base connedtion. Turned the unit right side up and removed the wire from its top support. The unit works fine without the troubled wire. Hope this helps.

Breeze just stop running.....


At the rear of the unit is the filter. When the filter is removed, the small screw or whatever it is called, that is attached to the filter on the lower right side, disengages the the safety switch just below the filter on the unit itself, if there is nothing to hold down this safety switch the unit will not operate. So take off the filter, there is a small notch on the unit, inside this notch is the safety switch, Try pressing down on this switch and see what happens. I hope this helps. Also, it may be the fuse.

One hissing one shut down


I have two Quadras not sure about the GPS. The only way to clean them properly is to complete the folowing steps. This will eliminate the hissing noises and intermittent shutdowns. Clean the blade unit as normal and leave it out of the unit. Unplug the unit, remove the four phillip screws on the top of the unit where the collector grid slides down. Next remove the four screws holding on to the base of the unit. After this you will see two additional screws also by the base that need to be removed. Look carefully between the grills of the unit and you will see about 12 to fifteen tiny screws that hold the grill together. After these are removed take off the UL label and seprate the grill. You may have to gently pull up on the top where the power switch is located. I have found if you use a lightly dampened scotch brite pad to carefully clean the two wires works best. Clean the wires and pins at the bottom and make sure all is well. Use a microfiber or lint free cloth to gently wipe everthing down and make sure the unit is dry. Put it back together and put the UL sticker back on.

My Fan on My Flair purifier is not turning when I turn on the unit. Nervous about poking around in there don't want to break it, any ideas how to fix this? Thanks


To fix it..........there is one screw on the unit on the outside.........really long!.......remove that and the entire unit just slides out of the housing..........

The replacement fan motor can be purchased on ebay....ranging from $21.95 to $32.95...depending on the model Flair that you have...the most common one is the $29.95 replacement...

Really quite simple to remove and replace!!! and well worth it!

Hope this helps.

Water Filter Leaks


Since you weren't very specific where it leaks or when it started (like after a filter change) it could be tough to troubleshoot this leak.

If it is leaking at the faucet connection try tightening up where it screws onto the faucet. Depending on your strength (or lack of) you may need to use pliers to get a tight connection. Don't go crazy tight or it will crack the plastic fitting. If it still leaks remove the unit from the faucet and check the rubber washer inside where it screws onto the faucet. Make sure it's still there and is centered inside the cup and seated properly. Then reattach the unit to the faucet and tighten it well.

If it's leaking from the main body try removing the filter and reinstalling it making sure you have seated the filter properly and screwed on the cover correctly, and all the way. When it is tight the water outlet will be exactly at the bottom of the unit. Sometimes it's tricky getting it tight enough especially with wet hands.

Finally, if the leak is coming from the filter on/off selector this could be tough to fix. I would try firmly pushing and pulling the selector knob in and out several times while in both the on and off positions. This may re-seat the leaking seal. I wouldn't be too hopeful about this fix though. You may need to replace the unit if this part is leaking.
