There is significant evidence to suggest that ionizers may do more harm than good.  All, to a greater or lesser extent, emit ozone which is a pollutant and hazardous to health.  Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent, and has the potential to damage any organic matter (especially your lungs) that it comes in to contact with.
Writing as a qualified chemist and biologist, I would not want to be in the same house as one of these, let alone the same room. Not just this particular model, but any of them.
I hope this helps.

Bearing on brush is hard to turn and smells like it's burning

bearing hard to move will put strain on the belt and burn it. the bearing is easily removable pull it off, sometimes its just a good clean it will need, if will not come off tape it off. remove the muck build up and give the bearing a good soak in some wd40 or oil and wipe off and check for good movement then replace the belt. as it will snap more easy now it has been heated up.

Our Brookstone air purifier sounds like a bug zapper in spite of cleaning filter. It's less than a year old. What is the problem?

have you cleaned the connections where the filter connects . There is prob dust and dirt down inside the filter , keeping it from making a good connection. The zapping sound is from the electricty jumping the gap. A good cleaning of the inside should help. Try attaching a small hose to your vac to fit down inside the unit. give the electrical connections a good cleaning . If that dosen't work take unit apart and wipe down with alchol that you can buy at any drugstore

The controls do not operate on this unit. All the settings are frozen in the maximum position.

Sounds like microprocessor bad or manual button stuck; without checking with meters..Good luck..Use it like that or pay to get it refurbished..Too bad Ecoquest didn't save repair parts for their Factory..I am upset..I was a dealer at cleaning..

Are there filters that have to be changed and where do you get them?

Yes. You will have a prefilter and after that you will have a HEPA filter. Keep good maintenance on the prefilters which are not washable. You will need to check it once a month to see if it is time to replace. If you have good maintenance on the unit and change the cheaper prefilter, you will get years of service out of you HEPA filter. Bad maintenance means replacing the HEPA filter which is a good chunk of the cost of the purifier.
