It's probably arcing due to a buildup of oxidized particles from the air and the high voltage field wires. Spraying electrical contact cleaner in the vicinity of the spark/arc may clean it -- make sure the unit is not plugged in when you do this and that you give it plenty of time to dry before plugging it back in (couple of hours). If cleaing doesn't help, there's not much you can do -- the wire will eventually burn through and break. Then it's back to Oreck or to the landfill.

Why does my car just turn over but wont start

A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

Won't start

Hi James,
Did truck die on you while driving or just not start one day? It is very likely you need a new fuel pump. AIRTEX Part # E2363M, but double check. Checking bad pump requires OBD II scanner to read codes:
Changing fuel pump is not hard, but takes a set of skills, time & care is also required. 2.3L is fuel injected which means it is in your fuel tank.
(If you had a carburetor the pump would be at front of engine & easier)
You will need a trusty mechanic or some good friends..New pump is about $135 from Rockauto slightly more from O'Reilly etc.. Dealer will double that price, local mechanic will charge $150-180 plus hourly labor.
Something else in addition to air filter, that you can do yourself is change fuel filter & plugs. Get better mileage to help pay for new pump. Fuel filter is about $30 for good one. The fuel filters are located in nearly same location on all Rangers regardless of engine & year.
Changing spark plugs
If it is firing, but doesn't quite want to go also be sure you have spark.
Remove plug wire number one and carefully put a nail into spark plug cap, rest it on the exhaust manifold while you watch have someone turn the engine over for a brief moment to be sure you see spark. DO NOT TOUCH while turning over or you can get a nasty shock.
Check fuses as well. PEACE

How do I disaasemble the unit to clean the filter inside

There is no filter inside the unit. It's on the back of the unit. Once you remove it, you'll have access to the inside of the air purifier. I think what you wanted to know is, how to clean the plaques inside. Once the filter is removed, you'll see the plaques and they just slide out of their individual holder(s).

I have a HoneyWell F300E electronic air cleaner, installed on a furnace in a house I just bought. I have never owned one of these things before. The filter arcs and makes sparking noises constantly,...

Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both electronic cells. Make sure that there is no hair, dirt, sand or any debris on the bottom inside the Electronic air cleaner. If there is, remove what you can by hand. If a lot of debris is left in bottom of the Air Cleaner, you may want to use a vacuum attachment to see if you can vacuum up what you can.

had the same problem, sparking in the lower section. i cleaned the grid blades on the filter with a scotch brite pad thoroughly in the area that was sparking and cleaned the corona wires inside the back of the unit gently by rubbing with light grade sandpaper. the unit runs like new. give it a try.

I need to buy one filter

we are also expierencing the same crackling problem. This machine is only a year old.....

anyone find anyway to resolve the crackling? I have not contacted Brookstone, but it doesn't sound too promising anyway.

These air purifiers are not cheap and they should back up their products.

Brookstone pure ion filters

You need to reset it, unplug the unit and take out both filters. Then, plug it back and and simultaneously and firmly slam both filters into the back of it at the same time. Before putting both filters back inside the until, also vacuum out the insides in case there is hair/dust inside of it that has accumulated.
Also, make sure your filters are 100% dry before every putting them back inside the unit.
Good luck!
