I took the blades and a washrag in the shower with me and cleaned them. Then I put them in front of the air vent for 8-10 hours. Then I put them back in the unit. Sparking and snapping could be from dirt moving through the unit.

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.

I just bought a used 880 and when running I see small "sparks" from the plate behind the fan. It looks like the spark you get when using a battery powered fly swatter. That is the best way to...


DO NOT RUN THE MACHINE WITH THE DEFECTIVE PLATE! The sparks indicate that the plate is either defective, wet, or dirty. You can try cleaning the plate, then inspecting it for flaws.
The plates (4" white ceramic squares with screen glued to center of each side) must be clean and inserted correctly.
1) Soak the plates in equal parts plain ammonia/water for 5 minutes. Scrub gently with a toothbrush or small veggie brush. Rinse well. Blow dry or air dry. DO NOT use a towel or paper to dry it off. Avoid touching the screen with your fingers.
2) Inspect the plate carefully for cracks, discoloration, broken wires, loose mucilage, burned areas, or visible dirt or bug parts (!). If the plate is flawed or corrupted, you need to order a new one from Vollara (formerly EcoQuest/Alpine) at 800-989-2299. Use #16618 for the referral number.
3) Clean the metal fingers with a cotton swab and alcohol.
4) Insert the plates firmly, making sure they go in on the tracks, and that the contact fingers rest firmly on the screen part.

The little flickering light is simply an indicator of power, and is normal.

Dear Expert, I do hear scary sound like a electric spark once in a while, and then stop. Should I turn off the switch? Thank you.


Arcing (snapping) seems too frequent

1. If the electronic cell(s) are wet from washing, turn the air cleaner off for two to

three hours.

2. Check the cell(s) for broken ionizer wires or bent plates. Repair if necessary.
3. Wash cell(s) and prefilter(s) if dirty.

How do I clean the Oreck Air 7


Hi There,

Here's how you can clean the machine, and I have copied the link to the owners manual below for your convenience.

Cleaning
The Cabinet
You can clean the air purifier cabinet with mild, non-abrasive cleanser and a
soft cloth. IMPORTANT: Unplug the unit from its electrical power source.
Do not spray cleansers or furniture polish into the louver or grill areas.

Collector Cell
Indicator light is green under normal operation and flashes red
when the cell requires cleaning. To clean, proceed as follows:
The red "WASH CELL" light will flash or illuminate when it is
time to clean your cell. However, it is recommended that every four to
eight weeks or if snapping sounds become frequent, clean your
electronic air purifier. Your electronic air purifier is still filtering the air
when the red light illuminates. Cleaning your electronic air purifier is a
snap too... and a must for efficient operation.
1. Turn the unit off and unplug it from the electric power source. If wall
mounted, remove unit from wall.
2. Remove front grill by unscrewing the retainer screw under the grill on
the cabinet bottom. (fig. 1)

3. Pull the cell out of the cabinet by using the two small handles on the
front of the cell. (fig. 2)

4. Snap off the charcoal odor absorber from the back of the cell. Change
as necessary for continued odor removal. (fig. 3)
5. Slide off pre-filter. This can be cleaned with the cell and reused. (fig. 4)
NOTE: Handle the electronic cell with care. Damaged metal plates
and/or broken wires will cause the air purifier to malfunction. (Do
not wash charcoal odor absorber; it is disposable.)
Cleaning with Assail-A-Cell® Cell Cleaner:
6. Using Assail-A-Cell® Cleaner, thoroughly saturate the cell and prefilter.
Be sure to spray between each cell plate and cover every
surface. Allow product to soak for a few minutes, not allowing it to dry.
Rinse thoroughly with water. For extremely heavy deposits, repeat the
process.
IMPORTANT: Dry the collection cell thoroughly outside of the
air purifier before reinstalling it into the air purifier. Ensure
that all areas including corners and areas that may trap
water are dry before reinstalling into the air purifier. DO NOT
place a wet or damp collection cell in the air purifiereff1848.jpg

The Honeywell electronic air cleaner constantly "snaps" even though it is clean. I have inspected the wires and fins, clean and spaced properly. Any suggestions?


It is normal to hear occasional snapping from your Electronic Air Cleaner. This occurs when larger particles are caught by the ionizer wires. Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both the cell and check clean the bottom portion by using a vacuum cleaner attachment. If the snapping continues with the cells remove contact your contractor.

Eletrical snapping sound


This is normal....when dust passes through this filter it is "Zapped" that's how the electronic air filter works

Sparks shooting down sides of ozone plates


Disconnect the power and give it a good cleaning with a SOFT BRISTLE PAINT BRUSH. Outside is best. Blow it out gently with canned air after you brush the dirt loose.
