After cleaning the filters or changing them it does take a minute for it kick on... Now if it hasn't kicked on yet, you might need to reset it. there should be a reset button on the top, if not what you need to do is shut it off and then unplug for about 5 minutes. somtimes the fan might be dirty or clogged so i would check that as well and make sure nothing is interferring with it moving. if that doesn't work, cause i have used this product before. what you need to do is call the manufacturer let them know your warranty. as long as your under the warranty they should be able to replace the unit for you. they will need the date code/ or the reciept to verify the warranty. If you have the reciept they will ask you to fax it in because it is quicker. once they have that, they will give you a call back to discuss other options if you are still under warranty.

I had a Bionaire BAP1500 which was broken, light up but nothing happens.
i also have a BAP412 and BAP242 which need to have their filters replaced every 3 months - which is very expensive.
I thought i would try the permatech filters from my 1500 in the other 2 purifiers to see if they would fit - they do! and they both work perfectly with the filters more buying filters for me
So just a tip to say if you have a BAP1500 and its broken, keep the filters because you can use them in a much cheaper model!

I have recently purchased a bionaire bap 1550 air purifier. Is it normal for the recirculated air only to come out of the left hand side of the front grill

no that isn't normal. it should be coming out of both sides cause the air intake is in the back of the unit where the filters are. try to reset the unit but the pin hole at the top or unplugging the unit for about 10 seconds.... if that doesn't work i would call the manufacturer and to see what other ways or if the unit can be replaced.

BAP1500-U my oscillator motor issue

to get the motor usually don't sell those seperatly to be honest. depending on how old the unit is you can call the manufacturer let them know the issue and they should be able to replace it for you because it's on the company not your fault. if your problem doesn't get resolved through the representative please ask for a supervisor and they will be able to figure out what to do for you sooner

Bionaire BAP1700

on the bap1700 it is very quiet. i used to have one myself. sometimes you will feel the air and sometimes you won't all depends. if the fan is running than the unit is working properly. now if your hearing any noises or anything like that then there's a problem. but no to answer your question you didn't buy a lemon. if you have any other questions please let us know.
