Turn the Master ON/ OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. The 12-15 minute timeout should have allowed the unit to reset itself.

John, when the clean filter light came on, did you clean the filter? Or just unplugged it and tried again?
In 7 hours, the unit probably picked up a lot of dust, that's why the clean filter light came on. Try cleaning the filter( if you haven't already) and that may solve your problem. When you reinstall the filter, be sure that it is seated properly, so the the safety trigger switch is activated.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

When clean the filter in one hour the machine stop and i need clean back

clean the metal filter grid blades with a long strip of scotch brite pad and also clean the corona wires in the back of the unit very gently with light grade sandpaper. i had this problem and tried cleaning my unit so many times that i was ready to toss it into the trash. now it works normally. i did some spray painting in the room where the unit was operating and believe it picked up a coating of paint causing the sparking. good luck!

It sounds like the fan motor may need to be oiled, front and rear. That has been my experience with stopping and starting at that length of interval.

I had the same problem with mine, it would start then go into drying mode. I got it to work properly by smacking it around for about a week then it went back to it's lil tricks with drying mode again. After trying just about everything short of using it for target pratice, I made sure it was clean and dry then I turned it to the Medium setting, pressed the power button waited just a second for the fan to go into the meduim fan level, then I pressed the power button again holding it in before it went into the drying cycle, while I held the button, (don't release) I wadded up some tape to keep the button depressed then I put some tape over that to keep it that way. It works perfect! Note, mine never had any crackling issues to begin with, just the drying cycle thing so use this suggestion at your own risk. Good luck!

Unit likely had large partical like dog or cat hair cross over cell, Unlplug and remove pre-filter & cell.

The unit has a timer that knows when power has been removed & front grille has been taken off by 2 micro switches in back of front grille that is connected to the units control board.

While you are there remove pre-filter & Cell, if ok and no debris is found & theres no need to wash, wait 10 to 15 minutes replace all & plug back in.

You should see the LED display flashing Clean Cell & Cell button flashing, hold Cell button in at least 3 seconds this may take longer to reset. Unit should turn back on.

This condition has happened to my 2 units on occasion even though I had washed the cell only a week or two previously.

The unit will turn off if a cell overload is detected by way of large static discharge. If I know the cell is clean, I just unplug the unit & take the front grille off for 15 minutes then & replace it plug back in & reset & all goes back to normal operation.
