My Brookstone PureIon Advanced air filter is stuck in TURBO mode and I cannot get it to slow down! how do I UN-stick it?

Sounds like the control is damaged. You could try calling Brookstone service and see what they say (they have a one-year warranty). Number is 1-800-292-9819.

Apparently they used for Vaultz storage boxes. It seems to be a common item. Here is a photo of a box with the key installed. I will post the link as well. You can make out the word WINIX on the key is you look carefully.

Goes off about 3 seconds after starting. Turned upside down and it ran without turning off. Already checked for blockages

When the light blinks and the unit shuts down it most likely needs to have its bag changed. You may find tha the bag is not up to the fill line, but is likely over a half. Our experience is to change the bag and the problem resolves.

Fan wont turn

I have taken one apart. reassembled and the fan would not turn, although there was power to the motor and it wanted to turn.
Sorry this is long...only this is about taking the motor itself apart..and I have yet to find a replacement motor.

1. Tried a little WD 40...(only on iron motor Housing!) nothing.
2. Took apart inside of motor. some rust inside..
3. carefully rubbed clean with WD 40..
4. leaned off WD 40 with contact cleaner...
5. Then worked little bearing loose on back side.
-Kind of turned upon reassembly..
6. Found some silicone High temp lubricant and took motor inside part again.
7. a very thin coat of lubricant inside rotor.
-Re assembled yet again..began to turn at high speed, kept running..24 hrs..
- It .finally turned at silent mode. and continues to work
This may be ar beyond what you want to do, however if all else fails...what else can you do? buy another one?
1. mark rotor holders with housing. (do not reverse.)
2. make sure you remove all lint, dust, etc inside.
3. the rotor bearing I had to work by hand again and again repeatedly syringing a little WD 40 at a time to until it turned easily.

My fresh air 2.1 won't go into away mode. I

Fresh Air purifiers are noted for two weak points. The display circuit board and the main circuit board. Call (336) 499-2505 and they will help you work through the problem. They give away information.

Machine is very noisy especially on silent mode.

Check the fan bearing. Lubricate with spray grease on the spindle but be prepared to replace if no better.

When I'm in my bathroom and showering the light turns red- what does this mean- Mold?. moisture?

The simple answer is moisture. If you have a bathroom exhaust fan, be sure to run it during and after you're showering. Typically, for a bathroom exhaust fan to reduce the moisture properly, it should remain ON for at least 15 minutes after your showering is complete,

Hope this helped to answer your question.

I just replaced my filter for the winix 5300 model and the replace filter indicator does not seem to turn off. Are there any solutions or procedures as to how i should go about this matter?

Remove the front cover and locate the FILTER RESET button below the DUST SENSOR level display indicator lights. Press and hold this button for 3 seconds until the unit beeps and the REPLACE FILTER indicator light goes out.
