Question about Hamilton Beach TrueAir 04161 Air Purifier
I went on vacation to california early this month and while on leave my dad suggested i take his Hamilton True Air off his possession since my cat dander was really bothering me. So after careful and extreme packaging skills i had it flown back with me down in Key West. My problem now is it wont stop and i have a tough time believing the unit was damaged during the air travel. My dad said there was a trick to getting the unit to function again. I just don't know how or what to do to even know its working. Sad.. I really need this 150 dollar beast to operate cause i dont want to give up my lil furball. Thanks!
I'm not exactly sure what is the problem with your unit since in the title you say it won't start, but in the body you say it won't stop!
If it won't stop just unplug it. I'm assuming that's not your problem though.
If it won't start check the 2 safety interlocks. These automatically stop the unit when you take off either the front cover or the top cover. (This is so you don't stick your fingers in the fan while it is running and sue Hamilton Beach.)
On my unit the top one stopped working because the small plastic tab on the bottom side of the top cover broke off. This tab is designed to press into a switch inside the unit when the cover is properly installed. I over rode the switch by placing a small folded up piece of cardboard into the switch slot and taping it in place. This activates the switch full time. The only drawback is the unit will not shut off automatically when the top cover is removed. This could be a problem if you have an inquisitive toddler or child around the house. I only recommend this modification if you don't have small children around!
The front cover has a similar interlock and can be disabled in much the same way.
I hope this helps.
