Bought this product and it worked. Then three weeks later, it just stopped. I have power shower on its main power switch because it lights up. But nothing on the board comes on at all. I checked the fuse on an internal board and it's good. Now have it almost completely tore apart on my living room floor. Really need to get it going cuz I have little ones in my house. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Brenda

Actually, your purifier is working as it should. The black soot is due to the negatives ions which attach themselves to the smoke/dust/dirt particles in the room and make them drop to floor. If you don't smoke it won't be much of a problem. Some minor residue will be found in and around the unit but this comes about because the negative ions make dust and other particulates fall to the floor. A quick wipe or vacuum easily eliminates this problem. Besides, I would rather have them on the floor than floating around in the air, wouldn't you?
As I think about this more, I'd say that the switch you have would probably _not_ work. What you have is somewhat like a conventional 3-way switch. With the Alpine/Ecoquest switch, I suspect one terminal is for power to the internal light/LED, one is the load to the switch, and the third would be the ground for both.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know - I'd like to resolve this for you. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
i am a low voltage tech my wife told me that our 506840 air cleaner stopped working so being a tech geek i had to know why it just stopped working.when plugged in i heard a click telling me that the main board was getting power.opened the back end where power cord goes to put my meter and voltage was going to the main power coil. but the main board was oxidized. when my wife was cleaning the filters and might not have had the filters completely dried the water was dripping down to main board.the unit to main power source is not design very well where water from cleaning the filters can drip down to main power board.solution i am working on is trying to get a new board when we bought this it was $499.00
I was able to find the power-on switch to be defective. The switch is a momentary normally off switch constructed of two contacts on a printed circuit board. After five years, the surface of the switch contacts became oxidized and no longer made electrical continuity when depressed. I rewired the two wires to a new momentary switch and both my Ionic Air Cleaners are working again.
I have a Bionaire tower air filter model BAP1700 that I bought from Costco. The filter check LED came on recently after 5 months of use. After cleaning the Permatech filters, I tried every remedy on this website including following the instructions that say push power button for 2 secs. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a tiny hole on the control panel in front of clean filter LED; I pushed a paper clip pin into that hole, felt a click, held it down and 2 secs later, LED went out. Success!
