Question about GE HEPA 106653 Air Purifier
The red indicator light is always on. Every time I change hepa and crbon filters the warning light still stqys on at the lowest level. Is the unit worn out? Is it costing more to opperate? It still takes a lot out of the air. We have a boiler system and no circulating air for filters, so I run about 5 Of these through the house
OMG, I am so glad I checked fixya out, as my filter has been on the yellow light, and I just figured the filters were bad, and changed them 2 times. They are very expensive.
I had no idea there was a reset button. I pushed it and nothing changed, but when I held it for a few seconds it went to green. Thanks all.

The previous post is RIGHT ON! I had to get a small screwdriver like for working on computers or sewing machines and push HARD to get the green light to come on. Maybe I broke something but, for now, all seems well.

This also is the case with the 106633 model and I must say, a pen or paper clip wasnt strong enough to depress the reset button but a small punch gave me enough leverage to do it. All is fine. My real complaint on this problem is that nowhere in the instructions is this said but is on a sticker inside the door at the bottom of the filter housing. Oh well, live and learn.

Hi Linda - there is a "reset" hole - you have to stick a pin or a paper clip in the hole when you change the HEPA filter - I just found this out myself! It does work. Mine didn't work right away, but it did end up resetting and went back to green after a few moments. I think this happened to me last time. The filters are really expensive, but you can get them at Walmart. If you need more information, email me at email@example.com and I'll tell you what model filter, etc.

The Intelli-Check™ Filter Monitors will indicate replacement of the pre-filter and the
HEPA filter. Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),
you may need to check and replace the filters more or less frequently.
To check Expected Filter Life Usage
When the unit is turned on, quickly press the appropriate filter monitor button. The
pre-filter light will flash up to 3 times and the HEPA filter light will flash up to 4 times,
depending upon how much expected filter life has been used.
1 flash = from new, up to 1/3 expected life used up
2 flashes = between 1/3 and 2/3 expected life used up
3 flashes = between 2/3 and all of expected life used up
Remains on = time to check/replace pre-filter
1 flash = from new, up to 1/4 expected life used up
2 flashes = between 1/4 and 1/2 expected life used up
3 flashes = between 1/2 and 3/4 expected life used up
4 flashes = between 3/4 and all of expected life used up
Remains on = time to check/replace HEPA filter
To RESET Filter Monitor
When the filter monitor light remains on, it is time to check/replace the filter and reset
the filter monitor, if needed. With the unit powered on, press and hold the appropriate
filter monitor button down for approximately 5 seconds until the light turns off.
