I just bought the same model and also have the smell. My previous one did not so I returned the first unit and the second units smells the same. I called Sears Customer Support and they told me that it is probably due to the factory smoke test they do on each unit. He said let it run for a few days and it should dissapate. I went a step further and am trying a new filter and if this works he said call the store and they will get me a new filter.

not likely the electrostatic air cleaners are discontinued for the most part because the really didnt do all they claimed. you can achieve much better air quality from a standard media air filter with a merv rating of 10 or better.

the manual says "adjust the filter change wheel to properly indicate when the next filter change is necessary"

Testimonial: "A++++ Solution "
Ammonia is a very strong agent & reacts with certain metallic compounds. No wonder the cleaning cell turned black. Educated guess, is you've ruined it. Cleaning in vinegar & hot water alone shouldn't have affected it like this. I would presume vinegar & ammonia mixed together would make a severe chemical reaction quite possibly harmful to you. I'm surprised you were able to put these 2 things together.
