First off does the light come on at all? when the switch is moved to the High Medium or low setting do you see a red light or a green light on the right side of the unit? if there is no light at all, then there is either no power and you have a bad cord or a bad outlet. The only other thing could be the switch that needs to be tripped in order to let the unit run, that switch is closed by the front cover locking in place. that switch could be bad or your cover may have the tip of the pin that pushes the switch closed broken off or deformed and not pushing down enough to close the switch. try pushing a screwdriver down on the switch and see if it comes on. There's nothing that can shock you if you push on that switch, the power wires are concealed inside a plastic covered area that the switch slides into. If you close the switch and it doesn't come on the check the power cord or the wall socket for power. See if the cord has any unusual looking spots or lumps, stretching, cuts or anything that looks suspicious.

How do you reset the filter reminder warning light?


Filter Replacement
Filter Replacement Indicator:
Your Defender® is equipped with a Filter Replacement Indicator located on the front
panel. Anytime this red indicator flashes, it is recommended that you call your authorized
FILTERQUEEN® Distributor to order a replacement filter. Anytime this red indicator stops
flashing and remains solidly illuminated, it is recommended that you change your filter. To
receive full benefit from your Defender® and to extend your warranty, it is strongly
recommended that you follow the filter replacement schedule suggested above. Under higher
pollution levels, your filters will need to be replaced more frequently.
The Filter Replacement Indicator is operated by filter time in use and is controlled by an
onboard timer. After 11 months of time in use of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge, the Filter
Replacement Indicator will begin to flash. It will continue to flash until the you reach 12
months of time in use, at which time the Filter Replacement Indicator will stop flashing
and remain solidly illuminated.
After replacement of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge, you must reset the Filter
Replacement Indicator's timer. When the timer has been properly reset, the Filter
Replacement Indicator will turn off.
Resetting the Filter Replacement Indicator Timer:
After replacement of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge per the instructions found on page 7, the
Filter Replacement Indicator's timer can be reset by performing the following sequence of
steps:
1 Plug unit into outlet.
2 Press power On/Off switch to the On ("I") position.
3 Allow unit to start running at low speed.
4 PRESS and HOLD both the Up and Down arrow buttons until the Filter
Replacement Indicator starts to blink.
5 Release both the Up and Down arrow buttons.
6 While the Filter Replacement Indicator is still flashing*, again PRESS and
HOLD both the Up and Down arrow buttons until the Filter Replacement
Indicator turns off.
If the steps above have been performed properly, the Filter Replacement Indicator will
turn off and not flash again for 11 months. If the Filter Replacement Indicator remains
on, repeat the steps again.
*Note that in step 6 above, the Filter Replacement Indicator MUST still be flashing when
the buttons are pressed the second time. The Filter Replacement Indicator will continue
to flash for approximately 3 seconds after the buttons are released as required in step 5 above.
Note: Under higher pollution levels, your filters will need to be replaced more frequently.
Note: To order replacement filters, call your authorized FILTERQUEEN® Distributor, or call
1-440-846-7800 for the Distributor nearest you.

Red Light indicator on


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!
