Question about Brookstone Pure-Ion (506840) Air Purifier

2 Answers

Clicking is likely sparking/arcing rather than something mechanic

I have a similar issue, but the clicking is absolutely sparking (I can see it through the vent opening in the top). The filers have been vacuumed, washed, dried (no doubt they are dry), and the problem persist. It suns for a while, sparking starts almost immediately, finally shuts down.

Sparking is what it does; Google the words ionizer purifier sparking and you will be let to explanations on how they use sparking to clean. Honeywell has been using that Technology for decades. Don't worry sparking in the unit is OK

I have same issue. I understand the "sparking" is ok, but my unit doesnt "spark". The fans run, and the unit makes two different clicking noises; one after the next (clicks are apprx 2 seconds apart and it happens every minute and a half or so). It no longer collects dust frim the air, and it no longer puts out the clean "ionic" air smell.

Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier


If yours is like mine you need to set the cover on top about 2/3 of the way back and then slide it, if you do not put it there and attempt to slide it it will not work. Play with it a little and it should work for you. Also if you took out some of the filers you can install them upside down and that also will prevent the top from sliding on. Good luck!

Similar to your Kenmore upright is the canister. Here is a video clip by another with similar issue of trying to open the darn thing up. I hope this gets you closer to solving your problem with the vacuum. If not with a few Kenmore vacuum "search" in youtube I think you will find what you need.

The problem is too much gas as opposed to not enough air. It is still running rich. Did you take into account the elevation of the location your furnace is installed at. The higher above sea level the less air that you have to aid in cumbustion. The condensation is from excess gas being cold and causing water to accumulate. Can you run it like this? Yes but it will cause issues with soot and carbon deposits. It will also cost you more money in the long run.

1 thinks its wet , 1 sparks and snaps.


I took the blades and a washrag in the shower with me and cleaned them. Then I put them in front of the air vent for 8-10 hours. Then I put them back in the unit. Sparking and snapping could be from dirt moving through the unit.

How do i replace the release lever on a hoover windtunnel


This is definitely one of those "easy when you know how" things. No screws or plates or anything to remove. It is a case of getting the old one out and slipping in the new part:

The part clips in so you need to unclip the old (broken) one to get it out.

You need a small flat head screw driver to unclip the old one. You come into the opening via the UNDERSIDE of the vac as in pic one. You will release it and pull the old part out via the top side.

Below is a pic of the removed (broken) part. The arrows show the two round nipple like ends and these are what you need to release using the screw driving (and then pulling the part out the top).

Once you have the old part out the new one is slid in via the TOP of vacuum and clicks into place

This next pic gives you an idea of what you are trying to achieve.
The RED arrows are the new part in place. The YELLOW arrow shows what the "two round nipples" click into.

did you ever figure out the clicking noise problem?
mine stared doing the same darn thing after I whashed the filters and inserted them into the units, I used the builted in drying setting, and thats when the problem started. I know you are not supposed to run the unit with a wet filter, thats why I put it on the dry mode first. I think I am just going to return them back to Brookstone.

Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both electronic cells. Make sure that there is no hair, dirt, sand or any debris on the bottom inside the Electronic air cleaner. If there is, remove what you can by hand. If a lot of debris is left in bottom of the Air Cleaner, you may want to use a vacuum attachment to see if you can vacuum up what you can.
