Question about Air Purifiers

2 Answers

I have an air purifier model Brookstone 561274. We recently cleaned the filter and now there is a high pitched hum that accompanies the fan when turned on. The filter is completely dry but we cannot figure out why there is a high pitch ringing when it is on. Any ideas?

    How old is this unit and or the filter, washing it may not do the job, a new one maybe needed if you have a hole in it - it will pick up air and that can sound like a ring. be sure that cover is on properly -

    I don't see these listed on eBay by anyone right now (July 2012, 222 days later) and do not know how to contact Lynne. I need one of the wires. I hope Lynne sees this and posts her eBay ID so that I can contact her. -- Dan

On/off switch stuck Brookstone air filter 561274, can't open top to get to switch


there are two very small screws just above the on/off switch. Once you unscrew those two, you can use a knife (carefully) to lift the on/off panel out of the air filter. I just did this. My problem is now that I don't understand how the on/off button is supposed to work at all.. there was no spring or anything I can see that could have pushed the on/off button back up. I am considering just leaving the actual button out and pushing the microswitch directly. Looks like bad engineering to me.

Try leaving it unplugged for a while to reset it.

Brookstone Pure Ion


We had a problem with ours, it kept telling us the filter needed cleaning, though it had just been done and was actually fine. It would sound a high pitched alarm and "freak out" on us.
We found using a shop vac and cleaning it out all (while unplugged, of course) inside where there are intakes and general insides was greatly helpful. It was making a crackling noise as well, quite often.
We have asthma and allergies in the household and rely on this to help our family, it's a wonderful thing to own, we love it.
But, this one problem had us stumped. Do try to use a powerful vacuum and really get inside. We have cats and apparently cat hair as well as household dust was clogging it. You obviously need to do more than clean the filters, themselves, from time to time.

Where can I but the charcoal filters for my Pure-Ion air purifier?


If you go to this website, you will see that this model has a washable filter: http://www.brookstone.com/sl/product/65099-pure-ion-pro-air-cleaner.html
If you still have the literature that came with the purifier, contact their support number if your unit has a charcoal filter.

I need to buy one filter


we are also expierencing the same crackling problem. This machine is only a year old.....

anyone find anyway to resolve the crackling? I have not contacted Brookstone, but it doesn't sound too promising anyway.

These air purifiers are not cheap and they should back up their products.

Help! My air ilter quit!


I bought one a year ago and never thought it work well in cleaning the air. I get more dust on my counters than collects in the pure-ion. I recently got a letter from an attorney saying they are settling a class action suit on these purifiers because the are not effective. I called brookstone and they said they will refund my money because of the law suit. Good luck.
