Re: hunter 730 carbon pre-filter replacement orange light

Filter lights on your Air Purifier One of the best things about your IQAir Air Purifier is that it has warning lights to tell you when to change the prefilter, gas or hepa filters. Of course how long they last depends on your pattern of usage. For the initial 80% of the filter life the control panel will display a green light next to the corresponding filter on the outline of the unit. When the orange light goes on it does not mean that the filter needs to be replaced immediately but that there is 20% of useful life left. IQAir gives you plenty of time and the machine will tell you how many hours you have left. Once the number of hours gets to within a few hours remaining the orange light will then change to red. It is at this time you should change the filter. If you forget to change it and there are no hours left the hours will go into the negative displaying how many hours you have gone over and the red light will change to a flashing red light.

Just in case you have lost the manual like one of our customers, this is how you reset the filter lights:
1. Press the menu button ( 7 times) until you get to where the display says new filter.
2. Press the enter button and hold it down for 3 seconds and a number 1 will be flashing after the words new filter on the display. This flashing number is so you can enter which filter you have changed. Filter number 1 is the pre-filter, filter number 2 is the V-5 gas filter, and filter number 3 is the Hepa filter.
3. You change the number for the filter by pressing the up arrow button.
4. Once you reach the correct filter number you press the enter button and the control panel will display a question mark after the words new filter on the display. Below this it will say, E = Yes M = Cancel. If you wish to cancel the entry so it does not reset a new filter life, simply press the Menu button.
5. If you want it to reset the filter life for the changed filter, simply press the Enter button. Once this is done, the filter light will change back to the green light, which will show the filter has been changed. If you go to the remaining filter life on the control panel for the filter number you just changed, you will now see the remaining life of the filter in hours has been reset.

    Fan on air cleaner blows out top but does not suck

    If air is blowing out - it most assuredly is getting in. The area of the intake make be large enough for you to perceive air being sucked in.
    Make sure ALL filters are clean. Remove and replace disposable filters or wash and replace permanent filters. Do this for pre-filters too. Then, try again.

    I want to change filters. please help

    Hi and welcome to DixYa, I am Kelly

    The only two parts requiring any service are the activated carbon pre-filter and the HEPA filter. No tools are needed. To change either filter, disassemble the unit as shown.
    1. Loosen the carrying handle by turning it counterclockwise and lift filter cage cover from unit.
    2. Lift HEPA filter and activated carbon pre-filter from the base.
    3. Remove the fasteners from the activated carbon pre-filter and remove it from the HEPA filter cartridge.
    4. Replace filter(s) as needed, and discard used filters.
    5. Wrap the activated carbon pre-filter around the HEPA filter cartridge and secure it with the fasteners provided

    I had a honeywell hepa air purifier 50250 given to me as a gift with no owners manual! Is there somewhere I can get one? also, there is buttons on the top, one saying check filter and the other saying pre...

    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.
    Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours

    How to change the flter

    Turn off the unit and unplug it. Turn the air purifier on it's side and unscrew the locking mechanism (turn counter-clockwise) on the base of the unit. Remove the base assembly from the unit. Remove the filter assembly and find the seam of the pre-filter. Carefully separate the fastener and then remove the pre-filter from the HEPA filter.

    Discard the filter(s) being replaced. Then remove the new filter from the packaging and discard the packaging and plastic. Carefully wrap the pre-filter around the HEPA filter so that the ends meet. Fasten the ends together with the fastener.

    Place the filter assembly in the air purifier and reattach the base. Then tighten the locking mechanism. Turn the unit right side up, plug it in and turn it on.

    I hope this helps.

    Where and how can I order new filters.

    You never need to ORDER new filters for your SUN AIRE purifier unit. Our pre-filter is LIFETIME/WASHABLE 0.5 micron 2-stage electro-static and NEVER needs replacement. Our pre-filter saves you about $100-200 per year in expensive replacement HEPA/charcoal/carbon filters on other units. Made in America and built to last you a lifetime- SUN AIRE purifiers!
