Re: Annoying ticking

My air purifier was doing the same thing. The ticking noise you are hearing is caused by dust build up on the ionizer pins. When the ionizer pins collect too much dust, they tend to start making the clicking/ticking sound caused by static electricity. The solution is simple. Take the filter out and clean it real good (follow directions on filter on how to clean). Now, with the filter out, if you look down inside the vent where the filter was, you'll see a white piece of plastic with nine holes in it that are about the size of a silver dollar. Directly in the center of each hole there will be something that looks like a needle, those are the ionizer pins and they will probably have dust built up on them. Next, with the filter out, blow out the air purifier with compressed air to clean all the dust off the ionizer pins. This should take care of the problem, it worked on mine.

I am not sure when or how to change the filter for my ecoquest air purifier. I moved into a house with brand new carpets, floors, paint etc. and then had a flood. I was running the purifier fairly...

If you have a HEPA filter, it may need cleaning. Every month at least. If you figured you don't NEED one because of the machines abilities to knock down particulates, you're most likely right. HEPA "filters" tend to grow their OWN nasties after a short time with ANY moisture around at all. The plate may have VOC's crystallizing on the plate. Check the lint screen and if it doesn't smell bad(musty) and you can see light thru it when you hold it up to a light, it's probably only needing a vacuuming. Some people rinse them in warm soapy water. Make sure it's DRY before putting it back in.

All of the lights on the control panel are flashing simutanously and constant. The air cleaner is not working. I just had it tuned up about a month or so ago. Whats happening

Here's something that has worked in the past. Turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Once it's plugged back in turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally do.I f everything now functions as it should, the unit reset itself.

If that doesn't solve the problem contact the Oreck Service Dept that did the tuneup for you.

Just received a new air purifier, and was quite surprised to see big pieces of styrofoam in the fan/air output first we thought it must be packing materials. My question is: I thought that...

That is packing materials. It was placed there to protect the vent louvers on the front from breaking during shipping. Apparently, some of them chipped or broke and found their way into the louver section. Simply clean them out. Small pieces can be sucked out with a vacuum that has a hose and crevice tool attachment.

Can purifer work without the ozone card working

It will operate without a purification plate, as long as you are running in RCI mode or normal mode. If you normally run the purifier with some ozone output, then you will need a purification plate. Hope this helps you.

The Honeywell electronic air cleaner constantly "snaps" even though it is clean. I have inspected the wires and fins, clean and spaced properly. Any suggestions?

It is normal to hear occasional snapping from your Electronic Air Cleaner. This occurs when larger particles are caught by the ionizer wires. Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both the cell and check clean the bottom portion by using a vacuum cleaner attachment. If the snapping continues with the cells remove contact your contractor.
