Use some keyboard cleaner ( turn can upside down and spray liquid where insulators emerge from plastic and connect with thin wire) spray both sides top and bottom of the insulators this should remove contaminants and prevent the power from following the contaminantion and short across the small air gap and "crackle"
you could also take the purifier apart and clean by hand

Sounds like the power is arcing, Probably broken porcelain insulators. I wouldn't recommend trying to use it, there is some really high voltage in there. Replace it or send it out for repair.

Changed filter and pre filter both lights continue to blink, not resetting


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Make sure that the new filters you installed are undamaged and correctly seated in it's assembly. When resetting the unit, unit must be powered on then press and hold the appropriate filter indicator button for approximately 10 seconds until the light turns off. If nothings happens, unplugged the unit from the power for about a minute and then try to reset the unit. If all else fails, I would suggest to contact Honeywell for more assistance.

It keeps making a static sound. and it lights up with the sound because there is a small shock that happens ever 10 seconds in the back above the filter


That happens when the electrostatic grid needs to be cleaned. There should be instruction for cleaning the electrostatic grid in the owner's manual.

My Breeze starts but the fan does not turn. All lights are on and there is a humming sound. Does the fan need replacing or can lubrication help. The previous owner (ex-wife) put it in storage after the...


Lubrication should do the trick. Take the grid off the front of the machine, then pull the fan blades off of the shaft (be careful, pull firmly straight off). Use a thin household oil ( 3in1, sewing machine, hair clipper, etc.) and squeeze a small amount down the shaft. Turn it by hand to work the oil down. You should be able to feel it begin to turn easier. You can try turning on the machine without the front grid and fan, and just watch to see if the shaft turns. If it doesn't, repeat the process. If this doesn't help, you can contact us a fredandmb@frontier.com.

My Flair smells like it is burning and the plates are making a loud sparking sound


What's burning is probably your high voltage transformer. When your glass plates get a crack in them, they will spark. You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

My Ionic Pro Turbo air purifier is blowing air in intervals of 30 seconds, blows for 30 seconds then stops for 10 sec. then repeats. Is this normal or do I have a defective unit? Thanks, Jerry


Have you cleaned the unit good and made sure that there is nothing crossing the grid wires? It sounds as if it is cutting off and resetting for some reason. Mine runs continuously. I take an air compressor and blow mine out every time I clean it. Also, on some models, you have to hold the on button down for several seconds to reset it after cleaning. Hope this helps.

Smell in the air


If the smell is not electrical as JEShandyman was asking, but rather from something trapped in the lint filter you could try putting the unit under a box and put it on sanitize. Let it run for 30-60 minutes and see if that cleared up the problem. Washing and drying the filter first is a good idea.

You should never get a head ache from the smell the machine produces. The fresh air the machine produces reacts with the odors and contaminants in the environment and that can potentially create other smells. If that happens you should scale the machine back to a lower setting and take it very slowly and ramp it up day by day. This is something you should have been told by the person who sold you the machine to begin with.

I hope this helps.

Hi jackkikay,

A faint buzzing sound is normal - - that's the high-voltage plasma discharge simulating lightning in a thunderstorm. If the room is dark you should be able to see a faint bluish-purple glow of the metal grid on the plate(s) inside. This should somewhat louder as you increase the setting.

It should not really be so loud that is stands out in the background of normal noises (refrigerator running for example). If the buzz is loud - - like something is shorting-out internally (loud crackling sound), that would signal a different problem - - I'd need more details about what you're observing. Approximate purchase day, specific model, number of plates, general condition of the interior would all be helpful if you deem the buzz to be too loud for normal operation.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon
