Ozone is not good for you. If you can smell it, it is set too high. Look at it in dark room and check for blue orange glow inside the fan louvers. If you see the glow, it is working

When I turn my brand new air purifier on on it smells like its burning or going to catch on fire is it supposed to?


That unit is a very heavy duty machine that uses ionization to clean air. There is a high voltage power supply that is used to generate ions. The unit can release ozone and that substance has a definite smell to it. If you have ever been near a copy machine or an electric motor that sparks, you would smell ozone. The concern is whether or not it is ozone. Ozone is regulated by the manufacturers to be held at a permissible level because at high concentrations it is an irritant and can cause respiratory issues by itself. The power unit for that air cleaner is on the top near the back and you can run the machine for a while to see if that area gets hot. That would be a bad sign. All the documentation is here: http://electronicaircleaners.com/f50f1032parts.aspx But if you don't trust the unit, take it or send it back.

How do I read the graduations on the purifier control & what do the 1 or 2 red plate settings tell me?


The graduations are incremental for your ozone output for the purifier control. Generally, the machine can put out enough ozone to cover 3000 sq ft. (when the control is moved all the way to the right, about 5 o'clock.) Half way should be about 1500 sq ft or 12 o'clock. For general air cleansing, you should set the purifier control to produce enough ozone so you smell it when walking into the room (after home) for about 30 seconds. The ozone smell should disappear after that. If it lingers, you've got it set too high. For more severe odor control you can set it higher but remember that some of us are more sensitive to the odor no matter what the setting. It may need some adjustment based on your individual preferences.

I'm confused about the 'red plates' as you mentioned. The original machine comes w/ 2 ozone plates (made of glass) and doesn't produce ozone when one of the plates is removed. I'm guessing that the lines may tell you when you're engaging both plates to work, i.e. more ozone being produced & blown into the room or less only calling on one plate to produce ozone. If you send me a close up pic of the control panel I may be able to tell you more.

I no longer smell the ozone smell that i used too.


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.

No ozone smell


This generally indicates that the plate is cracked or not making proper contact. Pull the plate and look very closely as even a tiny microscopic crack anywhere on the plate will produce these results.

When ionizer is on even


Hi willy,

The ionizer itself shouldn't smell. I wonder if you're smelling O3 (aka ozone or activated oxygen), or if there's a short-circuit of some kind that is causing electrical components to overheat/burn. Burning electronics and singed hair smell more alike than ozone (which isn't the same as ionization, incidentally.

Write back with more details if you can, preferably with any details about your observations.

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

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon
