Question about Honeywell (F50F1073) Air Purifier

1 Answer

Honeywell F50A does not clean well

The air cleaner was previously installed in the house when we moved in. The cells appear clean, the indicator light is on, the test button produces a sparking noise and I've ohmed out the cells, no shorts present. But after months of use minimal dust seems to be picked up by the collector plates. Any input?
I don't have a high voltage meter to measure the power supply output but if the test button produces a zap does that indicate the voltage is high enough

Sounds like it is working. You could replace the cells and prefilters with a disposable box filter that fits.

Have honeywell air geius 5 can't reset filter lights


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.

My Honeywell Type No. F50A Electronic Air Cleaner arced continuously even though I had cleaned it a few days prior. I shut the unit off and removed the air cleaner cells. Is it safe to run the furnace...


Yes you can run the furnace with out the electronic air cleaner for awhile.... It you are in a very dusty conditions than I would not run it very long a day or two....because you will not have any protection for dirty getting stuck on the evaporator coil or if you have a 90% gas furnace the secondary heat exchanger...and restricting air flow.... You can put in a 1" pleated air filter the same size as the total of the two cells in place of the cells till you can get the electronic working..... Sounds like either something big is caught across the cell plate or they are still wet and have not dryed out completely. Hope this helps.

Light not on in front of filter . Its a Honeywell Electronic air cleaner and I cant tell if its working because light is off.


Neon light on air cleaner does not come on
1. Make sure the furnace or air conditioner fan is running.
2. Make sure the access door is firmly closed.
3. Make sure the On-Off switch is in the On position.
4. On models without the Solid State Performance Indicator, if the electronic cell(s)
are wet, check again in two to three hours.

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.

I cleaned the cells on my Honeywell electronic air cleaner and now it won't run. The CHECK led is lit. Got any ideas?


Make sure the furnace or air conditioner blower is running.

Make sure the access door is firmly closed and latched. If door is not closed properly, an interlock keeps the air cleaner off.

I have a HoneyWell F300E electronic air cleaner, installed on a furnace in a house I just bought. I have never owned one of these things before. The filter arcs and makes sparking noises constantly,...


Continuous snapping is not normal .Remove both electronic cells. Make sure that there is no hair, dirt, sand or any debris on the bottom inside the Electronic air cleaner. If there is, remove what you can by hand. If a lot of debris is left in bottom of the Air Cleaner, you may want to use a vacuum attachment to see if you can vacuum up what you can.

F50 air cleaner cells inoperative


Check for any of the metal layers in the cell to be touching or too close together. These units are very expensive to repair and to be honest the best option is to find a disposable box filter that will fill the hole.

Electronic Air Cleaner problem


The presence of “white dust” is actually an indicator that your Electronic Air Cleaner is working properly. The Electronic Air Cleaner can only filter the particles that are passing through your system’s duct work. The staining particulate is generally lighter, and more able to be drawn through the return registers in your home, leaving the heavier, non-staining particulate behind. This heavier, non-staining particulate settles out of the air and is left behind on your furniture: because it is more visible, it may appear as though there is actually more dust in your home than there was prior to installing the air cleaner. To ensure that more particulate is able to reach the Electronic Air Cleaner to be filtered, you should make sure that the return registers are clean and not blocked by furniture.

Honeywell F 300 electronic air purifier


there's usually a troubleshooting guide stuck on the inside of the door.  it suggests a systematic flowchart for diagnosing the problem.
you should be able to isolate it to either the power supply (means replacement), or one of the cells.
on mine, one of the many little vanes got a bent during cleaning, and was shorting out.  (it doesn't take much.)  a quick visual and very little judiciously applied force straightened it out and fixed the problem.
i've also found that the unit will crackle a lot after a cleaning because of drops of water remaining in the cells, so i usually reassemble everything, but leave the unit turned off for an hour or two, which lets the blower on the furnace dry the cells for me.
