Power Off the unit then Press and HOLD the Off-Timer and Function buttons at the same time WHILE Powering the unit back On. The Replace Filter light will blink for 5 seconds than go out. Now you can release the the buttons.

Just to make sure everything is working fine power off and on the unit.

On a side note if you are a tight wad like me you may want to just smak the filter layers against the ground a few times to clean them and re-use them / make them last longer. When the replace fileter light comes on too often then it is time to replace the filter.

No worries ;o)

I have a Kenmore Progressive 295 air purifier. I have the model number for the large filter and the dimensions of the carbon filter but, because it is older, can't seem to locate comparable replacement...

Have you looked at Sears' online parts store? Type in the model number, and it will display available replacement parts.

You can also get there from the Sears home page:

Click "parts direct" at the top of the page.

ok i'm not finding that model anywhere in my system. but one way you can try is look in your manual under troubleshooting. if you have gone through all of the troubleshooting. the best thing that i can suggest is call the manufacturer. if your still under warranty they should be able to replace the unit foryou.

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.
