Cell is dirty, or you have a broken wire in the cell.

Can somebody help fix the problem I'm having with my Honeywell air purifier....when I press power button it won't work all I see is red light any button I press red it wont do anything....pls!!!!.....

I have the same unit.
Have you cleaned out the removable filters?
also the red light at the bottom indicates the time to clean the filters.
to reset it, use a paper clip. The red light on the bottom right is the filter indicator light, what looks like it should be a light beside that filter light, is actually a reset button, just poke it with a paper clip for a few seconds to reset. The bottom red light goes out

Red light stays on continually.

Same problem : after cleaning thoroughly inside by removing the Front & Rear Plastic grid and the stainless blades, I also cleaned the 2 wires (very softly and carrefully, not to break them), but the Red light goes on after only few minutes :

Here is my last Solution :
1 - Turn on (Low position) although the Red ligt is on
2 - Release the Rear plastic Grid (or Front plastic grid, or both of them) : That stop the unit automatically
3 - Replace it and make sur it's well locked : the unit turns on automatically.

After that, my unit works well, no mor Red light.

But my husband will see if he can by pass the Cleaning detector, so we will not have this stupid Red light on anymore !

Good luck.

The red cleaning light is staying on after I have cleaned it several times

I have had to hit the power button several times in a row to get the red cleaning light off till the other light went blue. Thats what I did, Did you just clean the blades? there is another part that cleans the wires too, Its like a plunger.

Red Light indicator on

I have a Bionaire tower air filter model BAP1700 that I bought from Costco. The filter check LED came on recently after 5 months of use. After cleaning the Permatech filters, I tried every remedy on this website including following the instructions that say push power button for 2 secs. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a tiny hole on the control panel in front of clean filter LED; I pushed a paper clip pin into that hole, felt a click, held it down and 2 secs later, LED went out. Success!

Red Light on front of Filter Queen Defender

When the red light is blinking, press and hold both up and down arrows until the red light blinks RAPIDLY, release both for a second or two, and press and hold both again until it stops blinking. It cured my problem.
