Question about Aprilaire 5000 Air Purifier

Open Question

My Aprilaire 5000 doesn't filter properly. Dust

My Aprilaire 5000 doesn't filter properly. Dust still accumulates around the house, and the filter doesn't get that dirty. The green light comes on when furnace blower comes on, but it seems like the electrostatic generator doesn't generate the charge needed to attract the dust to the filter.

There were some problems where people used glas-fiber-islations as a filter (it could be yellow or white), the problem generated because air filters and isolations camed in more or less same packageing (people didn't know, or couldn't know the diference) if u rub the new filter and it starts hurting or burning finger's you have isolation, if not there could be a problem with chemicals that where in filter fiber's, you can leave it on sun for a few hour's and bring it back in
this is the best i can do to help you

the foam cover filters the large dust particles and can be washed. It serves to prolong the life of the expensive hepa filter element. Leave it on.

Nothing collecting on strips


Larry, since this unit is electrostatic, you may or may not hear little crackles of sparks when it is operational. You should, however, smell a very faint odor of ozone when it is running properly. If you do not hear any sounds from the electrical plates and the air coming out of the unit does not have a little different smell than the air in the rest of the room, then the unit is not functioning properly. In my research of these units, I did see references to replacing the metal fins being required as some claimed they were an consumable element to the purifier and needed periodic replacement to function properly. However, nothing in the owner's manual says they are. It simply says to carefully clean them to avoid damaging the fins or plastic insulation on them.

Other factors to check include:
Making sure the unit has at least 12" of open space behind it.
Making sure there is 36" of open space in front of it.
Give time for dust to accumulate. The manual states that you should check the collection fins after a couple of days to see how much dust has accumulated since cleaning schedules will vary greatly depending on how dusty your home is. Dust collection may take days to start to appear.
Make sure the DRYING CYCLE light is not on when the unit is operating. This protection system is designed to remove electrical power from the fins if humidity is detected (which can easily be the case since you are advised to wash the fins in water to clean them).

If the DRYING CYCLE light is not on, you have plenty of air space around the unit, and after days you still do not see anything on the fins, then chances are the issue is internal and will require repair or replacement of parts. Be advised that this unit is no longer made and has no manufacturer supported service or parts availability. Further diagnosis and repair could quickly get costly and in most cases, you are probably better off replacing the unit.

My purifier says to "perform


Krowan - You will need to remove and clean th efiler on the back, remove and clean the ceramic or glass plaques, as well as clean any dust accumulation inside the uint itself. This cam be accomplished by using canne compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). Just be sure not to blow dust in your eyes.

The filter you can back flush at the kitchen sink, using warm rater. Allow it to thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it. Th e plaques can be cleaned using unscented ammonia and and old tooth brush. Rinse the thoroughly, place between 2 towel to dry completely, before reinstalling them.

That's about all you need to do. Make sure you reinstall the parts properly and that the filer is triggering the safety device.

To further help you, here's a link to the Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference.

Hope this helped you.

I just replaced my filter for the winix 5300 model and the replace filter indicator does not seem to turn off. Are there any solutions or procedures as to how i should go about this matter?


Remove the front cover and locate the FILTER RESET button below the DUST SENSOR level display indicator lights. Press and hold this button for 3 seconds until the unit beeps and the REPLACE FILTER indicator light goes out.

I just bought the purepro 200. I ran it for about 7 hours in a normal house setting and it turned off and the cleaning light came on.I have unplugged it and tried it again. This time it went off in 10...


John, when the clean filter light came on, did you clean the filter? Or just unplugged it and tried again?
In 7 hours, the unit probably picked up a lot of dust, that's why the clean filter light came on. Try cleaning the filter( if you haven't already) and that may solve your problem. When you reinstall the filter, be sure that it is seated properly, so the the safety trigger switch is activated.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Clean fan area


NOTE:It is easier to remove the motor when the upper housing is still sitting on top of the lower housing unit.
  1. Turn the power off by unplugging the unit.
  2. Next to the speed directions buttons there are thumb tabs. Press the thumb tabs so that they pop up and unlock the upper housing flaps. a tumb tab on
  3. The four flaps should then drop down like the peddles of a flower.
  4. Grab the center of the motor and lift straight up, be careful when pulling the power chord.
  5. The motor, fan and gear assembly should not be seperated from the rest of the unit.
This will let you clean with vinegar and water.

Great product. Germany design at its best

Brookstone pure ion filters


You need to reset it, unplug the unit and take out both filters. Then, plug it back and and simultaneously and firmly slam both filters into the back of it at the same time. Before putting both filters back inside the until, also vacuum out the insides in case there is hair/dust inside of it that has accumulated.
Also, make sure your filters are 100% dry before every putting them back inside the unit.
Good luck!
