Hi there,

We purchased one of these in April 2009. Same issue appeared with us. Cleaned the cell and the "clean collector cell" still stayed illuminated. Checked the manual and the trouble shooting section stated to hold down the "air revitalizer button" till the "clean collector cell" light blinks three times. After this operation the light went out and all was fine!!!! Hopes this clears your issue!

Totally agree with above - they know about the problem and were quite helpful. I took mine in 3 months ago and the store replaced the power supply for free even though mine was two years old. Three months so far, the thing works A LOT better on odors and dust, and the red light does not go on for many days more.

the guy also cleaned the wires by rubbing some kind of white ceramic-looking abrasive stick on them. I can't find what out that stick is, because i would buy one. black stuff builds up on those wires and it is a cause of the light coming on.

Can you add a prefilter to an oreck truman cell to grab the larger dust particles and decrease the zapping?a humidifier in the room helps but when the furnace is going it can still be often.


it should have a prefilter already on it. they have a screen looking filter that goes on the front of the cell. If you don't have one you need to get one. You should also have a charcoal filter on the back side of the cell, if not then you'll need to get one of those also, the charcoal is for odors and not for filtering dust. Putting any other type of filter in front of the cell will just be turning this into a filter type cleaner and will be defeating the purpose of the reusable Trueman cell. You may as well just buy a different cleaner if you don't mind buying new filters instead of cleaning the cell. I would recommend cleaning the cell every 2 weeks to keep it working properly. This will also keep it from snapping, if yours is snapping it's already too dirty and needs to be cleaned, if it's snapping right after it's cleaned then you have a plate that is arcing in the Trueman Cell, I have posted a fix for the ProSheild Models to stop the cell plates from arcing.

Oreck XL air purifier (Tower Model)


Is this purifier wet at all, or been in any heavy areas of moisture. This purifier is very undependable with moisture. It may just have to dry out. Let me know if this solves your problem or we can explore further options.

Please keep me updated, thanks

Blinking 'Check Collector Cell' light


which model XL series do you have? There is obviously something shorted or arcing on the plates of the cell. look at the plates and see if they are laying flat and the wires are all still attached across the front of the cell. A loose, sagging, broken or bad contact on the end plates will cause the bad cell lights. clean off the area where the cell makes contact inside the unit. The metal strips that run across the ends of the cell make contact with the plates inside the cell and get their power from them, dirty contacts in any part of these contacts will cause the problem. Even a bad contact from the end cap to the plates inside the cell will cause this. Try wiggling the cell around, kind of push on it on edge to get the plates to shift slightly and clean the points where the plates touch the outer strips on the sides. Check for arcing with the lights turned off,

After cleaning my electronic filter, it runs well for about a day. Then, it begins to continuously arc until I wipe the wires clean. Again, no arc for awhile, then, continuous arcing. Is there something I...


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 however, and should be investigated as outlined below: Please note that the metal electronic cells may have some sharp edges; use care when handling the cells. Wear gloves to protect your hands from being cut if needed. 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. Do not vacuum the Pre-filter or Post filter this may damage it. Close the access door, and then turn on the Electronic Air Cleaner and the system fan. If the snapping continues with the cells removed, contact your heating and cooling contractor for service on the unit and turn off the Electronic Air Cleaner’s power. If snapping does not continue, make sure the electronic cells are clean, dry and properly installed. Inspect the electronic cells for bent collector plates, broken wires between the plates, dirt on the insulators, and damaged collector contact tabs located on the top of the cells. Make sure the pre-filters are in good condition and are in the cabinet slot farthest from the furnace (The order of the Electronic Air Cleaner Filters are from the return duct to the furnace is: Pre-Filter, electronic cell, and then Post filter, if your Electronic Air Cleaner has one). If the snapping persists and you are unable to locate any physical cause, please contact your heating and cooling contractor for service on the unit and turn off power to the Electronic Air Cleaner.

"Cleaning overdue" red blinking light after cleaning was done


Check that there are no fine pieces of lint that are bridging the plates or the ionizing wires, to ground.

Check the contact points of the collector cell and inside the unit.

The light is caused by a shorted collector cell and associated components.

Quadra - only red light goes on.


In addition to cleaning the plates on the cartridge, also turn the unit upside down then right side up a few times. There are 2 small wires inside the housing, and each has a ceramic ball on it that cleans the wire when the unit is inverted. Also, look through the vents to make sure the wires are not broken. If they are intact, they run in a straight line, almost the entire length of the unit.

If this does not help or the wire is broken, contact The Sharper Image. I believe this unit has a 5 year warranty. When mine failed, they exchanged it for free, even without a receipt.

Good luck!
