    I recently changes the HEPA filter and the dust sensor will not turn off. It is in the red zone all of the time.

    Since moving to Arizona the Dust Sensor on my Envirosense 85500 is always on. I've tried vacuuming and cleaning the filters.

    I have the same problem. I tried cleaning the intake to the sensor with the head of a pin and got some lint out, but that didn't seem to make any difference.

Heat pure 1500 shuts down and displays 90.


over heating its self, it could be a blocked and not getting the right air flow or the sensor for the heat control is on its way out. check the filter if this model has one remove all dust from the intake, check that the fan is working, if the motor has been making any buzzing or funny sounds this can be the problem too. buzzing is the starter motor humming or clicking the motor is failing.

Still getting dust build up after installing an IQ air system


You will need to run an actualy HEPA filtered air filter as well. The air purifier will oxidize pollutants and will attract and trap some small dust, but most small units also require additional filtering to trap inert neutral charged dust.

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.

Dust filter has indicated extreme level of dust for several days making the fan stay on high. any way around having it professionally repaired?


- Remove the top two screws from the control panel.
- Remove the control panel. Be careful not to pull to hard as there is a ribbon cable taped into place.
- If the ribbon cable is taped, remove the tape and set down the panel as to not put weight on the ribbon cable.
- On the top left side of the unit (behind the dust sensor), there is a small box that is held in by a screw and plastic clips. Remove the screw and put tension on the clips so you can remove the box.
- there should be two holes in the box (one on each side), use a cotton swab and alcohol to clean outside and inside the box. I reached inside with the wet swab as far as it would reach.
- While you are in there, take some time to remove as much dust off of the front panel and anywhere else it may be.

That did the trick for me.

Will the Breeze AT help with the house hold dust kicked up by 2 St. Bernards etc. Also, can I clean the filter myself?


It should help to reduce the amount of air borne dust in your home. The filter can be cleaned either by vacuuming the lint screen or removing it and washing it with hot water and using a toothbrush to remove any dust buildup. Clean the purification plate with a 50/50 solution of water and amonia and a toothbrust to clean the grids. Allow both to dry completely before reinstalling. Make sure that the lint filter has the clip depressing the safety switch when reinstalling it. Hope this helps you.

Annoying ticking


My air purifier was doing the same thing. The ticking noise you are hearing is caused by dust build up on the ionizer pins. When the ionizer pins collect too much dust, they tend to start making the clicking/ticking sound caused by static electricity. The solution is simple. Take the filter out and clean it real good (follow directions on filter on how to clean). Now, with the filter out, if you look down inside the vent where the filter was, you'll see a white piece of plastic with nine holes in it that are about the size of a silver dollar. Directly in the center of each hole there will be something that looks like a needle, those are the ionizer pins and they will probably have dust built up on them. Next, with the filter out, blow out the air purifier with compressed air to clean all the dust off the ionizer pins. This should take care of the problem, it worked on mine.

Filter not clicking or emitting clean air smell and dust is flowing like filter is not energized


MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CELL(S) ARE CLEAN ... CLOSELY INSPECT TO SEE THAT THERE ARE NO BROKEN IONIZING WIRES (THE SMAAL STAINLESS-STEEL WIRES THAT ARE BETWEEN THE COLLECTOR PLATES). MAKE SURE POWER GOING INTO UNIT TO IS "OFF"!!! ... NOT JUST THE SWITCH ON THE UNIT. THEN TRY THE FOLLOWING: THIS AIR-CLEANER THAS A AIR-FLOW SENSOR THAT SOMETIMES GETS CLOGGED ... IT IS INSIDE THE TOP CONTROL PANEL. THERE SHOULD BE A DIAGRAM UNDER THE CONTROL BOX COVER PLATE TO ASSIST YOU LOCATING THAT SENSOR. MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAN. THE HIGH-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER BEING BAD USEUALLY WILL SMELL LIKE BURNT WIRING. AND WILL LOOK BURNT. MAKE SURE YOU SEE NO LOSE WIRES ... SOME TIMES THE SPARK-PLUG LOOKING WIRE GOING TO THE CELL(S) CAN BURN OFF ITS CONNECTOR. YOU CAN CHECK THE DOOR SAFETY SWITCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS MAKING CONTACT WHEN HANDLE IS PROPERLY CLOSED. GOOD LUCK ... HOPE YOU HERE THAT ZAPPING SOON ... BY THE WAY ... IF YOU GET A POWER LIT ON ... GIVE THE RETURN-AIR DUCT A SLIGHT BANG ... IF IT IS WORHING IT SHOULD SNAP CRACKLE AND POP FOR A FEW SECONDS. MAKE SURE YOU SEE NOTHING (HAIR?) LYING ACROSS THE PLATES OR IOMIZING WIRES ON EACH CELL IF YOURS HAS TWO. ELECTRIC AIR CLEANERS ARE ONLY GOOD WHEN THEY ARE KEPT CLEAN ... PET HAIR IS A CONSTANT MAITENCE PROBLEM AND CELLS SHOULD BE LEANED EVERY TWO WEEKS. FOR BEST PERFOMANCE.
