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.

How do I care for my charcoal filter? When do I need to change from normal to auto and what does that mean?


Charcoal filter can be brushed off with a soft brush or vacuumed. Soaking or using cleaner of any kind is not recommended. Order a new one from the company when it gets too dusty to clean out, when it's bent, when it looks "thinner" or has empty spots, or when you've used it for 2 or 3 years. The carbon helps absorb odors, and gets "used up" after time.
I need the name/model of the machine to tell you what normal/auto means. In any case, daily operation should be in the "normal" setting.

Where can I but the charcoal filters for my Pure-Ion air purifier?


If you go to this website, you will see that this model has a washable filter: http://www.brookstone.com/sl/product/65099-pure-ion-pro-air-cleaner.html
If you still have the literature that came with the purifier, contact their support number if your unit has a charcoal filter.

I was considering Biozone for restrooms etc and I assumed,as your info.says that it would be odour free?Some I have seen are not odour free.Is it just a uv lamp system or is there some form of ozone...


the UV lamp does produce some ozone .. this one specifies .04 ppm .. thats not very much but might be detectable as a slight fresh air odor .. some other types use electrostatic filtering and some even have strong ozone generators .. ozone does kill bacteria, fungus and such and will freshen the air removing many odors but is not considered healthy in large or concentrated amounts or for prolonged periods .. the UV lamp will also kill bacteria and fungus without producing so much ozone.

Purifying Method: Photoplasma, UV, ions, and ozone.

How do I clean the Oreck Air 7


Hi There,

Here's how you can clean the machine, and I have copied the link to the owners manual below for your convenience.

Cleaning
The Cabinet
You can clean the air purifier cabinet with mild, non-abrasive cleanser and a
soft cloth. IMPORTANT: Unplug the unit from its electrical power source.
Do not spray cleansers or furniture polish into the louver or grill areas.

Collector Cell
Indicator light is green under normal operation and flashes red
when the cell requires cleaning. To clean, proceed as follows:
The red "WASH CELL" light will flash or illuminate when it is
time to clean your cell. However, it is recommended that every four to
eight weeks or if snapping sounds become frequent, clean your
electronic air purifier. Your electronic air purifier is still filtering the air
when the red light illuminates. Cleaning your electronic air purifier is a
snap too... and a must for efficient operation.
1. Turn the unit off and unplug it from the electric power source. If wall
mounted, remove unit from wall.
2. Remove front grill by unscrewing the retainer screw under the grill on
the cabinet bottom. (fig. 1)
3251a7e.jpg
3. Pull the cell out of the cabinet by using the two small handles on the
front of the cell. (fig. 2)

4. Snap off the charcoal odor absorber from the back of the cell. Change
as necessary for continued odor removal. (fig. 3)
5. Slide off pre-filter. This can be cleaned with the cell and reused. (fig. 4)
NOTE: Handle the electronic cell with care. Damaged metal plates
and/or broken wires will cause the air purifier to malfunction. (Do
not wash charcoal odor absorber; it is disposable.)
Cleaning with Assail-A-Cell® Cell Cleaner:
6. Using Assail-A-Cell® Cleaner, thoroughly saturate the cell and prefilter.
Be sure to spray between each cell plate and cover every
surface. Allow product to soak for a few minutes, not allowing it to dry.
Rinse thoroughly with water. For extremely heavy deposits, repeat the
process.
IMPORTANT: Dry the collection cell thoroughly outside of the
air purifier before reinstalling it into the air purifier. Ensure
that all areas including corners and areas that may trap
water are dry before reinstalling into the air purifier. DO NOT
place a wet or damp collection cell in the air purifiereff1848.jpg
4. Snap off the charcoal odor absorber from the back of the cell. Change
as necessary for continued odor removal. (fig. 3)

Soot all over Older Ionic Breeze Quadra


Hey, if you read the instuction manual : the DON"Ts section-you will see that candles, scent producing products,cause a lot of soot in these cleaners. If you burn scented candles, or use anythind that generates airborne odors, you will need to clean the system more frequently ( every 2-3 days).
I clean mine every week-no matter what.
One of the postings, talked about a : Monthly cleaning that was performed.
You've guessed it. The thing died-arced out.
So, extra odors kill these filters.

XL-15 Classic Living Air emmitting Foul Odor!!


Ionizers do cause a bad odor to happen. I work in the copier business and do work around machines that can cause an ozone to happen when there are ran. Copiers like ionizers can cause an ozone to happen because the air particles are being electrically charged. The smell isn't good to be breathing in as well.

Here is an EPA report about ionizers

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be making a decision about the health effects on ionizers by the end of the year. Their decision can effect selling ionizers all together.

This industry should have been regulated years ago and after what happened to Sharper Image this year due to their arrogance it isn't doing the industry any favors. They went out of business because of Consumer Reports findings and tried to sue them for it.

If you really want the air in your house cleaned, the best way to do it is using a hepa filter.

Last night for the first time the machine is emitting a gaseous smelling odor. At first we thought it was coming from the house, electrical or outside. Not finding anything which would generate this...


The odor is trace amounts of ozone. I hate the smell myself, some people love it. Most common cause is a short in the cells. Can you hear any arcing noises?

Did you clean it recently. The ozone can be reduced by making a change in the power head. What is the model number and date code........Should be like, F300Aor E1625, The date code is a four digit numbe like.....0904. Both can be found on the back of the aircleaner door.
