Clean Filter Red light

I have two Pure-lon Air Filters and both machines the red 'clean filter' light will not stop flashing even when I have just cleaned the filters. There must be a way of cancelling the warning light.
Thanks.

I cleaned the filters as well earlier and the red filter light still blincked to clean the filters. Then I pushed the power button for about 10 seconds continously and then turned it on and the light turned off.

A lot of these things have a reset method where you hold power (or whatever button's around to do the job) for 7-10 seconds on starting it up again....

My pure ion (non-advanced) was doing the same thing. I did a few different things while trying to fix it and am not sure which one worked but it is fixed. 1) I unplugged the unit and took both filters out. 2) then wiped off the 5 metal contact areas in each of the filter slots on the unit with my finger, I also wiped off the metal contact area on the filters themselves especially where they contact inside the unit. 3) I plugged in the unit (without inserting the filters) and pressed the power button (it blinked once) 4) Then I inserted the filters and powered it on. And voila! no red clean filter light!! Hope this helps yall! I just wish I knew exaclty which thing fixed it.

I have cleaned the filters, and i still get the Clean Filter message. It is running fine, but the red letters Clean Filter are still there... any suggestions???


How did you clean the filters? I run mine through the dishwasher by themselves and it works pretty good. The tops and bottoms of the filters near the edges need to be wiped pretty clean.

My sister gave me her Brookstone Pure ion Air purifier....The "clean filter" light flashes red....I wiped the filter with a damp cloth...so think it is clean...?....Is this how to clean it? ....and how do...


Wiping it off won't clean the filter. I submerse mine in hot soapy water ( oxiclean w/any favorite multipurpose liquid cleaner.Let it air dry completely before placing it back in unit.I have tried the dishwasher method and it didn't clean it.I also thoroughly wash all crevices of the unit.If red light doesn't go off, reclean the filter(s). It has all ways worked for me.

My ionair cleaner doesn't clean the air what so ever. All four filters are perfectly clean after running for over two months. All of them are properly inserted and seated as specified. No filter warnings turn on and the unit works in all other ways. There is an ongoing fire in the hills nearby and our house if full of hazy smoke.

Brookstone Pure-ion Advanced


i am a low voltage tech my wife told me that our 506840 air cleaner stopped working so being a tech geek i had to know why it just stopped working.when plugged in i heard a click telling me that the main board was getting power.opened the back end where power cord goes to put my meter and voltage was going to the main power coil. but the main board was oxidized. when my wife was cleaning the filters and might not have had the filters completely dried the water was dripping down to main board.the unit to main power source is not design very well where water from cleaning the filters can drip down to main power board.solution i am working on is trying to get a new board when we bought this it was $499.00

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!

Yes to get the clean filter light to go off, you have to clean filter, put back in the machine, and hold down the power button for 3 secs to reset it. the clean filter light will go off!
