Water filter Our water filter's LED light doesn't flash anymore. We replaced the filter one day and the LED stayed on green and red at the same time for a few days, then quit all together. Does the filter still work? and how do we get the LED working again?

    No more lightd after 6 months of use. water does not filter

    Light not working is okay and is only a aide as to when to change. It is not needed. I change my filter when I notice the flow is restricted or when taste is not right. I you like the light then you need a new unit.

Electronic circuit needs repair

Posted on May 17, 2009

  • TS-DT Jan 17, 2011

    Hello. Had same problem. Removed fitler cap, then carefully (pressure) run some water through the filter. Separately I cleaned the cap (with the LED indicator) in the inside with normal water - before and after the cleaning I did shake out the water from the cap.
    After mounting and starting the water the LED did change to green again.
    Try and hopeful enjoy.
    It is very disappointing that the manufacturer is not able to provide any support for this kind of issues/concerns on his website http://www.purwater.com/). Therefore I am finishing up the remaining 4 filters I have and will replace with a different company's product. We all should only buy products which are being well supported.

V5 filter replace - how to reset red flashing light?


Hello,

So after you have replaced the V5 Cell Filter in the IQ Air, here are the steps you'll need to follow in order to reset the filter indicators:

  • At the main menu on the control panel, push the menu button 7 times until you get to the screen that says Replace Filter.
  • At the Replace Filter screen, press and hold the Enter Key until the cursor appears, and is flashing.
  • Press the UP arrow button on the keypad until you get to the V5 Cell Filter.
  • At the V5 Cell Filter screen press the Enter Key to confirm your filter reset selection. This will turn the corresponding filter LED to a flashing red light. IQAir requires that your reconfirm the filter selection to prevent inadvertently resetting the wrong filter. If you chose the wrong filter, press the menu key after pressing the enter the first time to disregard the filter change command.
  • To confirm the filter reset selection, press enter a second time, which will reset the filter life, and reset the filter hours.
You can repeat these instructions for the other two filters on your machine when it's time. Here's a link to the product manual for your IQ Air Health Pro Plus which will give you the same instructions, as well as other maintenance instructions.

Tip

Your vacuum cleaner doesn't suck much?


You have emptied the dust canister for many times. You hear the motor running, but it doesn't pick up much. Your vacuum cleaner is still OK...
If the motor was not running at the beginning, I suggest you read some other Fixya troubleshooting tip.
Now it's just TIME to replace these filters.
They come in set of 2, a first one has a cylinder shape and a second one is flat.

I recommend as a good consumer, you to first order a new set, cause this cleaning process may be spread over few days. Unless you wish not vacuum for a while...
After replacing with the new one under the cannister, here is how you RECYCLE the old one.

Important Safety Rules First:
  1. This procedure should be done only outside of your home. Stay away from all clean surfaces as hanging bed sheets, rugs, clothing, and open windows : cause one wind drought may give you more work to do ;-( !
  2. Always wear a safety mask, for obvious reasons: since we don't know what's in there: breathing any dust is very hazardous to your health. Better be safe than... sorry :-(
  3. You should wear rubber gloves and old clothes. Why would you get your hands or your clothes dirty?
Brush out all you can off the cylinder and the flat filter with a cleanup brush or disposable rag.
Soak the used vacuum filters in a disposable container (yogurt or ice cream) ;-) filled with soapy water (1tb spoon dishsoap in 1/2 quart or liter of water). Soak for 10min. Rince once. Refill again with soapy water and let it soak overnight.
Rince it now with clear wather. Looking through it you shall see most of the dust should be gone.
Do not replace these wet filters the same day in your vacuum cleaner because it would obviously damage it's motor. Why do you have to hurry for?

Let it DRY in a warm place or in direct sun for another day! Store it until you are ready to replace it again.
Your have RECYCLED once more! You may do it as a few more times as long as it doesn't affect the performance of your vacuum cleaner.
This process could be applied to many more vacuum cleaners and some household items we normally throw away.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

Red light won't go off


To RESET the Electronic Filter Check:
When the filter check light remains on,it is time to check/clean the HEPA-Type
filters and reset the filter check,if needed. With the unit powered on,insert the tip of a ball-point pen or
paperclip into the hole next to the LED filter check light and hold for approximately 5 seconds until the
light turns off (Fig 5). Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),you may need
to check and clean the filters more or less frequently. If the HEPA-Type filters are cleaned before the filter
check light turns on,the filter check should be reset at the same time.
These cleaning intervals are intended as guidelines only. Performance of any filter media is dependent
upon the concentration of contaminates going through the system. High concentrations of contaminates
such as dust,pet dander and smoking will reduce the useful performance of the filter.
NOTE:The HEPA-Type filters are not washable.

Hunter 730 carbon pre-filter replacement orange light


Filter lights on your Air Purifier http://www.fastbrowser.net/netpicker/Filter-lights-on-your-Airifie.htm One of the best things about your IQAir Air Purifier is that it has warning lights to tell you when to change the prefilter, gas or hepa filters. Of course how long they last depends on your pattern of usage. For the initial 80% of the filter life the control panel will display a green light next to the corresponding filter on the outline of the unit. When the orange light goes on it does not mean that the filter needs to be replaced immediately but that there is 20% of useful life left. IQAir gives you plenty of time and the machine will tell you how many hours you have left. Once the number of hours gets to within a few hours remaining the orange light will then change to red. It is at this time you should change the filter. If you forget to change it and there are no hours left the hours will go into the negative displaying how many hours you have gone over and the red light will change to a flashing red light.

Just in case you have lost the manual like one of our customers, this is how you reset the filter lights:
1. Press the menu button ( 7 times) until you get to where the display says new filter.
2. Press the enter button and hold it down for 3 seconds and a number 1 will be flashing after the words new filter on the display. This flashing number is so you can enter which filter you have changed. Filter number 1 is the pre-filter, filter number 2 is the V-5 gas filter, and filter number 3 is the Hepa filter.
3. You change the number for the filter by pressing the up arrow button.
4. Once you reach the correct filter number you press the enter button and the control panel will display a question mark after the words new filter on the display. Below this it will say, E = Yes M = Cancel. If you wish to cancel the entry so it does not reset a new filter life, simply press the Menu button.
5. If you want it to reset the filter life for the changed filter, simply press the Enter button. Once this is done, the filter light will change back to the green light, which will show the filter has been changed. If you go to the remaining filter life on the control panel for the filter number you just changed, you will now see the remaining life of the filter in hours has been reset.

    Red light on air filter


    After spending hours searching for this supposed little hole easy to miss, I called customer service. I found out that it's easy to miss because it doesn't exist!

    Here's the correct answer: Once you've replaced the filters, turn the unit back on. Then, with the machine running, press and hold down the on/off power button for about two seconds. The red light will flash and then turn off.

    Hepa filter


    The red light indicates a plugged filter. Replace the filters plug the machine in and get a paper clip. Streighten out the clip and put it through the tiny hole in the top. You'll feel it push a switch that will give a click you can feel. Keep holding the clip wire down for several seconds. When the red flashes remove the clip wire. The light will stay off if the filter is clean.

    Red Light indicator on


    I have a Bionaire tower air filter model BAP1700 that I bought from Costco. The filter check LED came on recently after 5 months of use. After cleaning the Permatech filters, I tried every remedy on this website including following the instructions that say push power button for 2 secs. Nothing worked. Then I noticed a tiny hole on the control panel in front of clean filter LED; I pushed a paper clip pin into that hole, felt a click, held it down and 2 secs later, LED went out. Success!
