Question about Brookstone Pure-Ion (506840) Air Purifier

2 Answers

No Power I have a Pure Ion air unit that I unplugged for the winter. It is ~ 2 years old. When I plug it into the wall outlet now it has no power. I have tried several outlets and taken the filters out & cleaned them with no results. Any ideas?

If you are at all handy, there are two separate fuses on the power board in the bottom of the unit. Mine had a bd fuse and a bad wire. If you can't get it fixed, I'm looking for parts. Contact me before you throw it out.

    I also have a "no power" problem in my 506840 unit. I found fuse F1 on the green pwb near where the 120 volt power line is connected, and it measures very low resistance. Where is the other fuse? Jim knjhanlon@msn.com

Let me know if you are selling the charcoal filter. I have a hole poked in my top one and would buy yours if you have it.

Pure Ion will not turn on. We took out the filters to clean them. Wall outlet works for other items. Have tried other outlets.


It sounds like the main board is not getting power. The power supplies have capacitors inside that do overheat and burn out. You can test power coming from power supply leading to main board with a voltmeter. You can try to unplug for 8 hours, in meantime while unplugged, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then wait 1/2 hour and plug back in to see if unit has reset itself

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!

PURE Ion shuts off after a few moments


You need to shut it off, unplug it, and pull both the filters out at once and then plug it back in, and push both filters in at the same time, simultaneously. This will re-set it.
Also, if this continues to happen, you must vacuum the insides of the unit, aside from the filters, themselves, it can get all clogged up.
We live on a busy street and our house can get REALLY dusty, we have a older home with carpets and two cats - so our unit really has to work hard!
Good luck!
