If it's only doing it for a short period of time, it's picking up dust in the air and zapping it like a bug zapper. If it's continually doing it, there may be a short where the filter touches the electrodes or just misplacement of the filter.

It keeps making a static sound. and it lights up with the sound because there is a small shock that happens ever 10 seconds in the back above the filter


That happens when the electrostatic grid needs to be cleaned. There should be instruction for cleaning the electrostatic grid in the owner's manual.

My Oreck air filter makes a snapping sound every 5-10 minutes. I have cleaned it thoroughly and checked for wires but I can't see anything wrong. I even switched the air filters thinking that one room was...


Dont use when it does this. Your collection grate is dirty and the sound you hear is an electrical discharge arcing between the grates like a small bolt of lightning. That entire metal electrostatic grate needs to be cleaned with Orek's cleaner or something similar. But certainly do not use until you fix it.

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.

I have the same problem as gerardperez7. One of my germicidal light quadras won't turn the light on and doesn't appear to be cleaning the air at all. I even put a new light bulb in it and it doesn't fix the problem.

Is this a good model # for a GE electrostatic air cleaner/filter. If so, are parts still available for it? Model #BEF28009 (I.D. tag is hard to read?)


not likely the electrostatic air cleaners are discontinued for the most part because the really didnt do all they claimed. you can achieve much better air quality from a standard media air filter with a merv rating of 10 or better.

Have a Living Air XL15 > everything works motor, fan, BUT .....


look through the front grill while its "on" you should see a glow from a neon lamp inside. If its not on chances are the circuit card is dead (should have about 350VDC plate voltage).
I have a used but good board if anyone needs one.

Quadra - only red light goes on.


In addition to cleaning the plates on the cartridge, also turn the unit upside down then right side up a few times. There are 2 small wires inside the housing, and each has a ceramic ball on it that cleans the wire when the unit is inverted. Also, look through the vents to make sure the wires are not broken. If they are intact, they run in a straight line, almost the entire length of the unit.

If this does not help or the wire is broken, contact The Sharper Image. I believe this unit has a 5 year warranty. When mine failed, they exchanged it for free, even without a receipt.

Good luck!
