Model s1871sharper image room purifiler. keeps blinking that it is not clean when i just cleaned it


Just check to make sure none of the wires at the front of the unit broken and shorted to an adjacent plate.

Wash the electrode unit with an acidic cleaner like Formula 409, and let it dry, and dust out the cabinet with clean compressed air if you have a source. While this will not alleviate all the red indicator indicators, it will address most of them. The others, you may just decide to live with because the air filer is still filtering/ionizing even if it does indicate it needs cleaning..

When I'm in my bathroom and showering the light turns red- what does this mean- Mold?. moisture?


The simple answer is moisture. If you have a bathroom exhaust fan, be sure to run it during and after you're showering. Typically, for a bathroom exhaust fan to reduce the moisture properly, it should remain ON for at least 15 minutes after your showering is complete,

Hope this helped to answer your question.

I just replaced my filter for the winix 5300 model and the replace filter indicator does not seem to turn off. Are there any solutions or procedures as to how i should go about this matter?


Remove the front cover and locate the FILTER RESET button below the DUST SENSOR level display indicator lights. Press and hold this button for 3 seconds until the unit beeps and the REPLACE FILTER indicator light goes out.

Dust filter has indicated extreme level of dust for several days making the fan stay on high. any way around having it professionally repaired?


- Remove the top two screws from the control panel.
- Remove the control panel. Be careful not to pull to hard as there is a ribbon cable taped into place.
- If the ribbon cable is taped, remove the tape and set down the panel as to not put weight on the ribbon cable.
- On the top left side of the unit (behind the dust sensor), there is a small box that is held in by a screw and plastic clips. Remove the screw and put tension on the clips so you can remove the box.
- there should be two holes in the box (one on each side), use a cotton swab and alcohol to clean outside and inside the box. I reached inside with the wet swab as far as it would reach.
- While you are in there, take some time to remove as much dust off of the front panel and anywhere else it may be.

That did the trick for me.

How do I reset the "replace filter" light? I put a new filter in an don't know how to make the red light go out. Thank you


With the unit on - take off the front panel - right under where the "replace filter" light is, there is a button that says "Reset" hold that button in until it beeps - then the light should turn off. Hope this helps :)

Honeywell F50A does not clean well


sounds like it is working. You could replace the cells and prefilters with a disposable box filter that fits.

Filter not clicking or emitting clean air smell and dust is flowing like filter is not energized


MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CELL(S) ARE CLEAN ... CLOSELY INSPECT TO SEE THAT THERE ARE NO BROKEN IONIZING WIRES (THE SMAAL STAINLESS-STEEL WIRES THAT ARE BETWEEN THE COLLECTOR PLATES). MAKE SURE POWER GOING INTO UNIT TO IS "OFF"!!! ... NOT JUST THE SWITCH ON THE UNIT. THEN TRY THE FOLLOWING: THIS AIR-CLEANER THAS A AIR-FLOW SENSOR THAT SOMETIMES GETS CLOGGED ... IT IS INSIDE THE TOP CONTROL PANEL. THERE SHOULD BE A DIAGRAM UNDER THE CONTROL BOX COVER PLATE TO ASSIST YOU LOCATING THAT SENSOR. MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAN. THE HIGH-VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER BEING BAD USEUALLY WILL SMELL LIKE BURNT WIRING. AND WILL LOOK BURNT. MAKE SURE YOU SEE NO LOSE WIRES ... SOME TIMES THE SPARK-PLUG LOOKING WIRE GOING TO THE CELL(S) CAN BURN OFF ITS CONNECTOR. YOU CAN CHECK THE DOOR SAFETY SWITCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS MAKING CONTACT WHEN HANDLE IS PROPERLY CLOSED. GOOD LUCK ... HOPE YOU HERE THAT ZAPPING SOON ... BY THE WAY ... IF YOU GET A POWER LIT ON ... GIVE THE RETURN-AIR DUCT A SLIGHT BANG ... IF IT IS WORHING IT SHOULD SNAP CRACKLE AND POP FOR A FEW SECONDS. MAKE SURE YOU SEE NOTHING (HAIR?) LYING ACROSS THE PLATES OR IOMIZING WIRES ON EACH CELL IF YOURS HAS TWO. ELECTRIC AIR CLEANERS ARE ONLY GOOD WHEN THEY ARE KEPT CLEAN ... PET HAIR IS A CONSTANT MAITENCE PROBLEM AND CELLS SHOULD BE LEANED EVERY TWO WEEKS. FOR BEST PERFOMANCE.
