The main problems I'm seeing on these posts for this filter are design and operater issues. 1. I never run hot water through the unit in filter mode. 2. I never run cold water through the filter turned on high (pressure issues arise), it doesn't filter the water any faster. You just want enough flow to run through the filter. 3. The steel sleeve was a good solution (again pressure) but came up alittle short (ie my epoxy fix). 4. The light is powered by a chip batterey that is unreplaceable and may be bad. Try reinstalling the cartridge. I personally pay no attention to the lights other than a clue. I change my filter when the taste changes or there becomes a flow issue. 5.There are filter screens prior the filter that can become clogged if you live in a poor water area. 6. The filtered water only comes out of the spigot and no other leaks (something loose or pressure issue).
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!
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. Fig.5
When the filter monitor light remains on, it is time to check/clean the IFD™ filters and reset the filter monitor, if needed. With the unit powered on, insert the tip of a ball-point pen or paperclip next to the LED filter check light and hold for approximately 5 seconds until the light turns off (Fig. 3). Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used), you may need to check and clean the filters more or less frequently. If the IFD™ filters are cleaned before the filter monitor light turns on, the filter monitor should be reset at the same time.
Since you weren't very specific where it leaks or when it started (like after a filter change) it could be tough to troubleshoot this leak.
If it is leaking at the faucet connection try tightening up where it screws onto the faucet. Depending on your strength (or lack of) you may need to use pliers to get a tight connection. Don't go crazy tight or it will crack the plastic fitting. If it still leaks remove the unit from the faucet and check the rubber washer inside where it screws onto the faucet. Make sure it's still there and is centered inside the cup and seated properly. Then reattach the unit to the faucet and tighten it well.
If it's leaking from the main body try removing the filter and reinstalling it making sure you have seated the filter properly and screwed on the cover correctly, and all the way. When it is tight the water outlet will be exactly at the bottom of the unit. Sometimes it's tricky getting it tight enough especially with wet hands.
Finally, if the leak is coming from the filter on/off selector this could be tough to fix. I would try firmly pushing and pulling the selector knob in and out several times while in both the on and off positions. This may re-seat the leaking seal. I wouldn't be too hopeful about this fix though. You may need to replace the unit if this part is leaking.
i have same problem, pur filter light turned red and stays red after filter change. light is solid red, not ever blinking red.
Similar issue but, my Pur Filter light kept flashing red after filter replacement. I just remove the filter from the sink, cleaned out minor debris from the entering screen. Really didn't see anything obvious. I ran water back through the water exiting end and rinsed the entire housing off. Reassembled it and the green light came back on flashing as it should.
Genius!!! Thank you I was going to take it back. So simple, and obvious but it took you to tell us. Thank you so much and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
After cleaning the screen of the water intake, which had some mineral fragment accumulation, the light was still red. After opening the assembly and removing the filter, I found quite accidentally that there's a spring loaded mechanism to tell it that the filter has been replaced. But, it initially didn't trigger because mineral buildup had stuck it in a "filter is still present" state. Tapping on it a few times dislodged it, and then for good measure, I pressed the mechanism a few times to hopefully keep the mechanism working when I do my next filter change.
