    This problem has been solved. Harbourman has found
    someone with a product manual for the Bionaire 1175
    air cleaner.
    It states:

    Reset the Filter
    Monitor after changing the HEPA filters by

    pressing the power and sleep buttons on

    the control panel.

    Hope this helps someone else, too!

    BAP-1700 has a pin hole under the check filter light. Push in pin and it resets in approx. 6-8 seconds.

I think that this method for resetting the filter does not work UNLESS you first unplug the unit. (Note: I have tried this only on model BAP1175/1300. I recommend unplugging it for an hour, but I really have no specific minimum time for this; in the past I unplugged it for five minutes as recommended by Bionaire phone tech personnel, but the reset did not happen.) Then, after an hour, plug in the unit, and press the On/Off button (on my unit, this button reads, "Off") and Sleep button (on my unit, this button has a "crescent moon" icon) simultaneously. (Again, not sure how long, but I recommend that you hold these down for at least 20 seconds.) Then, you can turn the device on, and it should reset to 99%. Good luck!

OK, I have the table top version. I've had this very expensive paperweight in my house for a long time. It tells you to take a paperclip and reset both filtersfilters...... Which I did a thousand times. However, what no one tells you is you need to take a flashlight and look intointo those tiny holes. The one on mine goes downward on a deep 45` angle. So I tried again, this time pushing the paperclip downward on that 45 degree angle..... Bamm.... It finally reset. Had to believe that I spent hundreds of bucks on the machine and more on filters. The filters were probley still great.... But the reset hole was ******* up. Learn from my experience my friends

The Intelli-Check™ Filter Monitors will indicate replacement of the pre-filter and the

HEPA filter. Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),

you may need to check and replace the filters more or less frequently.

To check Expected Filter Life Usage

When the unit is turned on, quickly press the appropriate filter monitor button. The

pre-filter light will flash up to 3 times and the HEPA filter light will flash up to 4 times,

depending upon how much expected filter life has been used.


1 flash = from new, up to 1/3 expected life used up

2 flashes = between 1/3 and 2/3 expected life used up

3 flashes = between 2/3 and all of expected life used up

Remains on = time to check/replace pre-filter


1 flash = from new, up to 1/4 expected life used up

2 flashes = between 1/4 and 1/2 expected life used up

3 flashes = between 1/2 and 3/4 expected life used up

4 flashes = between 3/4 and all of expected life used up

Remains on = time to check/replace HEPA filter

To RESET Filter Monitor

When the filter monitor light remains on, it is time to check/replace the filter and reset

the filter monitor, if needed. With the unit powered on, press and hold the appropriate

filter monitor button down for approximately 5 seconds until the light turns off.

Hunter 730 carbon pre-filter replacement orange light

Filter lights on your Air Purifier 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 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!

    Noggin's solution is correct.  My copy of the BAP825 manual says to poke a paper clip into "the hole marked RESET."  There is no hole marked 'reset' on the air cleaner.  Thanks, Noggin!
