Question about Air Purifiers
One unit was purchased in 2004. Module is newer in both units. The other is second hand. Wondering if the environment is contributing somehow, but its just an apartment.

SOURCE: Styrofoam inside
There is a piece of styrofoam used in the construction of the air filter that is visible inside the unit. I think its there for noise reduction/insulation purposes and I wouldn't touch it if I were you. Unless you're talking about little styrofoam pieces that may have fallen in during packaging and shipping, I'd leave it alone.
Hope this helps.

there's usually a troubleshooting guide stuck on the inside of the door. it suggests a systematic flowchart for diagnosing the problem.
you should be able to isolate it to either the power supply (means replacement), or one of the cells.
on mine, one of the many little vanes got a bent during cleaning, and was shorting out. (it doesn't take much.) a quick visual and very little judiciously applied force straightened it out and fixed the problem.
i've also found that the unit will crackle a lot after a cleaning because of drops of water remaining in the cells, so i usually reassemble everything, but leave the unit turned off for an hour or two, which lets the blower on the furnace dry the cells for me.

SOURCE: Red Cleaning Light won't turn off
If the cleaning light stays red it is do to a failure of the nichrome wire sensor that detects deposit build up. This wire is locatied in the center where the grids are removed and easily broken. It runs from top to bottom twice. Look inside and if you see a loose wire that looks like a fine thread that is your problem. Not a do it yourself job.

SOURCE: Have cleaned unit and will not work. The clean
I just fixed my proffessotional ionic. Im not sure what I did. lol. I took the screws out of the bottom, didnt see anything wrong, tho there is a piece of plastic in there, I dont know what it is. I cleaned the 2 center long metal like things, cleaned the contacts that the metal blades touch. cleaned the wires with alcohol and qtips, put it all back together, and it came on!!!!!!

Step 2: Please assign your manual to a product:
I have taken many of these apart and have found no reason for the popping sound other than environment. You may have high humidity which could contribute. In any case have not found to be a safety issue,just a little annoying. The black circle is material the unit is removing from your air. If you are in a closed environment that should become less evident as it cleans the air. If you are in a poor air quality area and open the windows often you will continue to get this. I have replaced motors in many units and have open up and cleaned many too. Message if you want more info.
Thank you so much for responding to this question! I've got two units. I thought theywere going bad so I bought another one. Now its doing the same thing in a matter of days. Do you still work on these units? If not, do you know who does, in case I need it?
