Question about Honeywell Air Purifiers
Normally Honeywell has NO replacement parts. Run it as is, then throw it away.

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.

Power Off the unit then Press and HOLD the Off-Timer and Function buttons at the same time WHILE Powering the unit back On. The Replace Filter light will blink for 5 seconds than go out. Now you can release the the buttons.
Just to make sure everything is working fine power off and on the unit.
On a side note if you are a tight wad like me you may want to just smak the filter layers against the ground a few times to clean them and re-use them / make them last longer. When the replace fileter light comes on too often then it is time to replace the filter.
No worries ;o)

Does this unit have a 3 volt battery in the control panel like the 17005 model? The battery lasts appx 4-5 years then the unit doesnt seem to work any more once you change it. The unit must be left plugged in while you change the battery otherwise you lose your programing. If your not under warranty, UNPLUG it then pull out the filter, take out the 6 screws, separate the sides, and expose the fan. If the fan does not spin very easilly with no drag, the bearings are gummy; which is why nearly all small motors get replaced. The motor can be easilly disassembled, gummy grease washed off with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, and reoiled with synthetic oil. These units are designed to gum up and require replacement at approximately the same time the warranty expires. They would last almost indefinitely if oiled in their little oil ports occasionally (every couple of years). If your bearings are stiff, then a hidden safety device has tripped to avoid a fire, and if you are handy, you can replace the blown fuse if you can locate it on the circuit board, or the blown over temp device. If you have to pay some one to do this, it is cheaper to replace the whole machine in this throw away world.
