This may help. For FAP02 and FAP03 reset the filtertimer by holding down the FILTERCHANGE button for three seconds.A red light comes on. Before it disappears, the light will start flashing quickly as you continue to hold thebutton. The timer is reset. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/565968/3m-Fap01-Rs.html?page=4#manual

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)

SOURCE: red light on air filter

After spending hours searching for this supposed little hole easy to miss, I called customer service. I found out that it's easy to miss because it doesn't exist!

Here's the correct answer: Once you've replaced the filters, turn the unit back on. Then, with the machine running, press and hold down the on/off power button for about two seconds. The red light will flash and then turn off.

SOURCE: Red Light on front of Filter Queen Defender

When the red light is blinking, press and hold both up and down arrows until the red light blinks RAPIDLY, release both for a second or two, and press and hold both again until it stops blinking. It cured my problem.

SOURCE: my filters turn black after about a week

I am also experiencing this problem, as well as 2 other people that I found on google, so I am inclined to think tha 3M has changed something in their manufacturing process, I think it very odd that this problem is manifesting itself at this time in different locations.
I have been using this product for sometime, and the problem of filters turning very dark did not exist when I started using this product

Can somebody help fix the problem I'm having with my Honeywell air purifier....when I press power button it won't work all I see is red light any button I press red it wont do anything....pls!!!!.....

I have the same unit.
Have you cleaned out the removable filters?
also the red light at the bottom indicates the time to clean the filters.
to reset it, use a paper clip. The red light on the bottom right is the filter indicator light, what looks like it should be a light beside that filter light, is actually a reset button, just poke it with a paper clip for a few seconds to reset. The bottom red light goes out

I've replaced the filter. why won't the red replace filter light shut off?!

Remove the front cover and locate the FILTER RESET button above the dust sensor level indicator lights. Press and hold this button for 3 seconds until the unit emits a beep and the REPLACE FILTER light goes out.

Can't reset the filter status lights.

Is it possible you put the filter in backwards?

Defender air purifier

If you have replaced your main filter you need to reset the red light. If you have not replaced the main filter you will need to contact your local filterqueen distributor. If you go to www.filterqueen.com they will direct you to your closest distributor and they can walk you through over the phone on how to reset your red light.

Orange light help

Did you find an answer to your orange light question? I have an AM4000 defender that I bought off Craigslist and thought I got a good deal on it. One minute after turning it on the red light came on. I tried to reset it but  the red light won't flash so you can't reset it. I don't know if it's a filter problem or a circuit board problem and I don't want to spend $100 bucks on filters to find out it's a different problem. If you buy filters on e-bay, they're cheaper but if you spend $100 from a distributor then you reactivate the warranty. I'm sorry I bought it.
