Bionaire Air... | Answered on Jun 04, 2019

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!

Why is it not running? Motor defective? Receiving power? Device that switches power to motor working? You have to localize the issue before shopping for parts.

These units usually put out ozone into the air in your home which is a known lung irritant. Sometimes they will call it an ionizer or something like that. If you truly have indoor air quality issues the only way to properly attack it is through three steps
source control - what's causing it(uv lights to kill it usually)
ventilation - bring in fresh outdoor air and exhaust stale indoor air(ERVs and HRVs depending on your climate some dealers won't sell these if they don't offer it to you they are dumb find someone who does they are Recovery Ventilators)
filtration - a whole home filtration system (look to dealers who carry Lennox who is the only company with a 100% ozone free product line and the highest filtration rates available on the market "MERV 16" filters or Trane is ok as well as Carrier systems)
You can look up the Lennox Merv 16 filter it was rated #1 in Consumer Reports december 2007 as the best whole home air filter above the trane clean effects and others. can be bought and installed for around 400 bucks to 1000 dependeing on how hard it is and ask about the pure air system if you want higher levels.
