Just had the "snapping" problem over the last 5 weeks. First try was to wash the cells in the normal fashion. when the snapping started again in a week I washed the cells in the dishwasher. They began snapping again in a week or less so I removed the cells and made a very close inspection of them. Using a very bright light I noticed the wires had a very uniform coating of something light gray in color. I picked at that coating with my finger nails and it came off to reveal the BARE wire underneath, Ah Ha, that coating was NOT supposed to be there ALL the time. So, CAREFULLY using my fingernails and a bit of wooden stick I scratched off that coating on all of the wires (it goes all round the wire) to reveal the bare wire and now it works with out snapping. Those wires can be broken if you are not careful. They can be replaced but that's just more hassle than being careful.
Good Luck, be careful, it can be done by the homeowner (and should be done too).
*Plug in air cleaner and press POWER button until short “beep” sounds. . Press the RESET FILTER button by gently inserting a paperclip into the RESET FILTER hole on the control panel. The light will flash 5 times before a “beep” sounds to indicate the filter has been reset.
Pull off the front panel and look at the upper right, you will see two holes. One on top is the size of a pencil, and one below it the size of a dime. Use a paperclip, pen tip, ect and push the reset button in the center of the dime sized hole.

I cleaned the filters as well earlier and the red filter light still blincked to clean the filters. Then I pushed the power button for about 10 seconds continously and then turned it on and the light turned off.
My unit would display e001 and e003 errors. Cleaning the filter and replacing the ceramic ozone plate did not fix it. Ended up taking the board out and inspecting it. Three capacitors were bad. After replacing, the system is working again.
Apparently they used for Vaultz storage boxes. It seems to be a common item. Here is a photo of a box with the key installed. I will post the link as well. You can make out the word WINIX on the key is you look carefully.
If it is an air IONIZER type air cleaner, it may need cleaning itself. Pick up a can of dry air spray for computer keyboards. It's about $4.00 U.S. at Walmart. BE SURE to unplug the unit before spraying it and DO NOT turn the spray can upside down and spray it. You should also let the unit air out for 30 minutes before plugging it back in. This "spray air" used to be R-12 chlorofluorocarbon "Freon" refrigerant before they found that it destroyed the ozone layer. Freon was not flammable and almost indestructible. Now, they use Hydroflourocarbon R-134a refrigerant which is very flammable and ionizer type air cleaners can produce electric sparks during normal operation due to their high internal air ionizing voltages. Also, in either case, if you turn the can upside down and spray it, you will be venting liquid which comes out at sub zero C or F temperatures and can freeze and crack plastic parts or iron ferrite coil cores. good luck.
