Red light wont change back to green after cleaning
I did the same thing and now I need to replace the cell collector. You need to replace it to if the wire is broken. Please let me know the outcome of your problem.
Where to find the part is hard to get.

Collector cell light always comes on
We purchased one of these in April 2009. Same issue appeared with us. Cleaned the cell and the "clean collector cell" still stayed illuminated. Checked the manual and the trouble shooting section stated to hold down the "air revitalizer button" till the "clean collector cell" light blinks three times. After this operation the light went out and all was fine!!!! Hopes this clears your issue!
Blinking 'Check Collector Cell' light
which model XL series do you have? There is obviously something shorted or arcing on the plates of the cell. look at the plates and see if they are laying flat and the wires are all still attached across the front of the cell. A loose, sagging, broken or bad contact on the end plates will cause the bad cell lights. clean off the area where the cell makes contact inside the unit. The metal strips that run across the ends of the cell make contact with the plates inside the cell and get their power from them, dirty contacts in any part of these contacts will cause the problem. Even a bad contact from the end cap to the plates inside the cell will cause this. Try wiggling the cell around, kind of push on it on edge to get the plates to shift slightly and clean the points where the plates touch the outer strips on the sides. Check for arcing with the lights turned off,

slow blinking light means the unit is in DRY MODE.. flast blinking light means some sort of arcing or bad power supply.. if in dry mode let the unit run for an hour and it will stop blinking ..

Can't find ORECK filter #AT2PK, been waiting for
They discontinued it. Just go to any aquarium and buy a carbon filter pad and cut it to size. They sell big sizes for under $10 and just stick it in your Oreck Air 5 air purifier. Works just as well and cheaper!!

My oreck magnesium keeps turning off. Blue. Light keeps blinking
THE PROBLEM SEAMS TO BE WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE CARPET AND THE PAD-ALL VACUUMS NEED TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE IF THE PAD AND THE CARPET ARE THICK THE VACUUM WILL PULL ITSELF TOWARD THE FLOOR SLOW DOWN THE BRUSHROLL ENOUGH TO TRIGGER THE AUTO SHUTDOWN ON THE MAGNESIUM BECAUSE THE VACUUM CANT BREATHE. TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL ORECK AND THEY CAN PUT A FEW HOLES IN YOUR SOLEPLATE AND THIS WILL TAKE CARE OF THE ISSUE.
