• Carefully discard any plastic wrapping that was
used for the packaging.
• Do not use the air purifier outside.
• Do not place the unit near any heat source or
in direct sunlight.
• Always unplug the air purifier before removing
the grill, changing the filters, cleaning the air
purifier or whenever it is not in use.
• Do not use in or around water or any other liquids.
Do not attempt to wash the unit under running
water.
• Use appliance only for intended household use

• Ensure that all air openings are not restricted
or covered in any way.
• Do not place anything on top of the unit.
• Never insert any object into any openings.
• Do not use the air purifier if any part is missing
or damaged in any way.
• Do not attempt to repair or adjust any mechanical

• If the supply cord or plug is damaged, it must
be replaced by the manufacturer or its service
agent or a similarly qualified person in order to
avoid hazard.
• The air purifier contains no user serviceable
parts and should the product suffer damage or
breakdown it must be returned to the manufacturer
or its service agent.
• Should the air purifier stop working, first check
the fuse in the plug (UK only) or fuse/circuit breaker
at the distribution board is operating, before
contacting the manufacturer or service agent.
HOW THE AIR PURIFIER WORKS
Dirty, dust laden air is drawn through the back of
the air purifier and through the multi-stage filtration
system.
1. The carbon filter will help clear odours making
the air cleaner and fresher.
2. The HEPA filter entraps 99% of all smaller visible
and non-visible particles down to 2 microns in
size.
PRODUCT FEATURES
Ioniser
Your Bionaire® Air Purifier has an independently
controlled ioniser, which when turned on, releases
negative ions into the outgoing filtered air. Ions
are tiny particles that carry either a positive or
negative charge. These ions exist naturally all
around us in the air, water and ground. Both positive
and negative ions are colourless, odourless and
completely harmless.
Negative ions help the air purification process by
attaching themselves to very small airborne particles
in the room. These particles take on a negative
charge and may join with positively charged particles,
such as dust, pollen, smoke and pet dander to form
larger particles that are then more readily captured
by the filter system, or they may be attracted to
positively charged surfaces like walls or floors.
You may also note, after extended use, that dust
may have collected around the grills or front panel.
This is from the ionisation effect caused by the
negative ions exiting from the air outlet.This dust
does not come from the air output, but is drawn
out of the uncleaned air going past the air outlet.
This is additional evidence of the air cleaning
effectiveness of negative ions. The dust can be
easily removed with a clean, dampened cloth or
soft brush.
NOTE: it is important to change the HEPA filter
at recommended intervals. Using the ioniser in
conjunction with dirty filters may result in dirty
particles exiting the air purifier and being attracted
to walls, carpets, furniture and other household
objects. These dirty particles may prove very difficult
to remove.
PRE-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. After removing the unit from the box, remove
the plastic covering from the unit.
2. Select a firm level place where there are no
obstructions to the air inlet (front grill) or filtered
air outlet.
3. Remove the inlet grill by pulling the grill towards
you.
4. Remove both HEPA filters by gripping on both
sides and pulling forward.
5. Remove protective plastic bag from each filter
cartridge. The filter clip can only be attached
to the hang tabs on the filter one way (see
Figure 3). The filter clip should easily slide
onto the filter hang tabs. Do not use force
whilst attaching the filter clip to the filter. Align the
clip on the HEPA filter with the rails on the inside
of the unit (see Figure 4).
NOTE: The pleated material and rubber gasket
should be facing towards the unit when applied.
6. Replace the inlet grill by sliding back on to the
unit. Make sure that it snaps securely into position
(the grill only goes on one way).
NOTE: Do not point outlet towards wall.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Plug into a suitable electrical outlet.
2. Select the required operating Speed: Hi (
),
Medium (
), Low (
) by sliding the switch
to the appropriate setting.
3. To release negative ions into the filtered air,
slide the Ioniser button (
) to ON. The amber
light will illuminate.
4. The ioniser will not work unless the unit is running.
5. For optimum air filtration, it is recommended to
operate the air purifier continuously. Its rugged
motor is designed to give many years of service.
6. For continuous use, it is recommended to
operate the air purifier at the Medium ( )
setting. For quieter operation or use in a
bedroom, select the Low (
) setting. When
high levels of air pollution are present, select
the Hi ( ) setting to quickly circulate clean
filtered air.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
1. Turn the air purifier off and unplug it before cleaning.
2. The outside of the air purifier can be cleaned
with a soft, clean dampened cloth.
3. The filtered air outlet can be cleaned of dust
with a small, soft brush.
4. If you wish to clean the inside of the air purifier,
please only use a dry, soft cloth to wipe it down.
FILTER REPLACEMENT
IMPORTANT: IN ORDER TO RETAIN THE
EFFICIENCY OF YOUR AIR PURIFIER, THE
HEPA FILTER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED EVERY
6 MONTHS.
NOTE: Your air purifier has a filter condition sticker
that servers as a colour coded reference point.
1. Every few weeks check the condition of the
pre-filter.
2. Remove the inlet grill. If the foam pre-filter has
collected a noticeable amount of dust, remove
it from the inlet of the grill and wash it in warm
soapy water. Rinse and dry the pre-filter thoroughly
before replacing it in the inlet of the grill.
3. With the inlet grill removed, remove the HEPA
cartridge and dispose in the dustbin. DO NOT
try to wash and re-use the HEPA filter. Replace
with a new HEPA filter-BAPF30 removing the
protective plastic bag before inserting into the
air purifier.
4. Align the clips on the side of your HEPA filter with
the rails on the inside of the unit. Gently slide
the filter onto the rails.
5. The filter clip should easily slide onto the filter
hang tabs. Do not use force while attaching the
filter clip to the filter. Align the clip on the side of
your HEPA filter with the rails on the inside of
the unit.
NOTE: The pleated material and rubber gasket
should be facing towards the unit when applied.
6. Replace the inlet grill by sliding back on to the
unit. Make sure that it snaps securely into position
(the grill only goes on one way).
NOTE: Do not point outlet towards wall.
