Cluster Ion Control
The unit controls the ratio of minus cluster
ions and plus cluster ions depending on
the condition of the room.
CONTENTS
• Clean mode
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ........................ E-2
Approximately the same amount of plus
and minus cluster ions are discharged.
This mode is effective for reducing floating
mold and household odors in the air.

• CAUTIONS CONCERNING
THE INSTALLATION .................................... E-3
• Refresh mode
It is said that plenty of minus ions exist in
places such as waterfalls or forests.
In this operation mode, minus ions will be
released in an increased rate, in order to
bring the room air close to this condition.
• AUTO cluster ion mode
The unit will switch between the Clean
mode and Refresh mode automatically
depending on the amount of pollution in
the air detected by dust and odor sensor.

Some of the odor ingredients
adsorbed by the filters become separated and are discharged through the
exhaust port as odor.
Depending on the usage environment,
this odour may become strong after
several months and the exhaust port
may smell.
In this case, purchase an exchange
filter FZ-40SEF of the option goods,
and replace the filters.
This equipment complies with the
requirements of Directives 89/
336/EEC and 73/23/EEC as
amended by 93/68/EEC.

CAUTIONS CONCERNING THE INSTALLATION
DO NOT USE THE REMOTE CONTROL IN THE FOLLOWING LOCATIONS
• Locations where there are inverter lighting equipment or electronic spontaneous lighting equipment
The remote control may become inoperative. In this case, move away from such lighting equipment
or change direction.
• Location exposed to direct sunlight
The unit may not received signals from the remote control
INSTALLATION
• Leave at least 2m of space from televisions and radios
Electrical interference may occur if not.
• Leave at least 60cm of space from the wall
The motor may overheat, causing malfunction if not.
• Avoid a location where sensors are exposed to direct wind
The unit may not operate properly.
• Avoid a location where curtains, etc., come into contact with the intake or exhaust port.
Curtains, etc., may become dirty or malfunction may occur as a result.
EFFECTIVE USAGE
• Place on a stable surface with sufficient air circulation
• Near smoking area
Air pollution is detected quickly.
ABOUT THE FILTER
• Do not wash or reuse Apatite HEPA filter and deodorization filter.
• Small dust particles and odors such as tobacco smoke rise and accumulate at the top of the room.
• Large dust such as pollen and house dust accumulate at the bottom of the room.
• The wall, etc., behind the exhaust port may become dirty as time passes. When using the unit for
extensive period in the same location, use a vinyl sheet, etc., to prevent the wall from becoming dirty.
In addition, periodically clean the wall, etc.

ABOUT THE CLEAN-SIGN LAMP
• The dust sensor displays a clean sign depending on
the environment at the time the power plug is inserted
in the wall outlet.
• When the air is extremely dirty at the time the power
plug is inserted, the clean sign lamp may light green
since the polluted state is the environment which the
sensor bases the pollution rate on.
• In this case, switch manually to the desirable operation
mode as effective operation can’t be done in auto
operation.
• To reset the base pollution rate of the clean-sign lamp
remove and insert the power plug.

About the batteries
• The battery life is about 1 year.
Replace the batteries when the remote control becomes inoperative.
• Incorrect usage of the batteries may cause
battery fluid leakage and/or damage. Take
caution of the following when handling:
• When replacing the batteries, replace
both batteries with new ones of the same
type. (Use AA alkaline batteries (2 units)
or AA manganese batteries (2 units).)
• When not using the unit or remote control for an extensive period, remove the
batteries. This prevents malfunction of the
remote control from battery fluid leakage.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
(To maintain the best performance of this product, please clean the unit periodically.)
When cleaning, be sure to remove the power plug from the wall outlet. In addition, never
handle the power plug with wet hands.
Electrical shock and/or bodily injury may occur as a result.
MAIN UNIT
FILTERS
For soiling on the main unit and the installed
surface, clean as early as possible. Stubborn
dirt may be hard to remove.
Clean using the nozzle of a vacuum
cleaner without removing the pre-filter.
Dry wipe with a soft cloth
For stubborn dirt, wipe with a soft cloth dampened with water or warm water of 40°C or less.
Do not use volatile fluids
Benzene, paint thinner, polishing powder, etc.,
may damage the unit surface.
Do not use detergents
Detergent ingredients may damage the unit
surface.
NOTE
Do not get wet
Never apply water on the unit.
Never wash or clean the HEPA filter or
stamina-power carbon by directly contacting the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner.
This will greatly decrease the performance of the filters.
ODOR SENSOR
DUST SENSOR
The sensitivity of the sensors will become
unstable if the odor or dust sensor is dirty or
blocked.
Remove dust on the surfaces of the sensor
openings using a vacuum cleaner.

GUIDE FOR LIFE OF FILTERS
The replacement period differs depending on the usage hours and
location of installation.
• Some of the odor ingredients adsorbed by the filters become separated
and are discharged through the exhaust port as odor.
Depending on the usage environment, this odor may become strong in
several months and the exhaust port may smell.
If dust or odors cannot be removed easily, replace the filters.
•
(Refer to page1, FOR UNDERSTANDING THE PRODUCT)
Guide for filter replacing timing
• The following is a guide from JEM 1467 by Japan Electrical Manufacturers Association in
Japan, and in JEM 1467, the replacement period is set as when smoking 10 cigarettes per
day and the dust collection/deodorization power is reduced by half that of new filters.
• HEPA filter
About 5 years after opening
• Stamina-power carbon About 5 years after opening
• The filter timer lamp is programmed to light in about 5 years, when using the unit for 12
hours everyday, in order to indicate accumulated usage time of the guide above.
• The filter timer lamp is to be used only as a guide.
• The operation hours are kept in memory even when removing the power plug for
transportation to another room, etc.

Fill in the usage start date of the filters on the date label included with the replacement filters. Affix the label on top of the
replacement label that is already on the back of the front panel.
After replacing the filters:
Be sure to press the Reset button on the remote control with the power plug inserted in
the wall outlet.
A short beep will be heard and the operation hours stored in the memory will be reset. If
the filter replacement lamp is on, the lamp will turn off.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Before calling for repair, check the symptoms below for possible remedies, since the problem may
not be a malfunction of the unit.
SYMPTOM
REMEDY (not a malfunction)
The remote control does not
work
• Have the batteries depleted?
• Are the batteries inserted correctly?
• Is a fluorescent lighting in the room flickering due to service
life? (Refer to E-3)
Odors and smoke cannot be removed easily
The Clean sign lights green
even when the air is dirty
• Are the filters heavily soiled? (Refer to E-13)
• Is the opening of the dust sensor blocked or clogged?
• Was the air already dirty when the power plug was inserted
into the wall outlet? (Refer to E-4)
• The sensitivity of the sensor becomes unstable when the
opening of the dust sensor is dirty or is clogged.
Clean the dust around the sensor opening using a vacuum
cleaner. (Refer to E-12)
The Clean sign lights orange or
red even when the air is clean
The cluster ion lamp remains
green (blue) and does not
change
• During the Clean mode (or Refresh mode), the cluster ion lamp
colour will not change.
A sound is
heard from the
unit
• This is the sound that is emitted when the unit is in t h e
Refresh mode.
If the sound is irritating, switch the unit to the Clean mode.
• This is the sound that is emitted when the unit is generating
cluster ions.
If the sound is irritating, such as when sleeping, etc., set the
Cluster ion mode to OFF.
Click, click
Tick, tick, tick
The discharged air smells
• The ozone generated by the cluster ion generator may have
an odor. However, the density of ozone generated is very little
and is harmless to the human body. Furthermore, the ozone
decomposes quickly so it does not accumulate in the room.
The unit does not operate even
when smoking cigarettes
• Is the unit installed in a location that is difficult for the sensors
to detect cigarette smoke?
• Are the odour and dust or dust sensor openings blocked or
clogged? (In this case, clean the openings.)
