People with certain health problems (e.g. allergies or asthma) have a
greater need for healthy air. For this reason, the appliance allows you to
adjust the sensitivity of the air quality sensor. If you set it to higher sensitivity
level, the appliance starts cleaning the air at lower pollution level.
There are 3 sensitivity levels:
- standard
- sensitive

Filter replacement
Filter maintenance
This appliance is equipped with the Healthy air protect lock to ensure that
the filters are in optimal condition when the appliance is operating.
When one of the filters is almost full and has to be cleaned or replaced,
the appropriate filter replacement light starts to flash. When you do
not replace the New home filter, the appliance stops operating and the
appliance is locked.
When the appliance is locked, the filter replacement light of the filter
concerned lights up on continuously.
Note: Only replace a filter when the filter replacement light flashes. If you
replace the filter before the filter replacement light starts flashing, the lifetime
counter will not be reset but will continue counting the lifetime of the previous
filter. As a result, the filter replacement light will start flashing much too soon.
Filter replacement lights
The filter replacement lights indicate which filter has to be cleaned or
replaced.
-
Filter replacement light 1 flashes: filter 1 (the pre-filter) has to be
cleaned. See chapter ‘Cleaning’ for further instructions.
