should be inspected frequently and collected dirt removed from it regularly to prevent
excessive accumulation that may result in flashover and/or risk of fire.
Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near
children.
Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended
replacement parts.
Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If air cleaner is not working as it should, has
been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service
center before using.

GENERAL INFORMATION
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
BEFORE YOU PLUG IN YOUR AIR CLEANER, check the voltage rating plate located
on the back of the unit to check if it agrees within 10% of the voltage available. (See
Rating Plate).
DO NOT OIL the motor at any time. The bearings are permanently lubricated
and sealed.

FILTRATION STAGES
To ensure the highest quality of air, the air cleaner has a specially designed triple stage filtration
system. When air enters the unit, it passes through three filters and is then let out into the room
again.
Stage 1 Two pre-filters remove large particles such as strands of hair.
Stage 2 The electrostatic main filter (Reference No. EF100) removes smaller particles such
C
as pollen, mildew spores, dust.
Stage 3 Carbon filter, (Reference No. EF101). The carbon filter reduces the amount of gases
and odor (for example, tobacco smoke) from the indoor air. (The carbon filter will
reduce the air flow slightly.) The unit can be run without the carbon filter.
CAUTION: High voltage. Turn off the power switch and unplug before servicing.
This equipment should be inspected frequently and collected dirt
removed from it regularly to prevent excessive accumulation that may
result in flashover and/or risk of fire.
FOR BEST RESULTS
Place the air cleaner on the floor next to a wall. The air cleaner draws in air at floor level and blows
it out at the top. Place the air cleaner along the same wall as the room heater so that the rising
warm air coincides with the air flow of the cleaner. When using two or more units in one room,
place them along the same wall, as far apart as possible.
CAUTION: Do not place under a smoke detector. The cleaned air may delay the
smoke detector operation in the event of a fire.
FILTER CLEANING INTERVALS
Depending on the level of air contamination, we recommend that you follow the cleaning procedure
every two months or when the indicator on the display lights up.
The main filter may need cleaning more frequently if dust is visible on the upper filter surface.
Replace the main filter once a year or more frequently if necessary or when the indicator on the
display lights up.
When using the carbon filter, replace every three to six months or sooner if you are no longer able
to detect a reduction in odors.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
NOTE: Turn off the power switch and disconnect electrical cord from wall socket
before any cleaning or maintenance of air cleaner.
Stage 1 Filters (Pre-Filter)
(a) Open the access door. As you remove filters one at a time,
clean each one as you remove it with a vacuum cleaner,
preferably fitted with a HEPA filter. These filters can also be
washed with a mild detergent. Make sure they are completely
dry before placing back in the unit.
Use your vacuum’s brush nozzle to avoid damaging the filters.
After cleaning filters insert and close the door. The pre-filters
do not need to be replaced. Follow this procedure every two
months or more often for sensitive people, example: each time
you vacuum your home.
(a)
Stage 2 Filter (Main Filter)
Press the cover release button and lift off cover. (b) Remove
the carbon and main filter. Clean the main filter with a vacuum
cleaner fitted with a brush nozzle. Vacuum the grill inside the
filter housing. Lift the grill using the handle. Remove the wire
holder carefully with both hands keeping it level and upright.
Clean the inside of the air cleaner with a brush or a crevice
nozzle. If necessary, use a damp cloth with mild detergent.
Replace the wire holder carefully with both hands and close
the grill. (If the wire is broken please refer to the replacing corona
wire section.) (c) Replace the main filter. Make sure the guides
are properly set in the grooves when you put the filter back.
Replace the carbon filter and cover. Push the reset button to
cancel the clean filter indicator light.
(b)
(c)
Stage 3 Filter (Carbon Filter)
Replace every 3 to 6 months.
TROUBLESHOOTING
• If the fan does not operate, (i.e. If you cannot feel a low air current.), check that the power cable
is undamaged and that it is plugged in. Check that the cover and filters are correctly set. If the
fan still does not operate, contact the authorised Electrolux Service Station.
• If the Stage 2 filter does not get dirty or if the light indicator flashes, check if the corona assembly
has been dislodged from its operating position or the corona wire in the wire holder is broken.
If the assembly is in place, the wire is not broken and the light is still flashing, contact the
authorised Electrolux Service Station.
• A continuous crackling noise from the Stage 2 filter indicates the need for replacement. If this
does not remedy the problem, contact the authorised Electrolux Service Station. (A slight
hissing noise from the filter is normal, especially when it is new.)
• If clean filter indicator remains on after main filter has been cleaned, check to make sure the
reset button for filter replacement has been pushed.

REPLACING CORONA WIRE (Part No. 61915)
NOTE: The filtration system will not work without the corona wire correctly
installed.
The corona wire creates an electrical charge on the dirt particles. These particles are then
attracted to the oppositely charged main filter.
(a) Lift the grill using the green handle. (b) Carefully remove the corona wire holder by lifting it
out of the base.
NOTE: You must remove tape used to secure assembly during shipping before
the corona wire holder can be removed.
Changing the wire - Remove the broken wire. (c) Carefully replace the new wire as follows:
Secure one end of the wire into the groove. Bend the wire holder slightly and attach the other end.
