KNOW YOUR AIR PURIFIER
Americans spend about 90% of their lives indoors, and the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) estimates that, on average, indoor air is two to five times more polluted
than outdoor air. Air purifiers are designed to eliminate impurities in the air—even those
impurities which are so microscopic that they are invisible to see.
Ultraviolet Air Purifier
Various viruses and bacteria that contaminate the air can be destroyed with ultraviolet
light technology, installed in Crane’s Air Purifier. Not only the virus and bacteria the
entire pollen particles, molds and microns that are invisible to naked eye are also
eliminated by the ultraviolet technology.
The Importance of the AHAM Certification Seal
CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate, and is a measurement developed by AHAM (the
Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers). The CADR shows how much clean air an
air purifier/cleaner delivers to a room, measured in cubic feet per minute.
6
FEATURES
Crane’s 5 Level Filtration helps remove airborne allergens, bacteria,
viruses and germs before the air goes back into the room!
Level 1 Washable Particle Filter
The purpose of foam particle filter is to extend the
life of the HEPA filter by removing large particles
before they can get to the HEPA filter. You will find
visible dust, hair, and lint in the particle filter. By
keeping the particle filter clean you can dramatically
extend the life of your HEPA filter and improve the
overall efficiency of your air purifier. NOTE: See
Maintenance instruction for the Particle Filter.
Level 2 True HEPA Filter
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. The
inlet grill of your air purifier draws in dirty air.
Crane’s air purifier true HEPA filter removes at least
99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns.
Microns are used to measure the size of these
microscopic airborne particles.
Allergens such as pollen, smoke, animal dander,
mold spores, and dust get trapped in the HEPA
filter.
Level 3 Active Carbon Filter
The Active Carbon Filter (inside the HEPA filter)
captures particles as well as absorbs common
household odors caused from tobacco, pets,
garbage and cooking.
Level 4 Photocatalyst Filter
In conjunction with the internal germicidal UV light
the photocatalyst filter creates an advanced
oxidation that eliminates airborne odors and
neutralizes harmful fumes.
Level 5 Germicidal UV Light
The ultraviolet light prevents germs from growing in
the HEPA filter and kills viruses or bacteria along
with the other airborne pollutants and microns.
NOTE: Blue UV Indicator Light indicates that the UV
light is ON.

OPERATION AND USE
Before Use Instructions
1. Select a firm, level and flat surface to place the air purifier. For proper air flow,
locate the unit at least 3 feet from any wall or furniture.
2. Do not place unit in close proximity to electronic devices that are sensitive to
electrical fields.
3. Do not place unit on metal shelving. Air purifier may be placed on floor,
nightstand, table or desk. Make sure that the outlet grille faces away from the
nearest wall or furniture.
4. Make sure that the intake and outlet grilles are not blocked.
5. Plug into a grounded 120V outlet. See manual SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
6. Turn control knob to desired setting HIGH, MED, LOW.
Operating Instructions
1. Turn control knob to desired setting.
2. Select setting LOW for quieter operation or use in the
bedroom.
3. Select setting MED to operate the air purifier on a continuous
use.
4. Select setting HIGH when high levels of air pollutants are
present to quickly circulate and filter the room air.
5. The Red Air Purifier Power Light will illuminate red when
power is ON.
6. Blue Air Purifier Indicator Light will illuminate blue when
power is ON. NOTE: Both red and blue lights will illuminate
when power is ON. If the blue UV indicator light does not
illuminate blue when red power light is turned ON then the
UV light needs to be replaced (see page 9).
REPLACING THE HEPA FILTER
On an average the HEPA Filter needs to be replaced every 3-6 months. Filter life will
depend on air quality and usage.
1. ALWAYS turn off and unplug air purifier from power
outlet before replacing the filter.
2. Remove each of the filters from the unit by pulling
gently toward you.
3. To replace the HEPA filter, discard the old HEPA filter.
DO NOT ATTEMPT to clean the HEPA filter. Place the
washable particle filter back on the new HEPA Filter.
Insert the new HEPA filter into the unit by sliding it
into place.
4. To close the rear door, place bottom rear door tab into tab slot and close door.
DO NOT FORCE DOOR TO CLOSE! PLEASE NOTE that if there is any uneven
closure at the bottom of the rear door the door is not closed securely. You will
need to insert bottom tab again into slot and close door again. The rear door
must be evenly flush with the air purifier body
NOTE: Replacement HEPA Filter Set #HS-1934 (set includes HEPA filter with carbon
filter inside HEPA filter, particle filter and photocatalyst filter) can be purchased from the
same retailer you purchased the Crane Air Purifier.

REPLACING THE GERMICIDAL UV LIGHT
WARNING: Always make sure that the air purifier is turned OFF and UNPLUGGED
from power outlet before replacing UV light. Always use caution when handling the UV
light to prevent accidental breaking of the bulb. NEVER touch the glass part of the light.
Oil from fingers will reduce the germicidal performance of the UV light. Always use
gloves or handle the light only by the metal area on the light.
DO NOT use a vacuum to pick up broken bulb glass or handle broken bulb with your
hands. Sweep debris into a plastic bag and dispose properly. Contact your local waste
management authority for instruction regarding recycling and the proper disposal of the
old light(s).
The UV bulb is designed to provide approximately one year continuous operation. After
one year the UV Light’s effectiveness is greatly reduced. For maximum germicidal
protection replace after a year or if the blue UV light does not illuminate when the UV
switch is ON. Please refer to page 5 fig. 2.
NOTE: Refer to instruction manual Order Form to purchase replacement UV light.
