IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons. These precautions include: 1. Read all instructions before using the appliance. 2. To avoid fire or shock hazard, plug the appliance directly into a 120V AC electrical outlet. 3. If the filter is covered by a bag when shipped, remove plastic bag before use. 4. Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. To avoid fire hazard, NEVER put the cord under rugs, near heat registers, radiators, stoves, or heaters. 5. To protect against electrical hazards, DO NOT immerse the appliance in water or other liquids. Do not use near water. 6. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children, or disabled persons. 7. Always unplug the air purifier before moving or cleaning the unit, opening the grill, changing the filters and whenever the unit is not in use. To disconnect the unit, be sure to pull the plug and not the cord. 8. NEVER drop or insert any objects into the openings of the unit. 9. DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug. 10. If the motor fan fails to operate or the unit has been dropped or damaged in any manner, return appliance to manufacturer for examination. 11. Use appliance only for intended household use as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. The use of attachments may cause hazards and is not recommended or sold by Jarden Consumer Solutions. 12. DO NOT use outdoors. 13. NEVER place on a soft surface such as a bed or sofa as this could cause the unit to tip over and block the air inlet or outlet grills. 14. Keep unit away from heated surfaces and open flames. 15. DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void your warranty. 16. DO NOT place anything on top of unit. 17. NEVER use detergents, gasoline, glass purifier, furniture polish, paint thinner, or other household solvents to clean any part of the appliance. 18. Always turn the appliance off before unplugging it. 19. The ionizer in this appliance produces less ozone than the UL established limits of 50ppb (parts per billion). However, in high concentrations, ozone can be harmful to birds and small pets. To prevent ozone buildup, we suggest using the ionizer in well ventilated areas with the fan on. 20. This appliance should only be used in a room with temperatures between 40° F and 110° F. 21. WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, DO NOT use this appliance with any solid-state speed control device. PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MODIFY THIS PLUG OR DEFEAT THIS SAFETY FEATURE IN ANY WAY. FEATURES CORD SAFETY • The length of cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce tangling or tripping hazards. • If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the air purifier (see rating label marked on bottom of the product). • Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over. IONIZER This appliance has an optional ionizer feature which, when turned on, releases negative ions into outgoing filtered air to help the air purification process. What Are Ions? Ions are tiny particles that carry a positive or negative charge. They exist naturally around us: in the air, water, and ground. Both positive and negative ions are colourless, odour, and harmless. How Does The Ionizer Work? Negative ions help air purification 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. These larger particles are then more easily captured by the filter system. Important Notes: Your ionizer may produce an occasional popping or cracking sound. This is normal and occurs when a small buildup of ions is discharged. After extended use, you may notice dust around the grills or rear panel. This is caused by negative ions exiting the air outlet, evidence of the ionizer’s air cleaning effectiveness. Follow the cleaning and maintenance instructions for appropriate cleaning method. Larger particles may be attracted to positively charged surfaces throughout the home, like walls or floors. This may occur more frequently when the filter has captured excessive amounts of particulates and needs to be cleaned. To help prevent particles from attracting to surfaces throughout your home: • You may want to run the ionizer less often. • Check the condition of the filter more frequently. CAUTION: The ionizer in this appliance produces less ozone than the UL established limits of 50ppb. However, in high concentrations, ozone can be harmful to birds and small pets. To prevent ozone buildup, we suggest using the ionizer in well ventilated areas with the air purifier fan on. TURBO, HIGH, MEDIUM, LOW AND QUIET SETTINGS For optimum air filtration, operate your air purifier continuously on the MEDIUM (2) setting. For quieter operation (such as in a bedroom), select the QUIET ( ) setting. When high levels of air pollution are present, select the HIGH (3) or TURBO ( ) setting to quickly circulate and filter the air in the room. 4-STAGE AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM Your air purifier uses a four-stage air purification system to help purify the air that passes through the filters (see Figure 1): Anti-microbial Grill - The plastic infused with antimicrobial additive to create a protective barrier against odour causing bacteria. Washable Foam Pre-filter – The pre-filter captures larger particles, thus extending the period between cleaning of the HEPA filter. Long life True HEPA filter - Long life True HEPA filter removes up to 99.97% of smaller visible and non-visible particles, as small as 0.3 microns in size, from the air passing through it. The long life filter allows for easy maintenance and eliminates the hassle of filter replacement. FEATURES - OPERATIONS Carbon Filter - Carbon filter absorbs and eliminates common household odour, such as garbage or nursery smells. To assemble carbon filter(s), remove from plastic bag and remove the HEPA filter(s) from unit. Adhere the hook fastener to the glue bead located on the exhaust side of the HEPA filter(s). Adhere the carbon filter(s) to the hook fastener and place the HEPA filter(s) back into unit with the carbon filter(s) facing the exhaust side. ASSEMBLY REQUIRED BEFORE USE 1.
