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. Determine desired orientation: horizontal or vertical
positioning. Follow DUAL POSITION instructions.
2. Select a firm, leveled surface where there are no

all filters and grill and then the air intake grill (see
Figure 1).
NOTE: The air purifier will NOT operate unless the air
intake grill is properly installed on unit.

Store the suction cups and base cap along with these
instructions in case of alternate usage position in the
future.
Horizontal Position
To operate in the horizontal position, insert the small base
cap into the opposite side of the control panel (see Figure
3). Locate 4 suction cup feet. Position the air purifier so
that the air intake is facing you and the control panel is
to your left. Ensure the surface of the air purifier is free
from oil. Lightly dampen the suction cup surface with
water and attach suction cups evenly as shown in
Figure 4. Turn the air purifier over, and position unit
to sit on the suction cup feet (control panel will now be to
the right when facing the unit). Store the base and these
instructions in case of alternate usage position in the
future.
NOTE: If you change from a vertical tower position to a
horizontal position, you need to take out the base from
the unit first and then insert the base cap.
