NOT attempt to defeat or override this safety feature.
5. ALWAYS UNPLUG the air purifier while it is being cleaned.
6. DO NOT move or tilt the air purifier while it is in operation. Turn off and unplug
before moving.

READ AND SAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the QuietFlo Ultra HEPA Air Purifier from Hunter Fan Company.
You have purchased our latest development in portable air purification which has been designed
to improve the quality of the air that you breathe. The following innovative features are included
in your Hunter Air Purifier.
®
• High Particulate Efficiency: The HEPA filter will remove 99.97% of 0.7 micron particles
from the air that passes through the filter.
• Odor Removal: The activated carbon pre-filter helps remove odors such as cooking, smoke,
and pet smells from the air. It also traps lint, hair, and other large particles to help extend the
life and performance of the HEPA filter.
• Ionizer: The ionizer improves the quality of air in the room by releasing negative ions into
the air that attract positively charged dust, smoke, and pollen particles.
• Quiet: The air purifier has been designed to operate quietly and efficiently. You can choose
among three speeds to best meet your needs at different times.
• Filter Counters: Filter maintenance is critical to the performance of the air purifier. To help
you determine when to change the filters, the pre-filter and HEPA filter, the unit has built in
life counters that keep track of the life remaining of each filter.

How the QuietFlo Ultra HEPA Air Purifier System Works
®
As the air is pulled into the purifier, the activated carbon pre-filter absorbs odors and catches
large particles. Then, the air travels through the HEPA filter where the smaller particles are
collected. Then, the ionizer releases negative ions into the air that attract positively charged
dust, smoke, and pollen particles. Finally, the clean, purified air is released back into the
room.

Operation
Initial Operation
This section provides basic instructions on the use of your air purifier. After following these
initial directions, please continue reading this booklet to learn how to operate the more
advanced features of your air purifier.
Basic Operation of the Air Purifier:
1. Take the air purifier out of the box and remove the clear plastic protective bag.
Place the unit on a firm level floor.
2. Before turning on the air purifier, you need to confirm that the filters are firmly
in place and have not become loose during shipping. To check the filters, first
open the front grill. Release the front grill by placing your fingers under the
handle on the grill and pull forward, then up. Refer to Figs. 4 and 5.

THEN UP

3. Next, check the HEPA filter by pressing firmly on all four corners of the filter
to ensure that it is fully inserted into the filter opening.
4. The carbon pre-filter is mounted inside the front grill with hook tape. Confirm
that it properly covers the grill vents. You may notice a few black particles
coming off the pre-filter. Those particles are part of the odor-removing activated carbon and will be collected on the filter during use.

Operation
Filter Life Counters
The pre-filter and filter are critical to the proper operation of the air purifier. To help you
know when to change the filters, your Hunter Air Purifier has Filter Life Counters that will
monitor the life of your filter. Although the exact life of the filters depends on the environment, the table below gives typical usage times of the filters.
Table 2: Typical Usage Times of the Filters
Filter Type
Typical Usage
Activated Carbon Pre-Filter
2000 hours
HEPA Filter
8000 hours
The Pre-Filter and Filter indicators will turn on when the filters need to be replaced.
The values of the Pre-Filter and Filter Life Counters are stored in the air purifier’s
memory. The unit may be unplugged and moved or stored without losing the PreFilter and Filter Counter values.
To properly track filter usage, the Pre-Filter and Filter Life Counters should be reset each
time the filters are changed. Refer to Changing the Pre-Filter (pg. 10) or Changing the Filter
(pg. 11) for instructions on how to reset the counters.
Resetting the Air Purifier
In the unusual situation that the unit or the display is exhibiting erratic behavior, you may
want to reset the air purifier. If you still have problems after resetting the air purifier, please
contact Hunter for additional assistance (refer to Technical Assistance, pg. 14).
To Reset the Air Purifier:
1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds.
2. Plug the unit back in.

Operation
Using the Ionizer
Using the ionizer improves the quality of air in the room. Negative ions are released into the
air and positively charged dust, smoke, and pollen particles are attracted to the negative
ions. These particles settle out of the air and can be vacuumed up during normal cleaning.
These particles are also more easily captured by the HEPA filter as they pass through the
HEPA Air Purification System. To ensure the best air circulation in the room, we recommend that you place your air purifier six (6) inches away from any walls.
To turn the ionizer on or off:
1. To turn the ionizer on, press the IONIZER key. The Ionizer Indicator will
turn on.
2. To turn the ionizer off, press the IONIZER key. The Ionizer Indicator will
turn off.
When the ionizer is on, the blue LED will remain illuminated.

Air Purifier Maintenance
Cleaning Your Air Purifier
Proper maintenance of your Hunter Air Purifier will help ensure years of trouble free
service.
Follow these steps to properly maintain your air purifier:
1. Approximately every 90 days, the outside of the unit should be cleaned with a soft,
damp cloth.
2. If needed, the front grill can be removed from the unit and cleaned with soapy water.
Simply remove the pre-filter before exposing the grill to water.
3. Follow the instructions in Changing the Pre-Filter and Changing the Filter (pgs. 10 and
11) to determine when and how to replace the filters.
NOTES:
• The air purifier must be unplugged during the cleaning process.
• Be sure the unit is completely dry before plugging in and using.
• Never immerse unit in water.
Changing the Pre-Filter
When the Pre-Filter exceeds 2000 hours (refer to Filter Life Counters for additional information, pg. 8), the Pre-Filter indicator will turn on as a reminder that you should replace the
pre-filter. To maintain proper odor-removing capability and overall filtration performance,
the pre-filter should be changed every 2000 hours (approximately 3 months of use). If
necessary, the pre-filter can be changed more often. Proper maintenance of the prefilter will help extend the life of the HEPA filter. Refer to Obtaining Replacement Filters (pg. 13) if you need help finding replacement filters.
To change the pre-filter and reset the Pre-Filter Life Counter:
1. First, turn off and unplug the air purifier.
2. Next, remove the front grill. Place your fingers under the handle on the grill and
pull forward, then up. Refer to Figs. 4 and 5 (pg. 6).
3. The pre-filter is attached to the inside of the grill with hook tape. Pull gently
on the pre-filter to remove it. Refer to Fig. 9.
4. If needed, use a soft damp cloth to wipe off the grill.
5. Install the new pre-filter by placing it in the grill and pressing gently on the
pre-filter so that it adheres to the hook tape. You may notice a few black particles coming off the pre-filter. Those particles are part of the odor-removing
activated carbon and will be collected on the filter during regular use.

unit will not operate unless the grill is in the correct position.
7. Plug in the air purifier.
8. To reset the counter to zero hours and turn off the indicator, simply press
and hold the PRE-FILTER RESET key for three seconds. Then, you must
release the reset key and then press and hold the pre-filter reset key again
for three seconds to turn off the filter indicator.
Changing the Filter
When the filter exceeds 8000 hours (approximately 12 months of use), the Filter indicator
will turn on as a reminder that you should replace the filter. (Refer to Filter Life Counters
for additional information, pg. 8.) This is a reminder that you should check the filter and
replace if necessary. The proper time to change the filter depends on usage and the environment. Use the following list to help determine if the filter should be changed:
• Compare the color of the filter to the color coded chart on the inside of the housing. If the
filter color matches the darkest color on the chart, you should replace the filter.
• If you notice a decrease in air output or an increase in noise at any time during normal
operation, the filter may be clogged. Replace the filter to return to normal operation.
