3-in-1 HEPA 16" Air Purifier
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1 Read all instructions before using your air purifier.
2 To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, plug your air purifier directly
into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
3 Remove the plastic bag from the HEPA filter before use.
4 Keep the power cord out of heavy-traffic areas.
5 To avoid fire hazards, NEVER put the power cord under a rug or near
heat registers, radiators, stoves, or heaters.
6 DO NOT immerse your air purifier in water or other liquids.
7 Do not use near water.
8 Supervise children or people who are disabled when your air purifier is
in use near them.
9 Always unplug your air purifier before moving or cleaning it, opening
the grill, changing the filter, and when it is not in use. When
unplugging, make sure you pull the plug and not the cord.
10 NEVER drop or insert any objects into the openings of your air purifier.
11 DO NOT operate your air purifier if the power cord or plug is damaged.
12 If the motor fan fails to operate or your air purifier has been dropped
or damaged in any manner, return your air purifier to the
manufacturer for examination and/or repair.
13 Use your air purifier only for intended household use as described in
this manual. Any other use is not recommended by the manufacturer
and may cause a fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. The use of
attachments not recommended or sold by Best Buy Purchasing, LLC.
may cause injuries.
14 DO NOT use outdoors.
15 NEVER place on a soft surface, such as a bed or sofa, as this could cause
your air purifier to tip over and may block the air inlet or outlet grills.
16 Keep your air purifier away from heated surfaces and open flames.
17 DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical
functions on your air purifier. Doing so may cause injuries and will void
your warranty. The inside of your air purifier contains no user
serviceable parts. All servicing should be performed by authorized
service personnel.
18 DO NOT place anything on top of your air purifier.
19 Always turn your air purifier off before unplugging it.

20 The ionizer in your air purifier 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, use the ionizer in well-ventilated areas with
the fan on.
21 Your air purifier should only be used in a room with temperatures
between 40~110°F (4~43°C).
22 WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, DO NOT
use your air purifier with any solid-state speed control device.
PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
PLUG SAFETY
YOUR AIR PURIFIER 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 in only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the power
outlet, reverse the plug and try again. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MODIFY THIS PLUG OR TO DEFEAT THIS SAFETY
FEATURE IN ANY WAY.
CORD SAFETY
•
•
•
4
The length of the power cord on this air purifier was selected to reduce
tangling or tripping hazards.
If a longer power 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 your air purifier (see the rating label on
the bottom of your air purifier).
Do not drape an extension cord over a countertop or tabletop where it
can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.

Understanding the filter indicator
The filter indicator shows you when to replace your filters:
FILTER INDICATOR
MEANING
Green LED
Normal operation.
Blue LED flash
Check and replace the pre-filter.
Red LED flash
Check and replace the HEPA filter.
Blue/red LED flash
Check and replace both filters.
Note
There is a sticker on your air purifier to remind you
what each color indicates.
Understanding the ionizer
The ionizer releases negative ions through the filtered air that will attach
to positively-charged particles, such as dust and pollen, and it will cause
the particles to settle out of the air. It automatically turns on when you
turn the speed control knob to the speed you want.
Caution
The ionizer in your air purifier 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, use the ionizer in well-ventilated areas with
the fan on.
Notes
• The ionizer may produce an occasional popping
or cracking sound. This is normal and occurs
when a small buildup of ions is discharged.
• You may notice more particles on the surfaces in
your home or on the filtered air outlet of your air
purifier. This is normal and means the particles
are being removed from the air.
• Excessive amounts of pet dander, dust, or smoke
may interfere with the ionization process.
• The ionizer cannot be turned off.
