HOW YOUR AIR PURIFIER WORKS
This model air purifier incorporates a 2-stage cleaning
system to help clean the air that passes through the filter
in the unit (Fig. 1).
Stage 1: Odor Absorbing Pre-Filter
Stage 2: True HEPA Filter that captures
particles as small as 0.3 microns or larger

SET-UP
• Select a firm, level and flat location. For proper airflow, locate the unit at least 3 feet (1 M) from any wall
or furniture.
• When operating, large volumes of air are drawn toward the air purifier. Surrounding areas should be
cleaned and/or vacuumed frequently to prevent build-up of dust and other contaminates. If the unit is
placed on a light colored carpet, a small mat or rug should be used underneath to prevent permanent
staining. This is especially important in homes with contamination from smoking, fireplaces or where
candles are burned.
• Ensure the exit grille (front of the unit) faces away from the closest wall or furniture.
• Ensure no grilles are blocked.
INSTALL HEPA FILTERS
The True-HEPA Filters are supplied within the air purifier. They are wrapped to ensure
purity, and are labeled to help identify the proper replacement filter. (Type N ).
Fig. 2
• Make sure the air purifier is turn off and unplugged.
• Remove the rear grille by pressing the notch on the top of the rear grille and
pulling the grille towards you (Fig. 2).
• Remove the filters by gently pushing along the edge of the filter frame and
pulling it forward. Repeat for the second filter.
• Remove the protective wrap from the filters.
• Place the filters back into the air purifier housing and snap the rear grille back
into place.
NOTE: The pre-filter needs to be in position along the rear grille before snapping the grille back into place.
NOTE: The Top filter must be in place in order for the unit to operate.
OPERATION
Powering Up: (Fig. 3)
• Plug the air purifier into a grounded, working outlet. Once the unit
is plugged in, the back-lit Power Button icon ( ) will blink for
12 seconds indicating the unit is ready for operation.
• When the Power Button is pressed the following will take place:
° The LCD display and buttons will light up. The Oscillation, On/off,
Timer, and Timer +/– button lights will turn off after 3 seconds.
The LCD light will turn off after 8 seconds if no buttons are
pressed.
° The UV feature turns on.
° The air purifier will operate at a medium cleaning power level for
a few seconds and then automatically change to a low level.
° The continuous Run display turns on and rotates.
° The filter status display turns on. (Note: The 1st segment is
always filled in. Additional segments will fill in as the filter
gets dirty.)
° The “filters” and “UV Bulb” lights will be green. (Note: if they
are red, this indicates that the filters must be cleaned or UV
bulbs replaced.)

OPERATION (CONTINUED)
Changing the Cleaning Power Setting:
• This model has 12 air cleaning settings for specialized cleaning capability. To increase the cleaning
power, press the (+) button and to decrease the cleaning power, press the (–) button. The cleaning
power display “segments” will increase when power is increased and vice versa.
• Use a higher setting if you want to clean your room at a higher rate and use a lower setting for quieter
operation.
UV and Oscillation Options:
• Press the UV (
), or oscillate ( ) buttons to turn these functions on or off. The UV button will be
back-lit and the blue UV indicator light will illuminate when the UV feature is on.
(Note: UV bulbs are inside the product and the actual UV light
Fig. 4
cannot be seen.) The oscillate button will be back-lit and the unit
will oscillate when the oscillation feature is on.
Timer Operation:
• Once the air purifier is turned on, it can be programmed to turn off
automatically after a set amount of time (up to 18 hours).
• Press the Timer on\off button ( ). The default time of “9 hr” will
appear in the timer display (Fig. 4).
• If you want to increase or decrease the amount of time in which
the product will shut off, press the Timer (+) or (–) buttons.
• To turn off the timer mode, just press the Timer
on\off button ( ).
NOTE: Removing the rear grille or turning off the unit will cancel
the timer operation.
Filter Check Indicator:
• The True HEPA filters should be replaced approximately 1x per
year and the washable pre-filter should be cleaned about every
3 months depending on use. The Filter Status display shows
the approximate time left until the True HEPA filters need to be
replaced.
Fig. 5
• When the Filters need to be replaced, all of the Filter Status
segments will be filled in and the Filters button LED will change
from green to red (Fig. 5).
NOTE: If the odor reducing pre-filter is used in lieu of the
permanent washable pre-filter, it will need to be replaced
approximately every 3 months.
To RESET Either Electronic Filter Check:
When a filter monitor light remains on, it is time to replace the True
HEPA or Pre-filter and reset the filter monitor light. With the unit
powered on, press the lighted button with the end of a ball point pen
with the pen tip retracted and hold for approximately 2 seconds until
the light turns off (Fig 4). Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used), you may
need to check and replace the filters more or less frequently. If the True-HEPA filters are replaced before
the filter monitor light turns on, the filter monitor should be reset at the same time.
4
These cleaning intervals are intended as guidelines only. Performance of any filter media is dependent
upon the concentration of contaminates going through the system. High concentrations of contaminates
such as dust, pet dander and smoking will reduce the useful performance of the filter.
NOTE: None of the filters are washable. Do not immerse them in water.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My filter bar says my filter is still relatively clean but when I checked my filter, it was really dirty.
In conditions where smoke, pets or air with a lot of contaminants are present it is possible that the filter
could be dirty sooner than indicated on the indicator. The filter life indicator on your unit runs on a timer
and if there are more particles in your air than in an average home, your filter could capture airborne
particles sooner than indicated on the display. The indicator is intended to be used as a guideline and
individual environmental conditions will vary.
My unit will not turn on.
The air purifier has safety features to ensure that the unit is ready for operation. Check to make sure
both True HEPA filters are installed flush to the air purifier. Check to make sure the rear cover is
installed flush with the unit and is locked.
When do the UV bulbs need to be replaced?
The “Replace UV Bulb” message and light will turn on after 6-9 months of continuous use, so the bulbs
should be replaced at this time.
My Air Purifier is starting to make noise and the air output is less. What’s wrong?
The filters may be dirty. High amounts of contaminates can block the pores in the filter and stop the air
from moving through it. The filters should be cleaned or replaced.
How long should I run my Air Purifier?
For best results, you should operate your Air Purifier 24 hours a day when possible. This unit will be
more effective when doors and windows are closed.
Can I wash my True HEPA filter?
No. Washing the True HEPA filter will destroy it.
How does the electronic filter check work?
The filter check LED will change from green to red when it is time to check the filters after 3 months of
continuous operation of the air purifier.
How does the UV check light work?
The UV check light will change from green to red when it is time to change the UV bulbs. Follow the
instructions located in “Replacing the ultraviolet (UV) bulbs”.
