AIR CLEANER SAFETY
READ AND SAVE
THESE IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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:
• Read all instructions before using the appliance.
• To avoid fire or shock hazard, plug the appliance
directly into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
• If the filter is covered by a bag when shipped, remove
plastic bag before use.
• 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.
• To protect against electrical hazards, DO NOT
immerse the appliance in water or other liquids. Do
not use near water.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is
used by or near children, or disabled persons.
• Always unplug the air cleaner 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.
• NEVER drop or insert any objects into the openings of
the unit.
• Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or
plug. If the motor fan fails to operate or the unit has
been dropped or damaged in any manner, return
appliance to manufacturer for examination and/or
repair.
• 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 not recommended or sold by Jarden
Consumer Solutions may cause hazards.
• DO NOT use outdoors.
• 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.
Keep unit away from heated surfaces and open flames.
DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or
mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void
your warranty. The inside of the unit contains no user
serviceable parts. All servicing should be performed
by qualified personnel only.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock,
DO NOT use this appliance with any solid-state speed
control device.
DO NOT place anything on top of unit.
NEVER use detergents, gasoline, glass cleaner,
furniture polish, paint thinner, or other household
solvents to clean any part of the appliance.
Always turn the appliance off before unplugging it.
The ionizer may cause a static charge to build up on
the air outlet grill. A static charge may be felt if the unit
is not properly grounded. To avoid a static charge,
plug the unit's three-prong plug into a grounded
outlet, or properly install a ground adaptor (see PLUG
SAFETY). The static charge will not occur if the ionizer
is off.
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 fan on.
This appliance should only be used in a room with
temperatures between 40° F and 110° F.
PLUG SAFETY
To reduce the risk of electric shock, THIS PRODUCT IS
EQUIPPED WITH A 3-PRONG PLUG, a grounding type
plug that has a third (grounding) pin.
The cord has a plug (A)
as shown. An adapter (C)
can be purchased for
connecting three-blade
grounding-type plugs to
two slot receptacles (B).
The green grounding wire
or lug extending from the

adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such
as a properly grounded outlet box. The adapter should
not be used if a three-slot grounded receptacle is
available.
This plug will only fit into a grounding type power outlet.
If the plug does not fit into the outlet, contact qualified
electrician to install the proper outlet.
This product is for use on 120 volts. DO NOT ALTER
THE PLUG IN ANY WAY.
automatically adjusts the fan speed to cycle between
low, medium and high speed to provide optimum
filtration based on air particulate concentration. It also
helps conserve energy by only operating the fan at higher
speeds when needed.
CORD SAFETY
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
colorless, odorless, and completely harmless.
• 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 cleaner (see rating label
marked on 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.
FEATURES
GET TO KNOW YOUR AIR CLEANER
Your Bionarie® air cleaner features a Permanent
HEPA-Type filter that removes up to 99% of airborne
dust and pollen as small as 2 microns and helps reduce
smoke, mold spores and pet dander from the air passing
through the filter.
• Permanent filters can be vacuumed every few months
for easy cleaning.
• Washable pre-filter captures larger particles and
extends the permanent filter’s cleaning cycle.
• Optional ionizer naturally improves performance and
helps freshen the air.
• Slim tower design allows placement in almost any
area of the room.
AIR QUALITY PARTICLE SENSOR
Your Bionaire® air cleaner includes a particle sensor that
measures indoor air quality. When set to auto mode, it
4
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.
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. The 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 front panel.
• This is caused by negative ions exiting the air outlet,
evidence of the ionizer’s air cleaning effectiveness.
• You can remove the dust with a soft brush or clean,
damp cloth.
Larger particles may be attracted to positively charged
surfaces throughout the home, like walls or floors.
• This may occur more frequently when the filter is
nearing the end of its useful product life and unable to
capture as many charged particles.
• Excessive amounts of pet dander, dust, or smoke
may decrease the life expectancy of the filter(s) and
interfere with the ionization process.

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(s) 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 fan on.
IMPORTANT: Always clean the PERMAtech® filter at the
recommended intervals (See CLEANING THE
PERMAtech® FILTER). Using the ionizer with dirty filters
may result in dirty particles exiting the air purifier and
attracting to walls, carpets, furniture, or other household
objects. These dirty particles may prove difficult to
remove.
HEPA-TYPE PERMAtech® FILTER
The PERMAtech® filter allows easy maintenance and
eliminates the hassle of filter replacement. HEPA-type
(High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are designed to
remove up to 99% of airborne pollutants, at 2 microns or
larger, from the air that passes through them. These include
tobacco smoke, household dust, pet dander and pollen.
FILTER INDICATOR
The filter indicator light eliminates guesswork by letting
you know when it is time to clean the filters.
TIMER
The timer allows you to run the air cleaner at your
convenience, for up to 8 hours, and automatically turns
the power off when time is up, to help reduce energy
costs.
HIGH /MEDIUM, AND LOW SPEED SETTINGS
For optimum air filtration, operate your Bionaire® Air
Cleaner continuously on the HI setting. Its rugged motor
has been designed to give many years of use. For quieter
operation (such as in a bedroom), select LOW setting.
