    If your air cleaner has a W8600E Indicator (shown on page 2), the WASH LED will light to remind you that a cell and prefilter washing is past due. When the WASH LED comes on, it means that the cell(s) are loaded with dirt to the point that air cleaning efficiency is diminished.
  • Page 9 Removing the electronic cell(s) and prefilter STEP 1 Open the door by turning the two door latches. STEP 2 The prefilter is held in place by a spring clip and a U-shaped channel. Lift the prefilter at the spring clip end and slide it out of the U-shaped channel.

  • Page 17: How Electronic Air Cleaning Works

    Generally, particles smaller than ten microns can be seen only with a microscope, except in very large concentrations such as a puff of smoke. Your electronic air cleaner can remove even smaller particles that can be seen only with an electron microscope.
  • Page 18 These particles are generated by normal household activities, and also enter the house from outside. That is why we recommend that you use the air cleaner as much as possible. CELL COLLECTOR PLATES...

  • Page 20 By comparison, an electronic air cleaner deposits contamination on the cell(s) and prefilter for easy cleaning. Another benefit of an electronic air cleaner is that it reduces excessive positive or negative ions in the air, while an air ionizer generates some ions.
  • Page 21 “white dust” If desired, the ozone generated by the air cleaner can be reduced by asking your dealer to adjust the air cleaner power supply to reduce ozone production. This adjustment will reduce ozone production about 20 to 25 percent, but will also reduce air cleaning efficiency about 7 to 10 percent.

    If the door is not closed, an interlock keeps the air cleaner OFF. 5. Check the neon light; if on, air cleaner is operating properly; if off, call for service. 1. If the electronic cell(s) are wet from washing, turn off the air cleaner for 2 to 3 hours.
