Possible causes / solution
No, the filters that come with the unit will be ruined by water. Replace with new
washable filter. (ELAP45 filters are washable.)
No, vacuuming will spread the dust back into the air. Replace with new filter. (ELAP45
Washable Pre-Filter can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner or soft brush.)
The unit has been concealed in a tightly wrapped package of corrugated cardboard
and plastic. It may give off an odor; this should wear off in several days.
CADR ratings are provided from a controlled testing environment, if that environment
changes, it can affect the performance. If you have a slightly larger room than what the
CADR rating is, it will help improve the air, but take longer.
Allow proper air circulation around the sides and in front of the unit. If there
are doors or hallways it may reduce the airflow.
• Clear the sensor with a vacuum cleaner, as it may be blocked or clogged.
• Sometimes a can of compressed air may unclog the dust in the sensor.
The unit will capture most dust and particles, however with opening doors, windows,
central HVAC etc., there may still be some level of dust that you can see.
The filters are meant to rest inside the unit. Once the unit is turned on, the force of air
pulled through the machine will create a tight seal of the filters.
This is normal, especially at night when all environmental sounds are quiet, you may
hear the motor running in repetition.
• Make sure the air quality sensor is not blocked or clogged.
• Move the unit closer to the offending odors.
• Replace filters more frequently. They may have reached their capacity to absorb
pollutants.
Press the RESET FILTER button by gently inserting a paper-clip into the
RESET FILTER button hole. Hold for 3-5 seconds until a "beep" sounds to indicate the
unit has been reset.

speed until you change it.
