AIR CLEANER SAFETY

PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:

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 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 it, opening the grill, changing the filters, cleaning, or whenever the air cleaner is not in use. Be sure to pull by the plug and not the cord.

NEVER drop or insert any object into any openings.

DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, if motor fan fails to rotate, after the appliance malfunctions, or if it has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to manufacturer for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, 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 The Holmes Group may cause hazards.

DO NOT use outdoors.

NEVER block the air openings, grills/outlets or place on a soft surface such as a bed or sofa, as this could cause the unit to tip over, blocking the Air Intake Opening/Grill.

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 air cleaner with any solid-statespeed control device.

DO NOT place anything on top of unit.

The ionizer may cause a static charge to build up on the air output grill. A static-chargedelectric shock may be felt if the unit is not properly grounded. To avoid a shock, plug the unit'sthree-prongplug into a grounded outlet, or properly install a ground adaptor as described in this manual. The shock will not occur if the ionizer is off.

PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION

THIS PRODUCT IS EQUIPPED WITH A POLARIZED AC (Alternating Current) PLUG (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If the

plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact qualified personnel to install the proper outlet.

DO NOT DEFEAT THE SAFETY PURPOSE OF THIS POLARIZED PLUG IN ANY WAY.

CORD AND PLUG INSTALLATION SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

The length of cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord. 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 rating of the air cleaner. 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.

Thank you for choosing a Bionaire® air cleaner. To ensure the best performance from your air cleaner, please read and save the following instructions.

IONIZER

Your Air Cleaner has an independently controlled ionizer, which, when turned on, releases negative ions into outgoing filtered air. Ions are tiny particles that carry a positive or negative charge. These ions exist naturally around us,

in the air, water and ground. Both positive and negative ions are colorless, odorless and completely harmless. Negative ions help the air purification process 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 that are then more readily captured by the filter system, or they may be attracted to positively charged surfaces like walls or floors.

You may also note after extended use, that dust may have collected around the grills or front panel. This is from the ionization affect caused by the negative ions exiting from the air outlet. This is additional evidence of the air cleaning effectiveness of negative ions. The dust can be easily removed with a clean, damp cloth or soft brush.

NOTE: It is important to replace the HEPA-typefilter at the recommended intervals. Using the ionizer in conjunction with dirty filters may result in dirty particles exiting the air cleaner and being attracted to walls, carpets, furniture or other household objects. These dirty particles may prove very difficult to remove.

PRE-OPERATINGINSTRUCTIONS

1.Carefully unpack your Air Cleaner. Select a firm level place where there are no obstructions to the air inlet or filtered air outlet. A good location in a room is approximately 1 foot away from the wall, in a central location of your home.

2.Before initial use the plastic bag should be removed from the filters. To do so, open the front grill by pressing in on the Finger Tabs ( I ) on both ends of the unit and pull the Front Grill (A) towards you. This is easier when the unit is positioned horizontally (refer to Figure 2).

3.Remove HEPA-typeFilter (C) by gripping on both sides and pulling forward.

4.Remove protective plastic bag from the filter cartridge.

5.Re-inserttheHEPA-typefilter into the Air Purifier.

6.Securely re-attachthe Front Grill to the Air Cleaner.

4.To release negative ions into the filtered air, press the Ionizer Button (G) ( ) and the Ionizer Light (F) will illuminate.

5.For optimum filtration it is recommended to operate the Air Cleaner continuously. The motor is very durable and is designed to provide many years of service.

For continuous use, it’s recommended to operate the air cleaner at the MEDIUM setting. For quieter operation or use in a bedroom, select the LOW setting. When high levels of air pollution are present, select the HI setting to quickly circulate and filter the room air.
