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

2

3

BAP1700_08EM1.qxd:BAP170008EM1 V.qxd 4/14/08 9:09 AM Page 5

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.

CORD SAFETY

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

BAP1700_08EM1.qxd:BAP170008EM1 V.qxd 4/14/08 9:09 AM Page 7

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.
