AIR CLEANER SAFETY

PLEASE 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, including the following:

Read all instructions before using appliance.

To avoid fire and shock hazard, plug the air cleaner and EnviroCheckTM Wireless Air Quality Center directly into 120V AC electrical outlets.

If the filter is covered by a bag when shipped: remove plastic bag before use.

Keep the cords out of heavy traffic area. To avoid fire hazard NEVER put cords 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 or EnviroCheckTM Wireless Air Quality Center before moving it, opening the grill, changing the filters, cleaning the IR Lens or whenever the appliances are 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 the intended household use as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electrical 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, or place on soft surface, such as bed or sofa, as this could cause the unit to tip over thus blocking the air intake opening.

EnviroCheckTM Wireless Air Quality Center should only be used in a room with temperatures between 40° F and 110° F

Keep appliances away from heated surfaces and open flames.

DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical functions on these appliances. Doing so will void the warranty. The inside of these appliances contain no user serviceable parts. All servicing should be performed by qualified personnel only.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, DO NOT use these appliances with any solid-state speed control device.

DO NOT place anything on top of these appliances.

PLEASE SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION

THIS PRODUCT IS EQUIPPED WITH A POLARIZED 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.

The length of the cord used on this product 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 purifier. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord where it cannot be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.

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 onization 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 filter 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-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

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.Pull air inlet grill towards you by grasping the finger tabs on both sides.

3.Remove filter by gripping on both sides and pulling forward.

4.Remove protective plastic bag from the filter cartridge.

5.For the BAP1242, BAP1412 and BAP1422, the filter should easily slide onto the filter hang tab with only a small amount of pressure. Gently slide the filter onto the rail (See Figure 1).

NOTE: The side with the white filter should face inward.

6.Replace air inlet grill back onto unit securely.

DO NOT POINT OUTLET TOWARDS WALL.

Figure 1

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1.Plug into a 120V AC electrical outlet.

2.Select the desired operating speed. Bionaire® Air Cleaners have three speed settings. You can select from HIGH, MEDIUM or LOW by moving the switch to the desired setting.

3.To release negative ions into the filtered air, move the ionizer switch to ON and the light will illuminate.

4.For optimum air filtration, it is recommended to operate the air cleaner continuously. Its rugged motor has been designed to give many years of use.

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 HIGH setting to quickly circulate and filter the room air.

CLEANING/MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS

Cleaning Instructions

Turn off and unplug the unit before cleaning.

1.The outside of the air cleaner can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth.

2.The air inlet grill can be removed and washed in warm soapy water (not dishwasher safe). Dry before replacing in the unit.

3.The top air outlet grill can be cleaned of dust with a small soft brush.

WARNING: Do not allow moisture to come in contact with the main housing of the air cleaner.

FILTER REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS

1.Filter Check Indicator – there are two different types of indicators used in our air purifiers. Your air cleaner may have one of the following: a filter condition sticker (for BAP1242, BAP1412 and BAP1422) that serves as a color coded reference point or an indicator light (BAP1422) that illuminates when it is time to change the filter.

2.Every few weeks, check the condition of the filters.

3.Remove the air inlet grill. Remove and examine the foam pre-filter. If it has collected a noticeable amount of dust or lint, remove it from the inlet of the grill and wash it in warm soapy water. Rinse and drip dry the pre-filter thoroughly before replacing it into the inlet of the grill.

4.With the front grill removed, check the condition of the filter. If the filter is dirty, remove the used cartridge and properly dispose of it. Do NOT try to wash and re-use the filter. Replace with a new filter, removing the protective polybag before inserting into the air cleaner.

NOTE: The side with the white filter should face inward.

5.Units which have an indicator light must be reset once the filter has been replaced. Reset indicator by inserting a small object (such as a pin or paperclip) into the hole marked RESET.

6.Filter Life – Under normal conditions of continuous use, the filter will operate efficiently for 2-3 months.

Replacement filters are available from your local supplier or by calling 1-800-253-2764.
