Cleaning Instructions For Alpine Units:

1) Your unit can be cleaned internally with a damp cloth. You can also put your vacuum cleaner on exhaust and blow the unit out of dust particles.

2) The rear metal mesh lint screen can simply be rinsed with clear water or washed with warm soapy water if necessary, then rinsed and dried completely.

3) The ozone plates should be removed and scrubbed with a toothbrush in ammonia and hot water, then completely rinsed and dried. Make sure plates are completely dry before using in a unit. Wet or damp plates will cause arching and can damage the plates and make them unusable.

Note: If an existing odor remains within the unit after cleaning, place the unit in the box it was shipped in or an equivalent size box. Operate the fan control on low, purifier control on high for an hour or more with the box shut. This will sanitize the unit as well as reduce odors.

Troubleshooting Guide:

1.) I have plugged in the unit, turned "ON" the power switch and nothing happens.

A. Make sure the electrical outlet is capable of providing power to the unit.
B. Check the metal mesh lint screen located at the back of the machine to ensure
that the safety switch activator clip pushes the safety switch forward. (Not Down)
C. Check to see if the proper fuse is installed and that it is serviceable.
D. Ensure that the fuse cap is completely seated and secured in its receptacle.

2. The fan is operating although the unit won't produce any ozone.

A. Check the ozone plate(s) for serviceability. If they are cracked or broken, the ozone plate(s) will require replacement. Ensure maintenance procedures required for the ozone plate(s) have been performed according to the "Maintenance" section in the respective unit's Owner's Manual. Electrical stainless steel contacts are not contacting the screen portion of the Ozone plate(s). Inspect the unit for any loose connections.
B. Do not attempt to disassemble the unit, due to the Limited Warranty of the product.

3. How am I able to know if the Radio Frequency Ionizer is working?

A. Current models with the RF Ionizer system have a neon light bulb mounted on the base of the RF antenna. When the power switch to the unit is turned ON, the neon light bulb will illuminate, indicating that the RF Ionizer is functioning normally. A voltage tester can be used to test non-current models by checking the RF Ionizer function.
B. You can use a voltage tester for non-current models; it is not used for measuring ion output, but rather for detecting a signal that is generated by the ion circuit (Ion Light Tester - Item # 69110 - is available through the order Line Department). If the voltage tester bulb illuminates to any degree, the RF ion generating circuit is functioning normally. The brightness in which the bulb illuminates has nothing to do with the number of ions being produced. The neon bulb when illuminated to any degree for the current models, or non-current units while tested, simply indicates normal RF ion system operation.
C. To test the RF ion generator with the Ion Light Tester, take hold of the Wire leads to the voltage tester device, and position the bulb end of the tester near the RF Ionizer antenna inside of the unit. The safety switch located where the activator clip on the rear metal mesh lint screen would normally be positioned when installed must be pressed forward in order for the unit to turn "ON" while conducting this test.

4. The Ozone Plate(s) are making a noise, and appear to be arching or sparking. What is causing this?
Check the ozone plate(s) for serviceability. If they are cracked or broken, the ozone plate(s) will require replacement.
