Brand new Austin air purifier smells bad

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is the second unit I get - I got an autimatic air purifier in fact this is my second unit because I thought first was defective - but when I run this $700 air purifier it smell! Has some kind of semi-chemicalish smell greensad.gif.

Has anybody with an Austin air deal with this? I'm afraid in sending it back after I get the same smell out of two units. Very dissapointed greensad.gif

Any others you would recommend?

Is it ionic?  Those smell rather unpleasant to me but it is how they are supposed to smell.

No it is not ionic - but it does seem to be a common thing.  The carbon and the potasium filters apparently give a smell.  I am trying to run it on high to see if gets rid of it soon - otherwise it is going back.

Austin Air Healthmate 2014

 

I do have the same kind of problem with my unit, smell like yeast.

 

I noticed if left for too long in one spot that smell become stronger. I'm no expert but, I don't think it's dangerous.

Beside that annoying smell, I fell that this air purifier work great. I breed better and it even remove diaper pale smell.

I sent it back - I bought through Allergy Buyers Club and they have a no questions asked return policy.   I need to do some more research and decide on that one again or another.
