How to Clean the Fan on New Comfort Air Purifiers

In this video, we go over cleaning the fan our New Comfort Air Purifiers. If your purifier is starting to get dusty or dirty, it’s time for a cleaning!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

  

Instructions

 

First, we’ll take a look at an ozone generator. To access the fan you’ll need to take off the top cover. There are screws on the sides and top handle portion. Once the screws are removed you can take the top handle off and then remove the top cover.

 

This is a great time to not only clean the fan, but to clean everything else on the inside. To clean the fan you can use an air compressor, canned air, rag or a duster brush.

 

Now we’ll show you how to access the fan on a 6 stage New Comfort air purifier. If you have a front grill, accessing the fan is going to be a breeze.

 

On some models there is a notch on the bottom of the grill where you can get your fingers under. Then you can just pop the grill off.

 

 

If you don’t have a notch you can use a flat head screwdriver to get between the case and the grill and pop it off that way.

 

Once it’s off you have access to the fan. You can use an air compressor, canned air, rag, or duster brush to clean it.

How to Clean a Water Based Air Purifier

In this video, Kyle teaches us how to easily clean almost any water-based air purifier!

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your machine.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your machine, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

Instructions

 

For our demonstration, we’ll be using a Prolux water-based air purifier.

 

As you can see, the bowl has a lot of hard water on the inside.

 

We’re going to submerge the bowl in a bucket of hot water. If you’re at home you can use a sink.

 

Once it is completely submerged you’re going to add a cup of distilled white vinegar and let it soak for 30 minutes.

 

After 30 minutes you can remove the bowl and wipe it down. You can rinse it with water if you’d like, but it’s not necessary. It should look pretty much brand new!

 

Here’s another trick to cleaning not only the bowl, but the underside of the motor. Fill the bowl to the fill line with a mix of warm water and vinegar. The put the top portion back on.

 

Then plug it in and let it run for about 12 hours. Then, just empty the water bowl and wipe everything down!

Replacing Latches on Any Rainbow E Series Vacuum Cleaner 

Is your Rainbow vacuum cleaner not staying latched to your water bowl? Don't let a cheap part ruin your vacuuming experience. In this video, we will show you how easy it is to replace broken or worn out latches.

 

Important Safety Tips

  • Always make sure your machine is unplugged and the power button is turned off, before servicing your vacuum.
  • Always make sure your hands are dry and free from moisture before servicing your machine.
  • Be sure to wear gloves when servicing your machine to prevent any cuts or scrapes.
  • If you are uncomfortable working on your vacuum, please don’t hesitate to contact us at service@greatvacs.com and we can help you through the process or you can send it into us to fix it for you. 

 

Tools

  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Metal pick

 

Instructions

 

The first thing that you will need to do is remove these two plates. They are held on by two screws each.

 

We will start with the harder side first. This one has the safety switch behind it. You will need to be sure not to lose this tab!

 

Using your Phillips head screwdriver, remove the screws.

 

 As you pull the plate out, pay attention to the tab for the safety switch. You’ll need to remember where it goes since it almost always falls out.

 

The plastic tab looks like the picture above.

 

Now we are ready to remove the latch. If you look closely you’ll see a brass pin.

 

One end of the pin has splines and the other is smooth.

 

 

Take your metal pick or hook and press on the smooth end.

 

Once the pin has popped through the other side you can remove the latch. There will be a spring that goes with the latch as well.

 

Take the latch spring and bend the ends in toward each other.

 

This will make installation easier, because now you can put the spring on the latch mount and it will have tension to hold itself in place.

 

Take your new latch and line it up with the curved end pointing down. Be careful not to knock the spring out.

 

Now take the pin and slide it back in. There will still be a bit sticking out.

 

Take your flat head screwdriver and press the pin all the way in.

 

Now that the latch is installed, we’re ready to put the plate back in. Since this is the plate with the safety switch tab go ahead and grab it. The tab only goes in one way – the wings facing out. A trick to getting it to stay in place is to use a little petroleum jelly or grease!

 

Take your plate and line everything up. Then replace the screws.

 

Once that’s done press the safety switch to make sure it’s still working. Time to move on to the next plate!

 

The next plate is similar to the first. Start by removing the two screws. This one is easier since you don’t need to worry about any tabs or switches.

 

Then remove the plate.

 

Repeat the steps for replacing the latch as above.

 

Now you can line the plate up and slide it back into place.

 

Reinstall the two screws and you’re done!
