User Guide for Air Purifier



This model air purifier incorporates a 2-stage cleaning system to help clean the air that passes through the filter in the unit (Fig. 1).

Stage 1: Odor Reducing Pre-Filter

Stage 2: True HEPA Filter that captures particles as small as 0.3 microns or larger


• Select a firm, level and flat location.

• When operating, large volumes of air are drawn toward the air purifier. Surrounding areas should be cleaned and/or vacuumed frequently to prevent build-up of dust and other contaminates. This may also help prolong the life of the filter. If the unit is placed on a light colored carpet, a small mat or rug should be used underneath to prevent permanent staining. This is especially important in homes with contamination from smoking, fireplaces, or where candles are burned.

• Ensure the front of the unit faces away from the closest wall or furniture.

• Ensure no grilles are blocked.


The True HEPA Filters and Odor Reducing Pre-Filter are supplied within the air purifier. New air purifiers have their filters wrapped to ensure purity, and are labeled to help identify the proper replacement filter. (Type True HEPA Filter; Type Odor Reducing Pre-Filter or Household Gas & Odor Reducing Pre-Filter)

• Before using your new air purifier you must remove the wrappers covering the filters and Pre-Filter. Make sure the air purifier is OFF and unplugged. Press the two hand symbols ( ) on the front grille to release it from the unit and pull the grille toward you to remove it (see Fig. 2). Grasp the sides of the filter frame near its top end and pull outward. Repeat for the second and third filter if applicable.

• Remove protective wrap from the filters (including the Pre-Filter) that have been supplied with your air purifier.

• Place the HEPA filter(s) into the air purifier housing. Ensure that the removal “pull” tabs are facing outward (this will facilitate filter removal later). Place the Pre-Filter on top of the HEPA filter(s). Tuck the edges of the Pre-Filter into the tabs that are located around the edges of where the HEPA filter(s) are inserted. This will hold the Pre-Filter securely in place.

• Replace the front grille by placing the tabs on the bottom of the grille into the slot(s) on the unit. Gently push the top of the grille into place by pressing on the hand symbols () secure in place.

These air purifier models each have two electronic filter checks to remind you when to check and replace the True-HEPA filters and the Odor Reducing PreFilters based on the air cleaner’s hours of use.

When the True HEPA filter(s) and/or the Pre-Filter need to be replaced, the “Check Filter” or “Check Pre-Filter” light will illuminate (Fig. 7).

You should periodically check these filters. Depending on operating conditions, the True-HEPA filters should be replaced every 12 months, and the Odor Reducing Pre-Filters every 3 months, especially if there have been heavy odors and particles in the home.

To RESET Either Electronic Filter Check:

After you have replaced the appropriate filter(s) the “Check Filter or “Check Pre-Filter” light will remain on until it is reset. With the unit powered on, press the lighted button and hold for approximately 2 seconds until the light turns off. The electronic filter check is now reset. Depending on individual usage (environment and hours used), you may need to replace filters more or less frequently.

NOTE: If you change the Pre-Filter or Filter before the Electronic Filter Check lights are illuminated, it is possible to re-set the light indicators. With the unit plugged in, but NOT powered on, press and hold each button individually for at least 5 seconds. This will illuminate the indicator light. After the light turns on, individually press and hold the “Check Filter” or “Check Pre-Filter” button until each light goes off. At this point, the filter indicator will be re-set to it’s original “clean” status.

These cleaning intervals are intended as guidelines only. Performance of any filter media is dependent upon the concentration of contaminates going through the system. High concentrations of contaminates such as dust, pet dander and smoking will reduce the useful performance of the filter.

NOTE: None of the filters are washable. Do not immerse them in water.


See INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS on page 3 of this manual.

You may be able to purchase Honeywell replacement True-HEPA filter for your air purifier at the store where you purchased your air purifier or they can be ordered directly from Kaz USA, Inc., the licensee of Honeywell air purifiers at replacementfilters. If you have any questions, contact Kaz Consumer Services at 1-800-477-0457.

Please note that each model series takes a different number of HEPA filters: HPA090 and HPA100 Series use 1 HEPA Replacement Filter, HPA200 Series use 2 HEPA Replacement R Filters , HPA300 Series use 3 HEPA Filters.


The odor reducing pre-filter not only helps reduce odors, but also helps capture large airborne particles that enter the grille. This Pre-Filter should be replaced every 3 months, as it will become covered with particles and fibers that will reduce filtration performance.

Use the specially designed Type Odor A Reducing Pre-filter or the Type Household Gas & Odor Reducing Pre-filter, available where the True HEPA filters are sold and from Kaz at: replacementfilters or by calling Kaz Consumer Relations at 1-800-477-0457.


We recommend that you clean the air purifier at least once every 3 months and before extended storage. Use only a dry cloth to wipe the external surfaces of the air purifier.


If your Air Purifier will not be used for more than 30 days, we recommend that you:

• Remove the True-HEPA Filters from the unit.

• Wrap the True-HEPA Filters in an air tight plastic bag.

• Remove the Odor Reducing Pre-filter and place it in an air tight plastic bag.


My Air Purifier is starting to make noise and the air output is less. What’s wrong?

The filters may be dirty. High amounts of contaminates can block the pores in the filter and stop the air from moving through it. Replace the Filters.

How long should I run my Air Purifier?

In general, the unit will be most effective when doors and windows are closed. It is recommended that you run your air purifier while you are at home to clean the air.

Can I wash any of the filters in my Air Cleaner?

No. Washing either filter will ruin it.


If you would like your air purifier to remain effective at reducing household odors, and/or household gases (VOCs) and to operate most effectively, you should replace the Odor Reducing Pre-Filter once every 3 A months. This Pre-Filter is available as the Odor Reducing Pre-Filter model HRF-AP1 or you may use model HRF-APP1 for Household Gas & Odor Reduction.

To order replacement filters for your air purifier, go to replacementfilters or call 1-800-477-0457.

Honeywell HPA300 Questions and Answers

#1 Do you let this run continuously day and night or only certain times of the day?
I run mine 4-6 hrs a day or night and some days I forget to run it. When my furnace runs it seems to do a good job circulating and filtering the air.

#2 how long in average use (lets say 3 or 4 daily hours) the filters last?
We run ours 24 hours a day, a/c on and windows closed. The large filter is supposed to last approximately a year and the pre-filters are supposed to last 3-6 months. I am sure that it depends on the amount of dust, etc in your air.
