If you’re looking for tips to troubleshoot your Greenote air purifier that won’t turn on, you’re on the right page.
In the following paragraphs, I’ll explain some reasons behind this issue and what you can do to get your air purifier to work properly again.
First off, power issues are usually the culprit when a Greenote air purifier is not turning on. This might be in the form of a defective power plug, faulty power socket, or inaccurate power rating. In that case, you will need to check the plug and power outlet to fix the problem.
If you are not sure how to do this, keep reading to see details of how to troubleshoot your Greenote air purifier.
How to Fix ‘Greenote Air Purifier Not Turning On’ Issues
Inspect the Power Cord
One of the most common reasons Greenote air purifiers will refuse to turn on is a faulty power cord. When the cord is not working, it will become impossible to supply the appliance with the electricity it requires to power on.
If you check your power plug and could find some physical signs of damage, you don’t need to look for other reasons for the problem. You have just found it.
In this case, you will need to replace the power plug. Check the user manual that came with the purifier to know the right cord specification to buy. Once you get a new power cord, your purifier should be up and running again.
But if replacing your power cord does not fix the problem, then check the other fixes mentioned below.
Check the Power Outlet
Another reason your Greenote air purifier isn’t turning on is the power outlet. A faulty power outlet will likely not be able to supply your purifier with the correct amount of electricity it needs to run.
So, if your air purifier is not turning on, check if the outlet is working fine. You can plug another device into the outlet and wait to see if the new device powers on. If it doesn’t, then the outlet is bad.
Switch your purifier to another location in the house and reconnect it to a different power outlet to fix the issue.
Overheating: Wait a few Minutes
Your Greenote air Purifier may sometimes overheat due a faulty power source, filter obstruction, a power surge, etc.
When this happens, your Greenote air purifier’s safety feature will shut down the unit when. And it will refuse to come back on until the unit cools down.
If your purifier won’t turn on, overheating might be the reason. So, wait for a while to allow the unit to cool down. Then you can turn it back on later.
Check the Power Rating
The power rating of your purifier is the electrical power required to make the appliance function properly. You can always check the purifier’s user manual for this information.
To make your purifier work at its best, its power rating and that of the outlet to which it is plugged must match. An inaccurate power rating can damage the appliance, so the unit may refuse to turn on to avoid that.
So, if your Greenote air purifier is not turning on, check and be sure it’s connected to a power outlet that matches its power rating.
Clean the Air Filter
A dirty or clogged air filter can also prevent the air purifier from turning on. These filters are what trap dust, debris, and dirt in the purifier, preventing them from getting into your home.
However, filters can get clogged over time, making the unit malfunction. That is why it’s recommended you clean your air filter at least twice a year.
If it’s been a long time since you cleaned your air filter, that may be the reason your purifier is not turning on. So, bring out the filter from the unit and clean it. Rinse it in cold water if the filter is waterproof. Otherwise, use a vacuum cleaner.
Leave it to dry for about 24 hours, and then put it back in the unit. Now, try to turn on the purifier—the problem should be fixed by now.
Check if Your Filter is Correctly Positioned
Incorrect air filter placement in your purifier can cause some of the controls to be insensitive, including the power button. Because of that, the purifier may not turn on.
So, check the manual to see the right way to fit the air filter in the chamber.
The fixes mentioned above should help get your purifier to turn on and start purifying the air in your room again. However, if none of them helped fix the problem, you may need to contact Greenote customer support for help.
If you are still covered by warranty, they may suggest a replacement. On the other hand, you can get a trained technician to check the purifier.
