Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchase the A350 from this corporation in June. I worked great for the first 3 to 4 months. I began noticing after this that the air purifier was blowing out dusty air. After inspecting the unit I realized that the inside and fan within the unit (beyond the air filter) were dirty. I contacted the company and was given a shipping label to return the unit back to them for inspection and service. After about 3 weeks I received the same unit back with the excuse that the filter caused a problem, any way got this on 12/**/13 and it was exactly the way that I sent back to **** corporation. They gave me a new filter and that was it! Still dirty and blowing dusty air out on startup. There are dirt marks coming out of where the clean air is suppose to be coming through. Dirt should not be getting past the air filters or this unit is merely a $500.00 fan. I had a lot of faith in this company, now I am stuck with a filthy so called air purifier. So anyone seeing this write up and you have purchased one of their purifiers needs to shine a flashlight into the area behind the filters and run your finger onto the fan blades with the machine unplugged. Thank you.

Desired Settlement: A refund, I had to go out and buy another purifier from ******* due to having severe vertigo from allergies while waiting for the unit to come back three weeks later. I also don't have any faith in this brand of purifier anymore and what would be the sense of getting another with the same problem down the road.

Business Response:

After speaking with my Customer Service department I was informed they are already working with this client.  We received the unit back, cleaned it, inspected it, and returned the unit to client for review.   The client states the product still did not meet her environmental requirements so we have offered her to return the unit for a full refund.  The client is happy and satisfied with the resolution as confirmed by a call from us to her this morning.

 Please let me know if this resolves this matter on your end or if you need additional information.   And thank you for the call about it being outstanding on your books, and  for updating the email records so I will receive further communication from you directly.

Thanks,
