    My Philips Air Purifier produces a bad or unpleasant smell

    If your Philips Air Purifier produces an unpleasant smell, there might be some possible causes. Find out here how to resolve this.

    Plastic smell produced during initial usage

    The first few times you use your air purifier, it may produce a plastic smell.

    Do not worry, this is normal and will fully disappear within a few days.

    However, if the appliance produces a burnt smell, we recommend you to contact us.

    The filter is dirty

    When your air purifier's filter (A and B in the image below) is dirty, it might cause a dusty odor.

    In this case, please replace the filter.

    Filter and pre-filter location in Philips Purifiers

    When the filter absorbs gases to its maximum capacity, it may produce a dusty odor.

    We strongly recommend a replacing the filter when indicated (please check specific indications for your purifier model in the user manual).

    Do not clean, wash or vacuum clean this filter.

    The pre-filter is dirty

    Your Philips air purifier might produce an unpleasant smell when the pre-filter (C in the image above) is dirty.

    The pre-filter can (and should) be washed monthly. Please check the user manual to know how to wash the pre-filter for your specific model (for some purifiers you may need to wash it under the tap and for others you may need to vacuum it).
