    Default Ongoing faulty Fellowes Aeramax DX95

    Hi all!

    So I purchased an air purifier from Amazonicon, it's a Fellowes AeraMax DX95, it cost me around 199 in total.

    It was bought in October 2016.

    I've had the device replaced 2 times now, due to ongoing issues that I and others have, which make the device unusable.

    The main faults that I and others have noticed, is there's a capacitor inside which eventually blows after 6 months+, rendering the device unusable.

    This happened on both devices I received and now I'm on my third one, it's got the same symptoms as the first two

    Namely at random there will be a beep, as if someone has pressed the fan button, the speed will then increase to the next level, requiring you to reset it back.

    It's doing it roughly twice a day now so at some point it's just going to switch off and not work like the last 2.

    There seems little point in sending it back, as the next one will more than likely do the same thing and I think the odds of it being a manufacturing defect or fault, are reasonably high.

    But I'm left wondering if it's even worth trying to fight for a refund, or even a partial one with Amazon?

    I just sent an email to Fellowes to say what they say, but yea I had pondered the idea, but sadly I don't have a soldering iron or solder.

    There is a video of how to replace the capacitor to, so it must be a known issue.
