In order to combat this foul oder my dogs and I proudly produce at night in a bedroom, I started looking for a miracle machine. I didn't think I'd find one. I bought this unit based on another review that says it cures fart smells. It arrived undamaged and well boxed. Upon plugging the unit in after some filter assembly (took all but one minute), it started to run on the 'Auto' cycle. After a few seconds the fan got noticeably stronger and the air quality indicator light jumped up to 'yellow', which means the air quality is so-so. To dumb it down, I'd say if the light is green you're breathing in air from the garden of eden. If it's yellow, someone must have tooted. If it's red, there is basically the equivalent of a huge steaming pile of elephant poo on the floor somewhere and you should have a mask on or immediately flee to the outdoors for fresh air.
Back to firing this unit up for the first time... I was still skeptical that it would work as advertised. It's billed as being able to tell on it's own if there's a foreign odor in the room (whether it's the aroma of beans and chili on the oven or the smell of a fresh hot fart). I positioned the unit on a small end table about level with our king sized bed next to where I sleep. I had my back to the unit, my butt about 2 feet away from it, while I stood there reading the instructions and description on how it works. While I read the manual, I inadvertently let out a little mouse fart. And I mean a super little one... probably small enough that if anyone was around me they would have neither heard it or smelled it. And by inadvertently, I mean I didn't squeeze one out to see if the unit would respond. It just happened without any planning on my part. Less than 3 seconds after my little toot, the PlasmaWave 5300 took control of the room. With my back still to it I heard the fan kick in. I thought the darned thing was going to take off. When I turned around, the air quality indicator light was as red as it could get. And this just 3 seconds after my breaking wind ever so slightly.
At first I thought so. What to do at that point? Begin a real test. I proceeded to eat a can of lima beans (because everyone knows if you eat any type of cooked bean whole you'll work up some good farts for crop dusting, right?). About an hour later I re-entered our bedroom. The machine operating quietly on auto-pilot... air quality light back to garden of eden green... my stomach and butt ready to unleash an awful wrath. This time I called my wife into the room to witness the spectacle. I bent over about 6 feet from the unit and let one go. And it was a good one. Sure enough, the PlasmaWave went back into launch mode... firing on all cylinders. This thing can really move some air!! If you were between the unit and me, you could smell my glory. But if you were outside of that range, no problem. This unit ate my odor like it needs it as fuel to survive.
Ever tooting incident in the room that followed resulted in the same response from the machine. We now leave it on auto overnight and my wife can now sleep with me and my two vile smelling dogs. I even caught her one day forcing one out to show it off to her sister (girls do it too apparently... don't let them fool you). This machine is amazing. Easily the best purchase I've ever made on Amazon.
Not only does it keep a room smelling fresh, it saves marriages. How could it NOT be the best purchase ever made when that's taken into consideration? If my wife is sleeping in the same room with me again, one thing might lead to another and our son might get a sibling. All thanks to this machine.
If you had any doubts, you shouldn't now. Buy this machine. Save your marriage. Have more kids. Breathe easy.
PS- the 'chirping' from the Plasma thingy being on is hardly evident. You can hear it if you want to, but it's so minuscule you won't hear it while you sleep. At least I don't. Doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I think the units subtle sound is great white noise for sleeping (if you're used to having a fan on, this is no different). And if the Plasma thing does bother you, you can turn it off. As for the unit cycling into overdrive occasionally while you sleep, that will depend on how flatulent you or your better half is. If you think you might not like it getting real loud while you sleep after you lift the covers from your dutch oven, you can set it on one of four fan settings that will stay constant throughout the night. My wife and I set it on 1 if our tummies aren't upset, or 2 if we know we're going to be cutting some cheese in our sleep.
If you plug this unit in and it stays on red for more than 10 minutes with the fans going full steam, I suggest you have your home demolished. It's not safe for you or your family to live in. But this baby pretty much devours any foul smell pretty quickly.
I'm beyond pleased.
I researched dozens of air purifiers. I researched so many air purifiers that I've honestly forgotten their names, brands and how much they costed. I was exhausted from just looking at them and was tempted to just buy the next Honeywell that we saw at Best Buy or Target. After scouring high and wide I finally narrowed my searched down to the Sharp FPA60UW and this Winix 5300.
I admit, we ended up getting them both (one for downstairs in the living room and one for our bedroom) and this Winix sits in our living room. She was delivered to our doorstep and after installing filters per the instructions we plugged it in and hoped for some sort of benefit, any benefit at all. The auto sensor kicked in and started whirring up, blasting into high gear and getting to work. I sat down at my computer to look up silly videos and I noticed the Winix had quieted down, the sensor bar going all the way down to green, reporting that the job was done. I inhaled deeply and do you know what I smelled? Nothing. It was so peculiar...the living room smelled like nothing. I got out of my chair and went to the adjoining kitchen...nothing. The bottom floor smelled like nothing. We have carpet so it usually smells like something but no, nothing.
This Winix literally hates all smells. Whether it's a good smell like perfume, a bad smell like passing gas, a delicious smell like my wife's cooking, it does not differentiate. Whenever the Winix senses any smell whatsoever it will jump into action like a superhero and eliminate it. Allergens and pollen don't have a chance. When the door is opened, even for a fraction of a second, the Winix will kick into action and voila, no sneezing. No burning eyes. No scratchy throats. The overwhelming theme here is, the Winix offers the true relief and happiness which can only be achieved by nothing. It will make rooms smell like nothing, our allergies have been reduced to nothing, and based on what we paid for vs the benefits we're getting from her, it feels like we paid nothing. I hated seeing my wife in such misery from her allergies and I gladly would've paid hundreds of more to ease her suffering but my wallet is sure glad I didn't.
On a side note, if you were like me and contemplating between the Winix and the Sharp, I believe the auto-sensor and lower price puts the advantage solely on the Winix. Best home purchase we've made and worth more than we paid, can't beat that.
Unplug the unit.
Remove front cover. Remove screw near the air quality sensor to access the ribbon cable to the control panel. Unplug ribbon cable.
Remove top two screws on front of unit and remove control panel assembly.
Removing two screws holding black box containing circuit board.
Remove black box. There is a piece of tape holding the two parts together. Peel it back.
Open black box to expose circuit board. Unplug the plasma generator from the circuit board (see attached photo). Tuck the cable back inside the unit. Put everything back together. You're done. Plasmawave light will still come on but you can cover it with tape and not think about it anymore.
As far as a review goes, what can I say. It's a fan with a fancy filter on it and it helped me when I had a litter box in the apartment. It's cheaper than similar units and you can use a Fellowes HF-300 filter as a replacement (which is slightly cheaper). Still working fine after two years.
