In the world of filters, there are two types – exhaust and inline. These filters are used in different parts of an engine and have their own individual cleaning and maintenance processes. The bedjet filter is an inline filter and has a separate cleaning process from the exhaust filter.
There are many things that can be introduced into your bedjet filter, which will stop it from working properly as well as reduce its lifespan. How you clean your bedjet filter will depend on where it’s located, but there are some general rules regarding all kind of filters. A clogged or dirty irst-stage inline filter will result in the engine not performing to optimal levels, which can lead to further damage if left unattended for a long period of time.
Checkout for blockage
After you’ve cleaned the filter and put it back together, you can check to see if there is any blockage in the filter by turning on the machine. If your machine has an inline filter, make sure the machine is off before you do this. If you hear a significant drop in suction on the machine or notice a drop in the airflow, there may be some blockage in the filter that you missed during the cleaning process.
How To Clean Bedjet Filter
What you’ll need
A screwdriver, bucket, gloves and a vacuum are the main things you’ll need to clean your bedjet filter. Depending on where your filter is, there may be other tools or items you’ll need to help you clean it, so make sure you have everything you need before you start.
If your filter is located on the machine, you can use the vacuum to clean around the filter, but be careful not to get too close to the fan. If your filter is located in the ducting, you’ll need to follow the next step to know how to clean the ducting. You may also want to have a scraper handy to help remove any caked-on dirt and debris from the filter. Just be careful not to damage the filter while doing so.
Step 1: Disassemble the Filter
Your first step when cleaning the bedjet filter is to disassemble the filter. This is particularly important for inline filters since dust that has collected in the ducting can easily make its way into the filter and cause more damage. You can use a screwdriver to unscrew the filter from the ducting and have the filter stand upright on a bucket so any dust and debris can fall out. Be careful not to get too close to the fan since it can cause the fan to become obstructed and reduce the airflow through the filter.
Step 2: Soak the Filter
If your filter is extremely dirty, you may need to soak it in some water to remove any caked-on dirt. This step is often used in cleaning air ducts, as water will help remove dust and debris that has collected in the ducting. When cleaning the filter, you can use warm water mixed with a cleaning agent to help remove any stubborn caked-on dirt. Make sure you thoroughly rinse the filter to remove all traces of soap before you dry the filter.
Step 3: Rinse & Dry the Filter
Rinse the filter with clean water and then use a soft cloth to dry it. To avoid damaging the filter, avoid using a dry cloth. Instead, use a wet cloth and then let it air dry. After you’ve dried the filter, you can screw it back onto the ducting. Be careful not to overtighten the screws, as this can damage the filter and ducting.
The inline filter is just as important as the exhaust filter, so cleaning it regularly will help make sure your machine continues to run smoothly. If you notice a drop in performance with your machine, it’s a good idea to check both your inline and exhaust filters to see if they are dirty.
If you’re using your bedjet with a duvet, be sure to clean it regularly so it doesn’t build up dust and lint like a normal blanket would. Bedjets are great for cooling your bed on a warm night, but that can be a lot of work if you don’t know how to clean a bedjet filter properly. These machines require a little extra maintenance, but it’s worth it for the added comfort. Once you know how to clean your filter, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of your bedjet machine even more.
