Hey Dan,

Just wondering where I'd find a replacement filter for my Air Care Range Hood. It's model #AC-1500 and the sticker says "Air Care Industries, Union, IL" on it where I obtained the model number. I am thinking that this company may not be in business as I was unsuccessful in finding the replacement parts in any of the home improvement stores and/or a website.

It's two filters, actually. The one you see is the metal one which I believe can be cleaned by soaking it and spraying it off. The second one sits up inside of that one and is made of a charcoal gray material. It fits in the groves above that.

Any ideas? Ever even hear of this brand?

Thanks again,

Dan,

I'm replying to my own posting here, but I did find a solution: take the filters and throw 'em into your automatic dishwasher. Even the charcoal (black) filter came out spotless and both filters are reinstalled without having to find a hard-to-fit replacement.

Thanks for the use of the site. Hopefully others may see this if caught in the same situation.

Thanks for posting the tip, although I don't know if/how much an activated charcoal filter would be affected by such treatment. The charcoal is suppose to adsorb odors and even if it *looks* pristine, may no longer function as it was intended. I guess time will tell?

Hello. Just noted your question regarding getting parts for the Air Care Range Hood.

I was searching for the same thing. I finally found a company that sells the Filters and Grid. the carbon filter can not be washed, but the alluminum grid the covers the carbon filter can be cleaned in the dishwasher. You can go to D-Mark web page to order the parts you need. they will need the deminsions of your filter and they ship within a week. I thought I would save you searching like I did.Dmarkinc.com/p7.htm

Jggyor,

Thanks for reading my post and giving me a supplier's name. I went on their site and ordered a filter.

I noticed that the dimensions of my filter are 13½" × 11" × ⅜". So it's a bit bigger than the specific model [part number] you suggested in your reply post.

Thanks again. I really appreciate it! In about 5 to 7 days I should have it and can finally change that old filter!

Thankyou for this post!! I was having the same problem with trying to locate this company Aircare out of Union Illinois and thought to try and search the web to find out how I could replace the metal filter. It lead me right to you and the infomation you provide was so helpful. I will be ordering a new one as this one I'm embarrassed to say is almost 20 yrs. old and I just did not know you could remove the darn thing and clean it. Well I do now and the grub and grime almost made me sick. I will definitely be replacing this ASAP and again thankyou for pointing me in the right direction!!

I am not sure if I am doing this forum thing right please be patient with me as I have never done this before but I was wondering if Aircare is not longer in business and I can buy the replacement filter for the rangehood where might I find a supplier of the entire range hood itself. The one that was installed over 18 yrs. ago brand new is now old and rusting and just not looking good any longer. I have mentioned this to my landlords and if this whole unit needs replaced where might I find a dealer who does this?? I would appreciate any information regarding this. I guess this Aircare company is no longer making this product am I correct in saying this or not??

** if Aircare is no longer in business and I can buy the replacement filter... **

Someone else is making (fabricating) the replacement filter. They are NOT coming from the manufacturer (probably because they're out of business).

Unless you can find a used one for sale, you will NOT likely be able to purchase a whole hood of that manufacturer.

Bought house 15 years ago, a prefab. Range hood was already in place. Some small movement of air when turn on fan, and light works with single ordinary light bulb. However water comes in through the fan to stove top. Melting snow or rain, water comes down onto my kitchen range. Had guy go up on roof and take a look at vent to range hood fan and he installed a little chicken wire to keep birds from building nests there or squirrels from getting inside to attic. So is there something missing like a damper up there on roof side or does it go inside the duct work that goes from the range hood through the ceiling? Problem existed when bought house and is just gradually getting worse......thank you for your attention........sandra
