  • Keep the air purifier away from water, and wet or damp areas. Never place it in water or liquid.
  • Do not use in excessively humid areas.
  • Keep the air purifier away from heat sources.
  • Do not use where combustible gases, vapors, metallic dust, aerosol (spray) products, or fumes from industrial oil are present.
  • Keep 5 ft / 1.5 m away from where oxygen is being administered.
  • Supervise children when they are near the air purifier. Do not allow children to play with the air purifier.
  • Do not place anything into any opening in the air purifier.
  • Do not sit on or place heavy objects on the air purifier.
  • Keep the inside of the air purifier dry. To prevent moisture buildup, avoid placing in rooms with major temperature changes or underneath air conditioners.
  • Always unplug the air purifier before servicing (such as changing the filter).
  • Do not use the air purifier if it is damaged or not working correctly, or if the cord or plug is damaged. Do not try to repair it yourself. Contact Customer Support
  • WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use this air purifier with any solid-state speed controls (such as a dimmer switch).
  • Children should not clean or perform maintenance on the air purifier without supervision.
  • • This air purifier is not to be used by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capacities, or lack of experience and knowledge.

Power & Cord

  • Keep the air purifier near the outlet it is plugged into.
  • Never place the cord near any heat source.
  • Do not cover the cord with a rug, carpet, or other covering. Do not place the cord under furniture or appliances.
  • Keep the cord out of areas where people walk often. Place the cord where it will not be tripped over.
  • This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
  • This air purifier uses standard North American 120V, 60Hz outlets. If using outside the US or Canada, check for compatibility.
  • If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by Arovast Corporation or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid an electric or fire hazard. Please contact Customer Support.

    Levoit LAP-C161-WUS Mini Air Purifier User Manual fig 3
  5. Connect the AC power adapter to the air purifier. Plug into an outlet.

    Levoit LAP-C161-WUS Mini Air Purifier User Manual fig 4


Make sure the air outlet and the air inlets are not blocked. This may cause the air purifier to overheat and stop working.

  1. Tap the Control Button to turn on the air purifier.
  2. Optionally, press the Control Button repeatedly to change fan speed between I, II, and III, and to turn the air purifier off.

The display lights will automatically turn off after 60 seconds of inactivity.

Essential Oils
Do not add essential oils to the filter or the fan. The filter will be damaged by the oil and will eventually release an unpleasant smell. Only add essential oils to the aroma pad, located in the aroma box near the top of the air purifier.

Adding Essential Oils

  1. Push in the aroma box and pull it out.
  2. Add 5–7 drops of essential oil to the aroma pad.
  3. Place the aroma box back into the air purifier.

Do not mix essential oil blends. Clean the aroma pad before using a new essential oil blend.

Moisture may damage the filter. This air purifier should be used in an area with a humidity level below 85% RH. If you use the air purifier in excessively humid areas, the surface of the filter may become moldy.

Water or moisture will allow mold to grow. To solve a mold problem, get rid of the source of the moisture and clean up the mold.


The air purifier uses a 3-stage filtration system to purify air.

Levoit LV-H134 Pro HEPA Air Purifier User Manual fig 6

  1. A. Pre-Filter 
    • Captures large particles such as dust, lint, fibers, hair, and pet fur.
    • Maximizes the filter’s life by protecting it.
  2. B. H13 True HEPA Filter
    • Captures at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns (µm) in size.
    • Traps small particles such as fine dust, smoke particles, and allergens such as pollen and pet dander.
  3. C. Custom High-Efficiency Activated Carbon Filter
    • Physically adsorbs smoke, odors, and fumes.
    • Customized using Levoit’s exclusive ARC Formula™ to be especially effective for cooking smells and pet odors in a multi-pet household.
    • The ARC Formula extends the life of the filter by chemically decomposing molecules trapped within the Activated Carbon Filter, which prevents oversaturation and secondhand pollution.
    • Filters compounds such as formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Arovast Corporation makes no claims that this air purifier helps reduce the COVID-19 virus.


Cleaning the Smart Air Purifier

  • Unplug before cleaning.
    Note: Do not clean with abrasive chemicals or flammable cleaning agents.
  • Wipe the outside of the air purifier with a soft, dry cloth. If necessary, wipe with a damp cloth, then immediately dry.
  • Vacuum the inside of the air purifier using a vacuum hose with a crevice attachment. [Figure 2.1]
    Levoit LAP-C161-WUS Mini Air Purifier User Manual fig 5

Check Filter Indicator
Levoit 600S VeSync Core Air Purifier User Manual fig 13will light up as a reminder to check the filter. If you use your air purifier consistently (24 hours of daily use), the indicator should turn on after about 6–12 months. You may not need to change your filter yet, but you should check it when Levoit 600S VeSync Core Air Purifier User Manual fig 13

turns on. When your air purifier is set up with the VeSync app, you can also check the app to see your remaining filter life. You will also receive a notification from VeSync when it’s time to check your filter. The VeSync app uses a scientific algorithm to determine your filter life based on air quality, amount of use, and other factors.

Cleaning the Filter
The outer pre-filter should be cleaned every 2–4 weeks to increase efficiency and extend the life of your filter. Clean the pre-filter using a soft brush or vacuum hose to remove hair, dust, and large particles. [Figure 3.1] Do not clean the filter with water or other liquids.

When Should I Replace the Filters?

The filters should be replaced every 6–8 months. You may need to replace your filters earlier or later depending on how often you use your air purifier. Using your air purifier in an environment with relatively high pollution may mean you will need to change the filters more often (even if the Check Filter Indicator is off). You may need to replace your filters if you notice:

  • Increased noise when the air purifier is on
  • Decreased airflow
  • Unusual odors
  • Visibly clogged filters.

To maintain the performance of your air purifier, only use official Levoit filters. To buy replacement filters, visit Levoit’s online store. Go to levoit.com for more information.

Replacing the Filters

  1. Unplug the air purifier. Flip the air purifier over and remove the filter cover.
  2. Remove the old filters.
  3. Clean any remaining dust or hair inside the air purifier using a vacuum hose. Do not use water or liquids to clean the air purifier.
  4. Unwrap the new filters and place them into the housing.
  5. Replace the cover and plug in the air purifier.
  6. Reset the Check Filter Indicator.

If not using the air purifier for an extended period of time, wrap both the air purifier and the filters in plastic packaging and store them in a dry place to avoid moisture damage.
