Works as Advertised
Mine is so old, I can't remember when I got it. 10 years, maybe? I could clean it, but I want a nice new one that hasn't been melted inside from a small fire, caused by me.Ordered it with 2 spare filters. 4 stars only because it needs more motor speed for more suction.
For those who have problems, the contacts to turn on the motor can get a electrical unseen corrosion that won't pass battery power, or maybe they contacts need adjusted for tighter contact. Alcohol will clean them. You may bend them out of adjustment if you are too rough with the cleaning. Battery contacts will also do the same trick with use.

bad luck with ashtrays
I bought 2 of these and got home to use them. 1 worked about 2 days the other did not work right out of the box. I returned them to the store and got 2 more. Got home they worked 3 days and 1 week, had to return again. I am now on #5&6 and one worked about a week, the other 3 weeks. I closed the cover went about doing things, came back 1 hr. later, opened it and it will not work now either. Either I have extremely bad luck or this has been a defective batch. Loved them when they worked. But I am sick of returning them, and keep getting the same results. Goes through batteries like crazy also.

don't waste your money on this!
I purchased this ashtray, it worked for about a week, then completely stopped working despite changing the filter and replacing the batteries. I bought a second one, it worked for 3 days, same outcome.
Beware, this ashtray is VERY loud and only "grabs" about half the smoke coming from a lit cigarette just sitting in one of the holders. Also, when it's time to empty the tray, don't just tip it over to dump it out - BOTH of the ashtrays I purchased did the same thing - the tray, batteries, everything fell out.
You get what you pay for I guess. Definitely NOT going to try a third time. Warranty or not, I'm not going to waste my time getting a replacement every other week.

Smokeless ashtray works! makes ALL THE DIFFERANCE!
I absolutely love and rely on these ashtrays! Was so dissapointed when Walmart quit selling but I found them here and have used these smokeless ashtrays for at least 10 years! If they are cleaned they work a very long time. I use alcohol or jewelry cleaner, on a q-tip, to clean the metal prongs a which connect when opened. THAT is a great tip to keep yours running. Also I clean the black tray regally as well as the inside and the fan. Again, using a Q-Tip. I try to keep a good supply of filters on hand as they should be changed when cleaning the rest. The one I'm replacing today is still working but I want to get one as always to have one on hand for another smoker and for when the sad day arrives the current one dies. On average they last 9-14 months. I smoke at least a pack a day and my husband doesn't so he likes these ashtrays to!

Never had any problems
I love my ashtray! I read some reviews of bad defective ones and just had to write.
Take it back get the cash and go to another distributor and try there. Like you said, you may have gotten into a bad batch. Good Luck!

Works well for the price
I purchased mine about three months ago. I read the positive and negative reviews first. Sometimes it buzzes or rattles, but usually you can just touch it to stop the sound. I've noticed a big difference in my apartment and ordered another one for my friend.

My first Holmes Smoke Grabber worked great for about a year....but I accidentally left it open one night and the batteries ran down. Replaced the batteries - still dead. Is there a schematic available so I can test the circuitry and isolate the problem?
