A Xiaomi air purifier can be reset. This can be useful, for example, if it keeps giving error messages or if you want to connect it to a new WiFi network. Broadly speaking, you have two types of reset options: a WiFi reset and a filter reset.
In this manual I tell you how to reset the Xiaomi air purifier and why this is very important in some cases.
Why reset a Xiaomi air purifier?
As I mentioned in the introduction, there can be several reasons to want to reset a Xiaomi air purifier. For example, you may want to connect it to a different WiFi network or you will constantly receive error messages.
The main reasons for a reset:
- Link to another WiFi network

There are several ways to reset the purifier. Let’s discuss both ways.
