Question about Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier

2 Answers

Working Fine UNTILL I unglugged it and cleaned it.

Appears the fuse is okay. I just cleaned the rear filter the plates and wiped off the fan. Plugged it back in after everything was dry. Appears there is NO power at all coming to the machine from the outlet. I have tried several other outlets with no luck. The one thing I did not do was probably ground the unit. Can you give me any advice, I have already searched the net and looked at the guide on the net.

Hi Marcy,

If it suddenly isn't working, the first thing I'd check is to make sure the lint screen has that little plastic tab positioned so it engages the safety cutout switch (small slot in the upper rear surface of the chassis). If this switch isn't engaged, nothing else you do will have much effect. You should be able to hear a faint audible "click" when the tab engages the switch. This is so people don't run it with the lint screen off and leave all that high-voltage stuff open to the outside world.

It's easy to miss if you haven't had it happen to you (which is how I know about it).

Write back and let me know - thanks in-advance.

I don't actually know how I fixed it. I left it unplugged for about 24 hours. I assumed that because I did not ground it, that maybe it eventually unground itself. I have no clue. I do know that my friend who was trying to help me cracked one of my ozone plates because they no long came on. I'm planning to replace the plates and I figure it will work fine. Thanks.

I have the living air xl15 its not working properly, I cant smell ozone no buzzing sound no uv light no green led coming on. I guess the only thing working is the fan. I don't have a manual and it blows my...


if you're sure you feel a breeze (fan is working), then this won't help. but make sure the rear filter is pushing in the metal tab at the bottom, or else it won't turn on. you can hold it in with a pencil to see if the machine works. also, are your plates in correctly, are any broken ? also, check/replace the internal fuse which you can find in the back.

I cleaned my Ecoquest, it was working fine, how no power


Assuming that the unit was working fine before you cleaned it. Did you remove the back lower panel while cleaning it? It the panel that holds the electrical socket and fuse. If you did, check to see if the electrical connector is seated to the main board. Also check if the keyboard connector (the one that looks like a telephone jack) is plugged into the main board. Also, check if you model has a switch on the back that it is set to the on position. And press the power switch on the front keypad to see if that make the unit work. That all I can think that might have gone wrong.

How do I clean my EcoQuest Breeze?


The purifier should be cleaned about once a month and you should do the following:
  1. Unplug the Breeze before cleaning.
  2. Wipe the Breeze with a soft cloth dampened with water, vacuum the front grill to remove any lint buildup.
  3. Cleaning the rear lint screen - You can either vacuum the filter or you can wash in hot water. Allow to dry before reinstalling the lint screen. Do not use soap, it will damage the carbon material in the lint screen.
  4. Remove the purifier plate from the purifier and soak in 1 part amonia and 1 part water solution for 10-20 minutes. Gently scrub the metal grid on the plate with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Clean the metal contacts with the same solution. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

Our Eco-Quest Breeze no longer works. I cleaned


I've seen several like that and found the wire connections corroded off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Make sure the unit is UNplugged before taking it apart.

My ecoquest breeze is squeaking


Singer sewing machine oil works great. Remove the front grill and carefully remove the fan by sliding it off the shaft. Where the shaft meets th4e motor, place three or four drops of oil. Spin the shaft and wipe off the excess. Place the fan back on the shaft, flush with the end of the shaft. In the rear, remove the lint screen and the ozone plates. Put oil on one end of a Q-tip over a trash can until it drips off. On the rear of the fan motor, push the Q tip against the shaft so that oil oozes out. Again, spin the fan. Repeat this process every time you clean your Breeze and it should never squeak again.

Clean Filter Red light


I cleaned the filters as well earlier and the red filter light still blincked to clean the filters. Then I pushed the power button for about 10 seconds continously and then turned it on and the light turned off.

Unit stopped smelling


Whenever you clean or replace the plate, you must also clean the contacts that touch the plate, and all supports for the contacts. Clean them with 70% or higher isopropyl alcohol and Q tips. You should also clean the ionization point with a Q tip and alcohol, remove and clean the fan and oil the fan motor front and rear with a drop or two of sewing machine oil. Replace the fan so that it is flush with the end of the shaft. Make sure that the contacts are firmly against the ozone plate when you replace it. They sometimes barely make contact and then don't work well. You can bend them enough to make them fit firmly.

Fan is not turning on


The fan motor is probably locked up. You can either put a little oil to free it up (usually a temporary fix) or better yet replace the fan motor.
