Those devices use a process call IONIZATION to clean the air. What this does is make high voltage that jumps out into the air and attaches to particles in the air. Those particles are now attracted to anything with an opposite charge. In some machines there is a plate that has the opposite charge and a fan that pulls the air into the machine. When particles that are charged come into the machine, they are drawn to that plate and stick. The plate gets dirty pretty fast and has to be cleaned. The problem comes when the ionizer begins to spark. This creates ozone and ozone is harmful to people and animals, rubber and many other things. I looked up the name of the machine that you listed and the closest I can find is a really old reference to a radio shack device. the Environizer™ (630-0612/630-0613) This device was made just after regulation by the federal government that says 50 parts per billion is the limit so that device SHOULD be ok. However it has to be maintained and cared for. There is a great article here:http://www.allergyclean.com/problems-with-ozone-generators-and-ionizers-that-produce-ozone/
Just keep in mind the difference between ozone generators and air ionizers, they are not the same thing. If you need more info let me know.
The ionizer cleans the air. If it's working properly, it will smell like the air right after a lightning storm. You should use as little as possible, based on the size of the area, you're using the unit in. Do not allow it to blow directly on you or anyone else. The higher you can place the unit, the better it will work. Match the fan speed to ionizer setting.
How long have you owned the machine? If bulb is out, (the one deep inside the machine) it means the RF ionizer or needle point ionizer isn't working. Clean both of them and you should get the bulb to come back on.
It could be getting clogged up. The lint screen has GOT to be kept clean or the machines fan will pull dust into the machine and it will cake on everything inside, including the fan(will make more sound while running) and can get into the bearings of the fan causing the problems you mention. It may also be a poor electrical connection. If you have ever OILED the motor...you'll have to clean it. It's not meant to have a lot of oil or grease on it.
the first thing to check is that the remote control is working and the control panel of the fan itself are working probably and i think they did but you have to check first this fan oscillating control button is not a mechanical connection like the regular fan so if you are not using it wrong(and i think you don`t ) an if all the buttons are working -except the oscillating function - (and i think they are ) turn that thing back and test it at the shop
You have to take the fan apart. They didn't design it with the convenience of the customer who likes to keep things clean in mind, so you have to get out a bunch of screwdrivers and stuff and roll around on the ground and fight with it until you get it apart. I posted a lengthy post on how to get this model apart, as I just did mine yesterday. Just look for my name on the Lasko models like this one. But be careful and don't try it if you don't think you can pull it off without getting hurt.
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.
The black residue is what is in your air. The reason for it to cling to the walls is the Ionization process that the machine creates. The ionization is to create a clean breathing space, free from contaminants. All particles floating in the air will be negatively charged and cling to each other or to objects in the room (like walls) that are positively charged.
If you cook, there is some smoke created, or when you burn candles. These greasy particles will stick to the wall or to surfaces. Cleaning them up regularly might help. You can also try another product from EcoQuest called EcoH which is based on enzymes and cut through that grime easily. That might take the black stuff off the walls.
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.
