Question about Air Purifiers

Open Question

Where should I set my air circulator controls?

My home came with an air circulator, but no instruction manuel. I have a control dial marked with 'off', numbers 80 through 20 (by tens) and 'on'.... Where should the dial be positioned, for a small home in Eastern Canada? I obviously have it in the wrong place now.... at approximately the '45' mark, I have condensation forming in a ceiling vent close to the end of the system run.

SOURCE: condensation forms on the top inner ceiling of the refrigerator

Very common problem I have repaired many times , The drain is frozen or plugged.
remove the back panel in the freezer section to get to the evap./cooling coil , then check the pan under it , there is a small 1" drain hole at the bottom that may have ice in it or its clogged with something else.
Use hair dryer or similar to remove ice then get a wire or something similar that is firm to use to snake out and clear that drain hole you want to get about 10 inches down into it.
Pour bleach into evap pan and let it sit for a bit. [10 minutes]
Then to know its cleared well pour a cup of water into the evap pan then check the pan under the unit at bottom behind kickplate to ensure the bleach and water has made it to this pan.
If unit is now draining here , wipe remaining water off top of ref. compartment and by the next day it will usually stop.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Phil

Dryer display blinks on ND OFF WHEN TURNING DIAL or pressing start and does not turn on


I appreciate your post, friend!

From the information you have provided your Electrolux dryer's displays blinks on and off when you turn the dial and it does not start. This sounds like a possible issue with your door latch or control panel. I would recommend for you to check the door strike and door latch to make sure there is no visible damage. If you do not see any damage this could be a wiring issue within your door latch or control panel. This is not a simple DIY job and I would suggest having a professional out to perform an accurate diagnosis. I hope this is helpful information. -Matt

How do I read the graduations on the purifier control & what do the 1 or 2 red plate settings tell me?


The graduations are incremental for your ozone output for the purifier control. Generally, the machine can put out enough ozone to cover 3000 sq ft. (when the control is moved all the way to the right, about 5 o'clock.) Half way should be about 1500 sq ft or 12 o'clock. For general air cleansing, you should set the purifier control to produce enough ozone so you smell it when walking into the room (after home) for about 30 seconds. The ozone smell should disappear after that. If it lingers, you've got it set too high. For more severe odor control you can set it higher but remember that some of us are more sensitive to the odor no matter what the setting. It may need some adjustment based on your individual preferences.

I'm confused about the 'red plates' as you mentioned. The original machine comes w/ 2 ozone plates (made of glass) and doesn't produce ozone when one of the plates is removed. I'm guessing that the lines may tell you when you're engaging both plates to work, i.e. more ozone being produced & blown into the room or less only calling on one plate to produce ozone. If you send me a close up pic of the control panel I may be able to tell you more.

It will not turn on it says it locked how do i get this off of the screen and get it to turn on quiet flow is the nameof it


Crystal, first turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes before plugging the unit back in. After you plug it in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you wish. Hopefully, during that 12 - 15 minute timeout, the unit reset itself and should now work normally.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you can call Hunter Technical Support. In the US dial 888-830-1326.
In Canada dial 866-268-1936

I just purchased a used XL15s. The unit when in manual mode emits an oder, but the air feels oxygenated. When you breath close to the machine the air seems to irritate or kinda burn my eyes. When in auto...


This is what the machine is designed to do! The machine emits a low amount of ozone, which is the purifier/sanitizer created by sunlight. Close to the machine, it's concentrated. When it spreads throughout the room, it kills odors and bacteria, and creates the fresh smell of clean air. The air truly is "oxygenated," because ozone is simply O3, instead of O2, and breaks down quickly.
If the numbered dial is set too high (try it at 300 to 500) it will smell "bleachy." Your "rule of thumb" is that when you've been away, and enter the home, you should experience the same fresh, clean smell that you get when you step outdoors on a bright spring or winter day.
When you're doing something that creates odors, like frying fish or cooking sauerkraut, turn the dial up to take care of that odor quickly, then turn it down for normal operation.
Leave it on the manual setting for continual purification. Often, the auto setting has been disabled, which might be the case in your older machine. (These machines can be 12-15 years old!) For an owners manual, go to www.vollara.com (new name of Ecoquest/Alpine). They may be able to help you.

I cannot adjust the fan speed. There is 1 spot on


If there is only one spot on the fan control dial that turns on the fan, it seems that the fan control pot has failed and needs to be replaced. You can call the company and order one and it should fix your problem 800 989 2299.

I have a Living Air Purifier - Model Flair with Ecotech


You can download the manual online at http://www.ecoquestonline.net/ownersmanuals_web/flair_om.pdf

Basically let your nose be your guide. When you are right in front of the machine you can smell the fresh air. As soon as you walk in the house you should smell that fresh air smell for about 30 seconds and then it should go to the back of your senses. If not the setting on the machine is too high. Dial it back a notch and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment, until you have the right setting.

Hope this helps!

Living Air XL 15, no ozone


My XL-15 had the same problem a few years ago. I had a broken wire on the fan, and the Ozone problem turned out to be a problem with the power supply. I had to send it in to have it repaired.
