Hi Tlwynn,

The grid part of the screen should face the fan. The O3 produced by the cold-plasma discharge is what attacks the odors, and you want the fan to blow it out of the machine.

Make sure the spring-steel contacts are touching metal on both sides of the plate.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,

Jon

I put in a new Living Air XL-15 fan but no go.


Make sure that the pin on the back cover penetrates deeply enough into the unit to activate the power. I too couldn\'t figure out why mine wouldn\'t start until I pressed hard on the bottom right corner of the back cover. When I did the unit started immediately because the pin wasn\'t fully inserted. To solve the problem I held the cover tight with a piece of duct tape and haven\'t had a problem since.

Do not know what to do when the service required light is on on a Alpine LIVING AIR XL15 IONIC AIR PURIFIER OZONE XL 15. How do I service it?


Hi JoAnn,

Alpine purifiers need periodic cleaning, as dust and dirt from air moving through the unit is electrostatically deposited on internal components; enough build-up can cause short-circuits and diminished peformance. The ozone-discharge plates need to be cleaned monthly, and the inside wiped down at that time. The lint trapscreen on the back also needs to be cleaned (I use hot water in my kitchen sink with the spray-nozzle). I recommend an old toothbrush dipped in household ammonia for scrubbing the plates, and an old sock dampened with ammonia for wiping the inside spaces. The ammonia fumes can be unpleasant, so if you can do this outside or in garage, do so. Also, rinse the plates thoroughly to remove any ammonia residue. Just make sure the discharge plates are COMPLETELY BONE-DRY before putting them back in, otherwise, you risk shorts, and potential damage to the plate. Use the toothbrush without the ammonia (preferably dry) to dust-off the sensor in back that triggers the "service required" light. Iif it's like the ones I've worked-on, it should be connected to another light inside, but I recommend checking your owners manual to help identify the location and description of the sensor.

About once a year, a thorough cleaning (using a brush to get the accumulated gunk out of the nooks and crannies) is recommended). This involves disconnecting the fan leads and (if so-equipped) the needle-point ionier after removing the four screws through the bottome holding the chassis in-place. If you're not comfortable working with wiring and spade-terminals, you may want to use a keyboard vaccuum brush (long-necked tube with a brush on the end available in office-supply stores and the like) to reach in instead.

If this helps, please rate me... thanks!

How long have you owned machine? Plates need to be replaced periodically to be effective and to generate ozone. Depends on usage but at least every one-two years. They run about $15 a piece. I can get you some.

Easy. You need new plates in the machine. They cost about $15 a piece. Google 'ozone plates for XL-15' & sources will come up on where to buy them. Remember to clean the plates every 30-45 days w/ 50-50 solution of ammonia & water & a tooth brush on these plates. Dry thoroughly w/ hair dryer before putting back in machine.

After i cleaned the purifier it would not start up. made a noise like it was going to start but does not.


Something probably has not been replaced correctly.
Unplug the machine.
I. Check the plate and RCI (UV honeycomb) cell.
A. Make sure the top and bottom of the plate are in the little "tracks" at the top and bottom.
B. Make sure the plate is inserted firmly but not pushed in too hard. Same with the UV cell. It needs to be turned into each end until you feel it "click" or seat.
C. Look at all wires and make sure none are visibly loose or corroded or broken.
D. Make sure the plug at the back of the machine is inserted very firmly.
II. Check the fan. It has sealed bearings, which means it doesn't need oiling. However, it may be stuck for some reason. When the machine is unplugged, reach through with something and try twirling the fan.
III. If none of these troubleshooting steps work, call Vollara (new name of EcoQuest) customer service 1-800-989-2299 and use 16618 as your dealer referral number. They'll give you repair options.

I have a Living Air XL-15 purifier which was taken apart for cleaning and repair. I am now trying to put it back together and have one part that I do not remember where it goes. It is a metal needle-like...


That's a needle-point ionizer, should thread into a little arm/fitting in the fairing forward/front of the fan blades. The red wire (high voltage) should attach to this little arm (probably with a spade terminal). It provides the high-power ionization used to attract particulate air pollutants out of the air.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

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.

Alpine Air Living Air XL15 not producing Ozone or Deodorizing. New plates


Confirm that the appropriate sections of the circuitry are powered up and drawing power; check the interlock switch action; toss it back to the maker because the Hi-V transformer or ladder circuit or sense or hold caps were (if testing proves) never quite functional.
