2 Answers

The unit does not turn on.

The unit was purchased new and has only been used 15 or so times, It seemed to work perfectly. Then It started to not want to turn on once or twice and now its dead. Every now and then I hit the power button and the screen starts to come on for a few seconds and then dead again. I have checked the wiring , I'm getting steady voltage but nothing . Any ideas ??

Thanks Vinny

I read that if your battery is low that the X85 will not turn on. The lithium battery back up will save all your information when this happens.

Hello vfedele5, The plug on the unit itself maybe the culprit. Check the voltage during power up, a resistance in the power line may be present. If the unit passes these test you have an internal connection error, bad internal connection, solder connection, ect. Merry Christmas.

My new Kenmore Electric Range, model 790.9419, purchased July 18, 2014...The clock no longer works. I press "clock", the code CLO appears; I set correct time; press START and the display goes blank an

That's an enegy saving "feature" - the ability to turn off the clock. Usually (in most models), you can turn the clock display back on by pressing and holding the clock 10 to 15 seconds.

Heating unit is delayed when you turn the heater on. It takes atleast 15 minutes or more before it comes on. what could be the problem.

When you say "unit is delayed" are you saying the fan does not come on when you switch the unit on, or that the air blowing takes 15 mins to get hot?

Recently purchased a Philco dehumidifier, model PD24GE. It turns on perfectly well but the humidity reading always says 20%, even if I put it outside where I know the humidity is at least 80%. Any...

Astro9boy, when I first read your post, I considered the problem was was just operator error. But, when I read the Owners Manual for your unit, I changed my mind. It seems there may be a problem with the control panel. But, attempting to reset it may solve the problem.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
After the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch ON
Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the unit reset itself & reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls where you desire.

In case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference.

If the above does not sole the problem, you will need to contact Philco, or the p;ace of purchase, as the unit is still under warranty.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.

My living air xl-15 prove it light does not come on anymore and it seems that the unit does not prodoce ozone. I tested the light in the normal postion set at 12:00 with the plate out but to no avail....

If you are sure that the plate is clean, in perfect condition, and inserted correctly, it would appear that the transformer is defective. This means that power is not going through the metal contact fingers into the plates.

The light probably has burned out. It is not essential to the working of the machine, so it isn't anything you need to be concerned about.

Vollara (formerly Alpine/EcoQuest) is no longer producing or servicing the XL-15. However, a newer version, called the Classic, is available. You can call Customer Service 800-989-2299 and they will tell you your options. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.

That sounds like a power supply issue. Irregular power on is often caused by a bad "PWR_OK" signal from the PSU. If you can try to find another power supply and test to see if the board will POST regularly. if that is the case, you will need a new PSU. I don't know if this PC uses a proprietary form factor PSU -likely does though due to your description. You may not be able to find a replacement that will fit in the chassis. It might be time for a new PC unfortunately.
