Will not turn on - no power at all
If your Breeze was working, but you cleaned it and now it won't turn on, the problem almost certainly is with the reassembly of the components. Go through the following checklist.
1) Make sure the plug in the back is inserted firmly and the wall socket is live.
2) The little switch by the plug should have the "I" end depressed and the "0" end up.
3) Check to make sure the back screen is inserted firmly, depressing the interior safety switch. (It will click when positioned correctly).
4) Make sure the plates are inserted correctly, with the top and bottom in the little grooves and the metal fingers pressing firmly on the screen part of the plate. You may need to twist the white upright posts slightly to align the contacts.
5) Try both the manual and remote controls. If the manual controls work, but the remote ones do not, check to see if the little plastic battery shield is still in the remote. Remove it by pulling on the little tab. If that's not the issue, also try a new battery in the remote. If one set of controls works, but the other doesn't, you may operate the machine with only the working controls and ignore the others.
6) If none of the above suggestions helps, remove the plug in back, and pull out the fuse to see if it is blown. Very infrequently, a sudden powerup or power surge will blow the fuse. If so, replace it with the EXACT same size fuse, available at an auto parts store.
If none of these troubleshooting steps works, then it would appear that the problem is in the computerization. Unfortunately, Vollara (new name for EcoQuest) is no longer servicing nor selling the Breeze. Your only option to get it fixed would be to find a dealer who still has some, along with extra parts, in stock. If you call Customer Service, they will give you some trade-up options. 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if you need a referral number.
