Regardless of unit the purifier plates may need replacement. How are the plates cleaned? Could it be that there is a residue from the cleaning agent present after cleaning? With new plates there is a little oil on the plates to prevent oxidation when in storage or transit. A little rubbing alcohol would do the trick.
Make sure the plates are dry before putting them back into the unit.

If the plates are seated right and clean you should see a faint purple glow on the plates when the unit is on purify.

Let me know if that's the case.

Does not produce ozone, I have replaced the fuse, it has been cleaned and the amber light is not on.


it's possible that the ozone generator inside has gone bad. The only way to really know is to remove it from the unit and then test it with a power supply w/correct voltage of coarse. You will smell the ozone immediately if it works upon testing. (clean fresh smell) If it does need replaced, it's an easy fix for anyone with electronics knowledge. You will need to match up the numbers to get the correct replacement. Many are available on Ebay. Always disconnect the power to the unit before taking it apart. Hope this helps, Dave

When the unit is turned on, it works, but the light in the window in front of the unit is wak and there are no readings as usual


Sometimes, for some reason, the lights burn out or don't function correctly. However, you can determine by hearing, smelling, and looking at the fan to see where the machine is set. If the controls still work, and everything seems to be running, just keep using the machine. Since Vollara (EcoQuest new owners) no longer sells nor repairs the machine, your option for repair is just to keep investigating until you find a former dealer or repair person who would look at it.

No fresh air smell from EcoQuest Fresh Air 2.0. What is the fix for this? Everything else seems to work


The FA2 uses several technologies for purification. The "normal" mode produces purifiers using the honeycomb RCI cell and UV light. This has little or no odor.
Open the back of the machine, or shine a flashlight through the front to make sure the white 4" plate is inserted, closest to the back screen. If it isn't, you'll need to either put one in, or order one from Vollara (new EcoQuest company name) @ 1-800-989-2299. You can use #16618 as the dealer referral number if you are no longer in touch with the registered distributor who sold you the machine.
When you turn the machine to "purifier," you should then detect the "fresh air" smell. You'll see square footage numbers, which you should set according to the immediate area, NOT total for the building! Also, the machine directs the air flow to the sides in a "V" shape, rather than straight ahead. So if you're standing close to the machine, smack-dab in the front/center, you may not be able to smell any of the purifier!
When the machine is on "Away" mode, the purifier and fan are ramped up to maximum strength, and you can choose 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours for this super-sanitization. At then end of that time, the machine will return to whatever setting you had it on for daily operation. No people or pets should be in the immediate area, because the purifier is strong and likely to be uncomfortable. (Set the timer for 2 or 4 hours less than the time you expect to be "away," to allow the purifier levels in the home to return to a pleasant level.)
Hope this helped.

Yes it will. But do not run it on ozone mode while you or pets are present.

I have an ecoquest fresh air purifier and the end of a red wire was corroded so I replaced the end with a new one, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing any ozone smell or sanitizing. It seems as if...


That corrosion is oxidation for the lug connecting the grid plate.Metal contact fingers make contact on the plates metal grids.The same corrosion exists on those metal contact fingers and the plate itself. Clean the fingers,ensure good connections as the other wire connector spade for the other contact finger is probably compromised. You might de-oxidize the plate by soaking in pure white ammonia.At any rate,I agree about the quality of the machines and you might be faced with a small parts order from eco-quest.Do include the plate, a bulb and the bulb starter. I run 5 of these in a commercial setting and they are fairly enjoyable to work on.
