Question about Ecoquest Fresh Air Air Purifier

Install Plate Displayed

I just got through cleaning my Fresh Air Purifier. After reinstalling the screen, filter, and purifier plate I turn on the unit and when I try to turn on the purifier I get the message "Purifier Off ** Install Plate ** " The plate is in good condition and is making contact with the electrode tabs. Any ideas what is wrong?

    Make sure the wires that connect to the electrodes are in good condition and not loose. You can bend the electrode slightly to make sure there is a snug fit between the plate and the electrodes.

    How did you clean the plates? What did you use to clean?

    You might want to try some alcohol and clean the tips of the electrodes.

Hi Wayne, glad to hear it's working again. Sometimes turning it off and let it sit for a while does clear some of the problems weird enough.

I'd appreciate your feedback.

I cleaned purifier plate and filters and purifier still won't workon my fresh air machine


The air purifier filters which need to be washed lose their efficiency very fast and need replacement every few months . I think its time you switched to a better air purifier like this with superior filters which last longer and can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner Premium Air Purifiers with e2f technology

I want to take my ecoquest fresh air apart to clean it, but do not know how, i have misplaced the manual


Unplug the machine and unscrew the phillips head screw on the back grill of the machine, that is just above the plug. There are depressions on the sides of the back grill that has a plastic tang that hold the back grill to the machine. Press the back grill inwards to allow the tangs to clear the sidee and the back grill should now be easily removed. Remove the two thumb screws on the top corners to remove the filter. Once the filter is removed, then you can remove the purification plate and remove the two screws that hold the RCI cell. The RCI cell and filter can be cleaned by vacumming out the dust and dirt.

The purification plate can be cleaned with a old toothbrush and a water and amonia solution. Scrub the metal grid with the toothbrush. Do both sides and then rinse with water, allow it to dry completely before reinstalling the plate. After every part is cleaned reassemble the purifier, and plug it in. Then press the reset reminder button on the front of the keypad to clear the "perform cleaning" message. This message will appear again after the purifier runs for 30 days to remind you to clean the purifier. Hope this helps you.

I do not know how to clean it. It is called Fresh


The Fresh Air has a reminder on the LCD to Perform Cleaning. This reminder will display if the purifier runs for 30 days. When this reminder is displayed perform the following steps to clean your purifier.

1. Cleaning the Case:

Wipe the unit with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use chemicals or solvents. Vacuum the front and rear grills to remove any lint buildup.

2. To clean the lint screen, RCI cell and purification plate:

3. To remove the back cover:

Remove the plug from the back of the unit. Unscrew the screw above the plug socket on the back cover. To remove the back cover, press the back sides of the back cover to unlatch and tilt the bottom of the back cover to remove.

4. To remove the rear lint screen:

Remove the two thumbscrews holding the top of the lint screen. Remove the lint screen by pulling back the top of the screen, then lift it up and out.

5. Removing the RCI cell:

Remove the RCI cell connector by pressing the connector locking tabs. Pull the connector straight out to unplug.
Remove the RCI cell by removing the two thumbscrews. Slide the RCI cell down and out of the unit.

6. Cleaning the RCI Cell:

Remove the RCI cell and carefully vacuum accumulated lint. Do not wash the RCI cell. Damage from water may result.

7. Rear lint screen cleaning:

You have two options

  1. When visibly dirty, simply remove the rear lint screen from the unit and with a duster attachment on a vacuum, remove the heavy particulate.
  2. In addition to step 1, the filter can be washed with hot water (do not use soap). Allow to dry prior to reinstalling. Replace if damaged.

8. Cleaning the Purifier Plate:

Remove the plate from the card cage by grasping the middle edge nearest to you, and slowly pull it straight out. Clean with mixture of one part water and one part ammonia. Place plate and ammonia mixture in a dish and allow it to soak for no more than 10 minutes. Remove plate and scrub with a toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly and air dry for 24 hours or use a blow dryer to dry thoroughly.

After all parts have been cleaned and are thoroughly dry, reinstall components in reverse order. Turn the purifier on, and on the key pad, press the reminder Reset button to clear the Perform Cleaning message.

If this has been helpful, please rate this solution. Thanks

How do I clean my EcoQuest Breeze?


The purifier should be cleaned about once a month and you should do the following:
  1. Unplug the Breeze before cleaning.
  2. Wipe the Breeze with a soft cloth dampened with water, vacuum the front grill to remove any lint buildup.
  3. Cleaning the rear lint screen - You can either vacuum the filter or you can wash in hot water. Allow to dry before reinstalling the lint screen. Do not use soap, it will damage the carbon material in the lint screen.
  4. Remove the purifier plate from the purifier and soak in 1 part amonia and 1 part water solution for 10-20 minutes. Gently scrub the metal grid on the plate with a toothbrush and rinse with water. Clean the metal contacts with the same solution. Allow the plate to dry overnight or use a hair dryer to dry throughly.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!

Every time I try to turn the purifier on it says install plate


The suplier switched to different electrical parts during the 3rd to 4th yr of Fresh Air manufacturing. The electrical connectors to the plate would rust and so would the screws! (Especially when you don't keep the lint screen clean! The oxidizers stay inside and try to oxidize the metal parts.) That makes for a bad connection and creates a "plate" readout. Suggest you clean the visible electrical connectors first to the plate assembly, all the way to the touching of the plate. They may just fall off. Been there! Easy to fix.
