Re: green light is on but will not operate
Because this purifier is essentially a filter in a box with a fan pulling/pushing air through, I can only guess that "will not operate" means that the fan isn't moving the air.
1) Is there a fuse that you can check to see if it's blown? 2) Have you tried resetting the Filter Life Indicator button? 3) Is it still within warranty?
The instructions for this unit recommend operating it at MEDIUM level on a long-term basis - - evidently, it isn't designed for continuous high-speed operation. If it was running with a blanket over it, it's conceivable that the fan motor overheated and quit. Unless you are into repairing electric motors (probably not, the best you can do would be to replace it). Try contacting Jarden Consumer Solutions Customer Service at 1-800-546-5637 - - if they won't sell you a motor, you might be able to find a generic one on the Internet, but with a MSRP (Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price) of ~$90 (when new), it's going to be easy to spend more time & money fixing this than it's worth. There are lots more durable purifiers out there, though you'll likely have to pay for it.

first off does the light come on at all? when the switch is moved to the High Medium or low setting do you see a red light or a green light on the right side of the unit? if there is no light at all, then there is either no power and you have a bad cord or a bad outlet. The only other thing could be the switch that needs to be tripped in order to let the unit run, that switch is closed by the front cover locking in place. that switch could be bad or your cover may have the tip of the pin that pushes the switch closed broken off or deformed and not pushing down enough to close the switch. try pushing a screwdriver down on the switch and see if it comes on. There's nothing that can shock you if you push on that switch, the power wires are concealed inside a plastic covered area that the switch slides into. If you close the switch and it doesn't come on the check the power cord or the wall socket for power. See if the cord has any unusual looking spots or lumps, stretching, cuts or anything that looks suspicious.
mine was having the same issue. its been broken for 2 years now. i jsut fixed it a few minutes ago. there is a button sensor behind the top filter. if its not pushed in all the way it wont turn on. my filter was in correctly, but the button doesnt appear to be depressed all the way. when fastening the back cover it locked in good, but was still slightly loose. those two things together means the sensor wasnt being triggered.
with your unit correctly assembled plug it in. while plugged in simply press the top of the back cover (where that sensor is) and the light should go green. i then taped it tight with a thin electrical tape as to not limit the airflow. it now powers on and works great.
He probably cleaned the unit and restored the plaques. Green light or no green light, it doesn't affect the production of ozone. If still in doubt, when you go to pick it up, have him operate fit or you before you leave the store. I've had one 7years and the green light hasn't worked for three years. I clean it regularly and it still produces ozone when needed. Regular, routine maintenance is the answer.
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!
The blue means the germicidal lamp is operating. Re: green light - Normal operation at all power levels involves a pre-programmed cycle of altering high and low air movement. Press the the green to override the regular power control setting and run the unit at maximum power for five minutes. Your previously selected power level will resume after the five minutes has elapsed.
