My linkage fell apart inside my Symphony III air exchanger
The small front electric motor which rotates the shaft that rotates the intake and exhaust doors has a small spring which came off. How does it go on? Is it spring tension to close the doors, or to open the doors. How is it attached? Need a diagram or something. Very awkward inside to work on. Can anyone help?

have you cleaned the connections where the filter connects . There is prob dust and dirt down inside the filter , keeping it from making a good connection. The zapping sound is from the electricty jumping the gap. A good cleaning of the inside should help. Try attaching a small hose to your vac to fit down inside the unit. give the electrical connections a good cleaning . If that dosen't work take unit apart and wipe down with alchol that you can buy at any drugstore
The motor has worn bushings making the motor shaft hot and swell and eventually seize. You can let it cool off and it will more than likely run again until it heats up again. The motor will have to be replaced if you want to repair it.
The Flair is no longer manufactured nor serviced by EcoQuest, and the company is now Vollara. If what you're hearing is the fan motor (there is no other motor associated with this machine), it might mean that either it's totally seized up, or that the oil just has not penetrated deeply enough.
1) Turn the machine over and remove the large screw in the bottom. The chassis will then slide out (I assume you've already done this in order to reach the fan shaft.)
2) Firmly pull on the fan blades near the center in order to pull them free of the shaft.
3) Turn the chassis on its back, so the fan shaft points up. Drip a small amount of lightweight oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, 3-in-1) on the shaft and turn it manually to work the oil down the shaft. Continue doing this if you feel the shaft loosening up.
4) Set the chassis upright, tilt it forward, and drip a small amount of oil on the rear opening to the fan shaft. Continue manually turning the shaft and tilting the machine to work the oil in.
5) Replace the fan blades and turn on the machine, depressing the safety switch manually, to see if the fan will begin to turn.
If it won't turn, it might mean that the fan motor is entirely seized up. You may be able to find a local small appliance repair person who could replace that motor.
Your other option is to call Vollara customer service at 800-989-2299 and ask them to explain your options. Use #16618 if you need a dealer referral number.
Remove the front grid. Pull firmly but gently on the fan blades to remove them from the shaft. Turn the machine on its back, open front facing up. Use a light household oil (sewing machine, hair clipper, or 3-in-1) and squirt a small amount down the shaft, turning the shaft as you do so. You may need to do this several times, until you can feel the shaft move freely. If this doesn't help, your only option is to use the machine as a $100 trade-in credit for an upgrade. The new company, Vollara, is no longer manufacturing nor repairing the Breeze. (1-800-989-2299) Some dealers may still have Breezes in stock, and some may also have parts, but you'd have to locate them yourself.
You could try some appliance repair shops. If you are able to solder the loosen wire , do so. but the ball-baering coming offf indicates a serious problem within the motor. Look in your yellow-pages for electric motor service. They could help replacing the baearing. But do not be surprised if you didn't get the bearing replaced. Those small appliances are meant for "disposable" use.
