Re: purifier doesn't go on and keeps blowing fuses when...
If the machine keeps blowing fuses there is a short in the electrical circuit and it needs to be looked at by a certified repair center. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same as the original 100,110 volt models use the 1.0 amp slow blow fuse 220 volt models use the 0.5 amp slow blow fuse.

Check to make sure the screen is pushed down in the back to activate the failsafe button. Sometimes the button can get finicky. Take off the screen and push it down with something. See if it does anything, if not, check the fuse and the plate, if it cracks, it's blow the fuse later.
The plate is going bad. Sometimes it's just a bad part of the plate that has corrosion under it, try turning the plate and sliding in again. Sometimes that's all it needs. Sometimes it just needs to be brushed well, cleaned, and then blow-dried.
The problem can be one of several things. 1) Make sure the fuse is the EXACT size required. 2) Check the metal contact points (fingers) that press into the plate. If they aren't firmly in place, you may need to turn the white posts, or bend them slightly. 3) Make sure the plate is clean and not damaged in any way. If you see black marks, broken screen strands, loosened glue, discoloration, or cracked background at all, you need a new plate. Call the company (New name Vollara) 800-989-2299 to order new plates. Give 16618 as the dealer referral number. The company is no longer manufacturing or repairing the Breeze, but if none of the above suggestions work, you also can email us at email@example.com and we may be able to help you.
Have you checked the fuse? It is located in back of the Breeze in the fuse holder next to where the plug connects to the purifier. It uses a 1.0 Amp slow blow for 110 volt models and 0.5 Amp slow blow for 220 volt models.
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.
The problem is dust or moisture on one or more of the circuit boards, in the bottom of the unit. The problem is usually caused by resetting the cleaning reminder without actually cleaning the machine. ;-) It hasn't been difficult for me to solve so far. Remove the filter. Remove the two screws that hold on the plate where the rear switch is located. The wires are long enough that they don't need to be removed from the switch. Use a blow dryer or dry compressed air to blow off the circuit boards. ****Keep your face out of the way!!! Be sure not to get the blow dryer too close or too hot. If you have a Warm setting, use that. Good luck!
