Hi Teresa,
that is certainly not the smell the machine should produce :)

The smells, other then fresh air, might be 'trapped' in the filter. So washing the filter (top rack of the dishwasher works for the metal mesh filters) might do the trick.

Another trick you can try is to put the purifier on the floor, turn it on high mode (away mode) and put a box over it. Let it run for an hour or two and the smells should be gone.

Make sure you have fairly new plates, to make the machine more effective.

Your ozone generator may have gone bad. It's the small black rectangular looking apparatus located near the bottom of the unit. It usually has a zip tie holding it to the circuit board. You will have to take the Flair out of it's case to see it. Make sure it's unplugged and remove the bolt from the bottom of the unit. You can then slide the framework out of the casing. It's also possible that it's time to replace your Ceramic Ozone Plates. They have a life expectancy of 2 to 4 years. The Flair has two of them that slide into slots in the rear of the unit. You can see them when you remove the washable filter. All items can be purchased on Ebay. DM

My flair unit does not smell of ozone. Why ??


It properly needs the filter and interior cleaned. Especially, if it has run a long time without being cleaned. Or there is nothing in the household air at this time to trip the Ozone producing switch.

I have the Flair Air Purifier. Everything except the light seems to be working. When i push the button, the fan jumps into high mode for a couple of hours as it is supposed to, but I don't notice any...


if you pull the unit out of the black box ( one screw on bottom) and then turn the unit up side down, their is a glass fuse in it. See if it is blown, their is also a fuse just for the ozone part it is marked F21 on the same board, it is soldered in the board, it is a black round fuse marked 400ma 250v on some models

No ozone smell


You probably have a burned out high voltage transformer. That's what produces the ozone. Helpful hint...........the high voltage transformer is also the one used in bug zappers

HELLO AND GOOD MORNING I HAVE A FLAIR AIR


Open the back and change the Ozone plate. then slide out the ION plate and clean it with denatured alcohol. If no light inside, you may have to replace the bulb and / or starter. Hope that helps.

I loaned my son my Flair, and when I got it back it no longer makes the air smell "ionized", and the sanitizer button does not seem to work either...

New house off gassing


You need to be careful of the saturation. It is an electrical apliance and can be a fire hazard if the fumes are too great. But from my experience with my Flair Classic it will diminish the fumes and smell, but will not completely eliminate it. The paint will have to cure. The unit does work wonders on smoke and musty smells though.
