Hi lmallu0821,

1. Make sure the safety cut-out switch on the lint screen in the back is properly engaged by the plastic plug on the screen. If this is out-of-position, nothing works (nor should it). This may fix the problem.

2. Check the fuse; if blown again, you have a short someplace that the fuse is protecting you from. Look for loose connections, or damaged components. Also make sure that nothing got left in the machine (eg. thread from cleaning rags), or any wires didn't get properly re-connected when you cleaned it.

If this doesn't fix it, write back with more details - - will the fan run, but not the O3 plates, or vice versa - - I'll need more infomation at that point.

If/when this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Fan wont turn


I have taken one apart. reassembled and the fan would not turn, although there was power to the motor and it wanted to turn.
Sorry this is long...only this is about taking the motor itself apart..and I have yet to find a replacement motor.

1. Tried a little WD 40...(only on iron motor Housing!) nothing.
2. Took apart inside of motor. some rust inside..
3. carefully rubbed clean with WD 40..
4. leaned off WD 40 with contact cleaner...
5. Then worked little bearing loose on back side.
-Kind of turned upon reassembly..
6. Found some silicone High temp lubricant and took motor inside part again.
7. a very thin coat of lubricant inside rotor.
-Re assembled yet again..began to turn at high speed, kept running..24 hrs..
- It .finally turned at silent mode. and continues to work
This may be ar beyond what you want to do, however if all else fails...what else can you do? buy another one?
Tips:
1. mark rotor holders with housing. (do not reverse.)
2. make sure you remove all lint, dust, etc inside.
3. the rotor bearing I had to work by hand again and again repeatedly syringing a little WD 40 at a time to until it turned easily.

I have an older model Flair unit. I took it apart to try and give it a good cleaning and noticed that there was a small glass bulb-looking part with one of the thin wires was broken. Of course the other...


It's attached to the pulse radio-wave ionizer. It comes on when the unit is on to show the radio wave is working. It's not needed and I've never seen a replacement but Radio Shack could probably help you replace it if you wanted.

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

My wife wanted me to take it apart to clean it properly. we have the quadra which all of you know that it's impossible to clean. Well, after cleaning it, I noticed a fuse which is permanently in place...


You can replace the fuse by soldering a new one into place -- it's a standard fuse, just match the amp rating of old to new.

Chances are though, after you do this, it will blow again. So, there's a good chance the unit is kaput.

I have extensive experience with these units to the point of even replacing the high-voltage field wires (the two fine wires which run from top to bottom) with titanium wire. There is no real good way to keep these things running properly -- they're kinda like weed whackers -- inherently problematic.

I believe you have the same problem I have with my quadra. They have a fuse that is located in a very hard to reach area in the lower section of the unit. You have to look very closely to even find it. It's sodered in place place so one can't just change the fuse and turn it back on. Mine is blown and I can't figure out how to remove it. I was wondering if I could just by pass it but that wouldn't be safe.

Won't turn on


Just wanted to make sure you inserted the carbon filter on the back before turning it on. It will not turn on without the filter in place. Also, you have to make sure the on/off switch on the back is turned on. Hope that might help.
